March 11, 2014 – Hungry, Wounded Boko Haram Terrorists Captured In Lake Chad; Terrorists Confess, Plead 4 Mercy
Over 12 powerless Boko Haram militants have been captured in Lake Chad.
According to the Defence Hqtrs, scores of severely injured terrorists who escaped from various camps during military raids have been captured.
Today in Abuja, Major General Chris Olukolade said the arrested terrorists are currently making useful statement to interrogators.
He further said some of them were captured by soldiers in Alargarmo, Dikwa, Kukawa and Cross Kauwa.
In his own words:
“In their confessions, it was revealed that some of the camps have been disbanded following the directive of their clerics who declared that the operation of the sect had come to an end as the mission could no longer be sustained. The terrorists who are giving useful information as to the locations of their remnant forces, are full of apologies and pleas for their lives to be spared promising to cooperate.
“They confirmed that starvation was a major problem in addition to ceaseless bombardments on the camp locations even when they kept relocating. They also confirm that several members of the group have been wounded and no treatment was forth coming. Troops have continued their assault on other locations across the states covered by the state of emergency.”
Members of the public have started rushing there to sight see the wounded terrorists.
Major Olukolade advised people to desist from doing so for their own safety.
