8 Repentant Boko Haram Terrorists Die After Mistaking Explosives For Scrap Metal In Borno


Eight repentant Boko Haram fighters were on Monday killed after an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) exploded in the North East of the Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

The men were said to have sneaked out of Bama to deal in scrap metals with some terrorists in a market known as ‘Daula’ on the outskirts of Goniri village before the incident happened.

The former terrorists, who were among the 1,000 reintegrated into the community and resettled at Government Girls Secondary School in Bama, received the scraps from some Boko Haram fighters hiding in Sambisa forest without knowing that an IED abandoned during a military offensive was among the items they were carrying.

Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert, reportedly got the information about the incident from an intelligence officer.
