Teenager, Zahra Umoru said that the terrorists
always knew when the soldiers were advancing
on them and had enough time to flee with their
captives before the troops arrived.

According to a captive recently freed from Boko
Haram, the terrorist group usually had inside
information on the operations of the Nigerian
Army.
Teenager, Zahra Umoru said that the terrorists
always knew when the soldiers were advancing
on them and had enough time to flee with their
captives before the troops arrived.
“When they captured us, we were taken to a
house in Gwoza. When they heard soldiers were
in Madagali, they took us to Peta where we lived
under trees,” Umoru told The Cable at Malkohi, a
camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in
Yola, Adamawa state.
“We don’t know how Boko Haram gets its
information, but they always know when the
soldiers are coming. If there’s something like
that, they just tell us to pack our things and run.
The night we left Gwoza, we just finished
cooking, but we were not allowed to eat the
food; we were just packed and left,” she added.
Nigerian soldiers have rescued almost 1000
women and children after an operation in
Sambisa Forest, a notorious Boko Haram
stronghold.
