Members of the Boko Haram sect have eliminated one of their Amir Jaysh (Leader), Abou Hassana who was accused of attempting to factionalize the terrorist group.
Abou Hassana was killed alongside three of his alleged accomplices in front of other fighters at the Mandara Mountain in Gwoza Local Government area of Borno State.
Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad reported that Ali Ngulde, the second-most-high-ranking Boko Haram leader, ordered the elimination after they were sentenced to death for their crimes.
Abou Hassana was trying to raise an independent faction within Boko Haram to spearhead his own terror campaigns within the Koltafirgi village” also known as Gaizuwa in Sambisa.
He was replaced by Alhaji Ari Hajja Fusam, an indigene of Bama who was leading the Boko Haram terrorists in Gaizuwa before they were dislodged by the Nigerian Military after they suffered heavy losses. Alhaji Ari Hajja Fusam and Ba’a Issah were promoted to the ranks of Amir Fiye while Bakura Jega, a Former Nakib, was promoted to Khaid.
Muke, a 33-year-old Khaid of Mandara Mountain, Ali Ghana, Khaid of Ngauri, located in the North of Banki, Abbah Tukur, and Abu Isa, are to maintain their positions as Khaids.
