He was handcuffed and on interrogation revealed so many things. On transit to Geidam, Jibrin employed his skills as a weapon instructor, snatched a gun from one of his escorts, over powered the other and blew himself up.

His revelations however led to the arrest of some of his terror-brethren, while many are believed to be among the troops in both Gombe and Geidam Battalions.
