According to the Minister of Communication, the six men were on their way to a neighbouring nation when they were arrested.
Issa Tchiroma, speaking to CRTV on Saturday, alleged that the suspects have pleaded guilty of perpetrating the Jakiri attack which left one gendarme officer dead on November 6.
Mr Tchiroma added that the suspects were caught with ammunition.
It's not yet clear if the suspects have actually made such confessions.
Under what conditions did they make such 'declarations'?
