A 14-year old Nigerian boy, who was abducted and forced to fight as a soldier for insurgent group, Boko Haram has come out to confess to innumerable atrocities committed by the sect members after he was able to escape from their captivity.
The teenager, simply identified as Alaji, who spoke to Al-Jazeera confessed to the inhumane treatment meted out to captives and the total disregard for human lives in the camps of the terrorists.
Alaji revealed that on one occasion the leader of the sect shot two of his commanders after they saw defeat at the hand of Nigerian troops in Gamboru area of Borno State.
His words: “The biggest loss by Boko Haram I witnessed was in Gamboru in the hands of the military; the leader was so furious that he shot and killed two commanders right before us.
“The most frightening battle was the attack on Baga, when the town was attacked. Initially, it was difficult to break through.
“The residents came after us. We retreated but we were able to encircle the base of the multinational task force; there we seized equipment and ammunition like tanks, motors and shell.”
