Things are no longer the way they used to be in the camp of Boko Haram.

Latest reports speak of growing rebellion inside the Sambisa Forest stronghold of the terrorists in Borno State, North-East Nigeria.

One of the reports, in Daily Trust, said that a growing number of insurgents, “including those who willingly joined the sect and those that were coerced to join” are now showing “signs of resistance to operations” as ordered by their commanders.

This, according to the report, has angered the sect’s commanders, who have resorted to the summary execution of anyone who resists orders to go for an operation.

At least “two suspected Boko Haram fighters have fled to Bama in Borno State from their camps at the Sambisa Forest over killing of non-conforming members,” the report said.

It quoted Mustapha Yunus, a youth from Bama, as saying that the two that fled are well known sect members. “So when we sighted them (in Bama) we went after them,” he said. Yunus disclosed that one of the Boko Haram members was arrested but the other escaped. “After interrogation, the one that was arrested confessed that they fled from Sambisa because of threats, while the other one fled out of fear he’d be killed without opportunity to explain their exit from their enclave,” he said.
