More than 95% of Boko Haram adherents, particularly the organization’s original members, are either dead or have surrendered, according to information released by the Borno State Government.

According to Daily Trust, Brig. Gen. Ishaq Abdullahi (Rtd), the Special Advisor on Security Affairs to the Borno State Government, disclosed this information on Sunday during an interview in Maiduguri.

Given that about ten or so of the original members of the gang may still be alive, Abdullahi claimed that the leadership of the lethal group was in disarray.

He said that a number of the senior commanders lost their lives as a result of leadership conflicts between fighters from the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP), Boko Haram terrorists, and supporters of the late Abubakar Shekau, who passed away in 2021.

“Less than ten individuals may still be alive today out of the 300 of them who founded the Boko Haram sect prior to 2009.” The game of powers has caused even the ten leaders who are still in disarray.

“Some are dead from gunshot wounds, some from military actions, some from drowning during rainy seasons, some from snake bites in the bush, and some from the mass surrenders we have seen over the last two years.”

More than 90% of the ardent supporters of Boko Haram doctrine have perished as a result of internal strife among them over leadership roles, particularly following Shekau’s passing.

“However, a number of crises among them have claimed the lives of numerous ISWAP top commanders,” he stated.
