YERWA EXPRESS NEWS has learned from credible and redoubtable sources Sunday night that over 400 Boko Haram terrorists and their families have relocated to Bazamri, a wasteland close to Konduga Local Government Area of Borno after massive defeat by troops of the Nigerian Army.
This paper on Saturday reported how over 70 of them drowned in a river, after intense military airstrikes in Gaftari and Shehuri, two villages located between Bama and Konduga.
Our sources confirmed that the remaining terrorists, along with their families, relocated to a new settlement at Bazamri, few hours after they buried over 40 of their drowned members, who they had recovered from a river intersecting the village.
They were believed to have drowned in the river while escaping airstrikes, as most of them had already sustained injuries that were difficult to survive.
'They relocated to Bazamari, a bush located east of Konduga. They moved with their families numbering about 400 after admitting that they were defeated by the Nigerian Army,' the source said.
YERWA EXPRESS NEWS also learned from the source that the terrorists have run out of logistics and weapons, which was another reason for their retreat and relocation.
Conflict Reporting is dangerous and risky. Our reporters constantly face life-threatening challenges, sometimes surviving ambushes, kidnap attempts and attacks by the whiskers as they travel and go into communities to get authentic and firsthand information. But we dare it every day, nonetheless, in order to keep you informed of the true situation of the victims, the trends in the conflicts and ultimately help in peace building processes. But these come at huge cost to us. We are therefore appealing to you to help our cause by donating to us through any of the following means. You can also donate working tools, which are even more primary to our work. We thank you sincerely as you help our cause.
