A chief executioner of Boko Haram, Bashir Bulabuduwaye, has surrendered to the troops of the Nigerian Army in Borno State.
It was gathered that Bulabuduwaye and his family members surrendered on Monday to the troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Banki, Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

Security sources disclosed that the Boko Haram chief executioner was the official who carried out death sentence on captured military men and civilians when Abubakar Shekau was a leader of the terrorist group.

A source revealed that Bulabuduwaye was among the commanders, who fled last year’s invasion of the terror group’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest area by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters which resulted in the death of Shekau in May 2021.

The source added: “Bulabuduwaye and his team of executors had murdered at least 1,000 persons captured and sentenced to death.

“He broke away after refusing to pledge his allegiance to the Islamic State, to form a camp in Kote village in the axis of Banki, where he was hiding with other fighters.

“He surrendered due to the sustained intelligence-led air strikes, heavy artillery bombardment and ground offensives by the Nigerian Military troops of Operation Hadin Kai.

“It was difficult for him to access food and other logistics coupled with the flooding which already ravaged most of their settlement.

“He also fears battlefield elimination by ISWAP, being one of those fingered to be eliminated for refusing to pay allegiance,” the military source disclosed.
