For having a secret plan to surrender, a high ranking Boko Haram Commander was reportedly killed by his colleagues after his plan was busted.
The Boko Haram Commander whose name was given as Ali Garga, a Fulani man from Taraba, had plans to surrender and escape with about three hundred captives from their camp. The deceased who was a very priceless asset because of his extraordinary geographical knowledge of the busy terrain in the northeast that he possessed as a herdsman, was forcefully conscripted by the Mamman Nur’s faction three years ago after his cows were seized by the insurgents.
The Nation reported that Ali Garga was making the right contact even with foreign influence, to facilitate who would rescue him and others before he was killed.
“Gaga was trained how to fight wars and engage in combat operations. He also possessed an extra ordinary ability of knowing the terrrain because he was a herdsman. This elevated him to a level of a Commanding Officer by the Mamman Nur’s Faction.
“Gaga was not interested in holding captives for ransom like others. What is paramount to him is getting his livestock and continue what he was diong as a hardsman and reunite with his family,”the Sources explained.
