Boko Haram flees camps following flooding; military bombardment

2 min read

Boko Haram insurgents and their families are reportedly deserting their camps in large numbers following the wreckage caused by the flooding of their enclaves.

Last week, over 70 suspected Boko Haram members got drowned in a river following air bombardment by Operations Hadin Kai in Borno State, according to sources.

Over 200 insurgents, including five commanders, were also said to have been killed at the weekend as a result of the airstrikes by the Nigerian military. The overflow of the Yedzaram River was believed to have affected several insurgents’ camps in Sheuri, Kumshe ward and Gaizuwa axis on Sunday morning and prompted the relocation.

The terrorists have reportedly been forced to move to safe locations on the fringes of Samiba Forest.

It was further learnt that the insurgents had run out of logistics and weapons, and relocated pending when they would get supply and strategise.

Similarly, a top Boko Haram commander Goni Farooq was said to have surrendered to the troops at Banki Junction in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State on Sunday.

Security source revealed that he came out with a motorcycle, rocket-propelled grenade, Anti-Aircraft gun, AK47, five magazines with live ammunition, solar panels and clothes among others.
