A top fighter in Boko Haram camp, who just surrendered to the military in Borno, has confessed that they were spiritually misdirected by the leadership of the group.

“I am not sure if our spiritual direction is correct,” he said, adding that because of the battle Boko Haram is fast losing, “more fighters are ready to surrender, but they are uncertain of what fate awaits them.”
The top terrorist fighter, who surrendered along with his wife on May 29, said that he joined ISWAP/Boko Haram in 2015 and took part in terrorist operations in Arege, Kangarwa, Metele and Mallam Fatori.

He said that his decision to surrender was as a result of constant artillery and air bombardments launched by the Nigerian army, adding that such attacks have greatly affected their plans and dampened their morale.
