It’s a scam: How our leaders send us to die in battle – Boko Haram ex-commander opens up

Former Boko Haram commander Adamu Rugurugu in northeast Nigeria is certain that the terrorist organisation is nothing more than a ruse.

Rugurugu admitted to PR Nigeria that the group’s commanders hide in jungles from Nigerian military most of the time and send low-ranking members to be wasted on battlefields.

According to the Daily Nigerian, the repentant insurgent revealed that the kingpin brainwashed the rank and file by convincing them that if they die as terrorists, they will go to heaven.

He claimed that most of the bandits and armed criminals were abducted by the ring-leaders who keep them in Sambisa Forest and conscript them into their evil ideologies.

His confession:

“The leaders are not attending the battle, it is only the low-ranking members that carry guns, have you ever heard of any ‘Khadi’ or ‘Wazir’ leading the battle on the frontlines? They will say you are doing this thing for the sake of God and when you are killed, paradise will be your final abode, I swear to God this is a scam, you are not going to any paradise.

“We cheated ourselves, and we will not go back again since God has now delivered us out of this predicament, we returned to the community and soldiers have accepted us.

“The leaders are not attending the battle, it is only the low-ranking members that carry guns, have you ever heard of any ‘Khadi’ or ‘Wazir’ leading the battle on the frontlines? They will say you are doing this thing for the sake of God and when you are killed, paradise will be your final abode, I swear to God this is a scam, you are not going to any paradise.”

Rugurugu’s message to other terrorists who still carry arms is that those who surrendered to troops did so because they are in search of a better life.
