Floods have run rampage on Boko Haram/Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists enclaves in Sambisa Forest, forcing hundreds of the terrorists and their families to desert their camps and move to safe locations on the fringes of Forest.
The devastating floods are being linked with the mass surrender of the terrorists who saw their camps destroyed which exposed them to hardship and severe living conditions, hunger and disease.
It was such that a source noted that “this shows that the gods of the land are angry with them. And with the intensity of the floods in their most secured areas which they have vacated, this might be the end of the road for these terrorists fighters.”
Added to the lack of familiar ground to hide, Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter jets and Nigerian Army troops are piling pressures on the one who are running out of the enclaves.
Over the weekend, 70 terrorists fighters got drowned and over 200 others, including five commanders, were killed following the airstrikes by NAF fighter jets.
Sources confirmed that the flooding was caused by the overflowing of the Yedzaram River, which sacked the terrorists’ camps in Sheuri, Kumshe ward and Gaizuwa axis by Sunday morning, prompting their relocation.
It was further learnt that the insurgents had run out of logistics and weapons, and relocated pending when they would get supply and strategise.
Similarly, Goni Farooq, a top Boko Haram commander reportedly surrendered to the troops at Banki Junction in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State on Sunday.
The security source revealed that he came out with a motorcycle, RPG, Anti- Aircraft gun, AK47, 5 magazines with live ammunition, solar panels and clothes among others.
