The Boko Haram sect is currently in crisis due to a shortage of food and weapons, according to reports.
Chaos hits sect over lack of food, weapons
The Boko Haram sect is also said to be breaking apart due to a lack of fuel.
The group is also said to be breaking apart due to a lack of fuel, Reuters reports.
Women recently freed from terrorist stronghold, Sambisa Forest said that the group’s members had been complaining about lacking ammunition and fuel since last month.
“One evening in April, Boko Haram followers stood before us and said 'Our leaders don't want to give us enough fuel and guns and now the soldiers are encroaching on us in Sambisa. We will leave you.” 18-year old Binta Ibrahim said.
“They threatened us but after they went we were happy and prayed the soldiers would come and save us,” she added.
Her account was supported by another victim, Aisha Abbas, who said that the number of weapons carried by the terrorists had reduced in April.
The Nigerian Army has rescued about 700 women from the forest over the past week and also recently captured a man believed to be the sect’s fuel and food supplier.
