How my Boko Haram colleagues amputated my hand, leg

Muhammad Abubakar, a 31-year-old self confessed Boko Haram member, on Thursday said his hand and leg were chopped off because he was planning to surrender and quit the battle in Sambisa forest.

Mr. Abubakar disclosed this to journalists in Maiduguri during a briefing organised by Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, to update journalists on ‘Operation Rescue Finale’.

Mr. Abubakar said he was punished because of his decision to renounce his membership of the group and embrace peace.

“I had told a friend, Hassan Dan-Guduma, that I was going to surrender as the movement had no meaning to me anymore.

“Hassan Dan-Guduma initially bought my idea but later betrayed me. Shortly after our discussion, he went and came back with three others whom I am sure he must have told them about our plan to surrender.

“They said I was planning to exposed them to the Nigerian Government, so they did all this to me.

“After they chopped off my right hand and left leg, they threw me into a culvert where I was left struggling, until soldiers came and rescued me.

“All I can say is that all we had been told by Boko Haram leaders, were lies and misleading. I never joined them to kill anyone,” he said.

Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander, said Mr. Abubakar was still undergoing interrogation.

“You can see what they did to one of their own because he decided to quit,” said Mr. Irabor.

    Bogus lie, all he had to do was to escape and return to the refugee camp or quietly join sojajin Najeriya, he did not need to suffer double amputation. It is more likely he was rustling a cow somewhere and the Fulanis treated him with amputation.

      They are actually obeying your so called Jesus command in luke 19:27

      Jesus commanded that anyone who does not believe in him be slaughtered and kill

        I know you do not read the Bible much. Jesus was telling a parable, and you can see clearly if you do not just quote out of context. That is why up till today you cannot see someone who is killing in Jesus’s Name. All Muslims are NOT terrorist, But all Terrorist ARE Muslim.
