Arrested Fleeing 50 Boko Haram Insurgents Plead for Mercy

LAGOS SEPTEMBER 24TH (URHOBOTODAY)-This is no good time for members of Boko Haram insurgents as no fewer than fifty members of the sect fleeing from war zone after killing of their leader Abubakar Shekau pleaded for mercy from Nigerian security forces.
Our source hinted that the fleeing insurgents also promised to cooperate with security operatives by offering them useful information on the whereabouts of other insurgents as well as other group holding the Chibok girls.

The arrested men were also said to have confessed to being in the group that fought at Bama and Konduga where they were overwhelmed by Nigerian military force.
Our source revealed that the arrested insurgents who are currently being held by Nigerian Army and might have been detained at Biu Barrack were heading towards Gombe State when they were arrested hiding in a truck carrying sheeps, goat and other things.
They were said to have been busted when some youth vigilante members in Biu suspected that the truck carrying sheep and goats might have other things hidden in it.
The truck was thereafter searched thoroughly and the 50 young men were found hiding under the truck.
A separate security source confirmed that the arrested men, most of whom were between the ages of 18 and 25 and fluent in Kanuri and Hausa, confessed to being Boko Haram gunmen and were fleeing following the reported killing of their leader, Abubakar Shekau, by the military in Konduga last week.
