Hunters kill dreaded Boko Haram leader Bulayaga in Adamawa

A group of fearless hunters have reportedly gunned down a notorious Boko Haram leader known as ‘Bulayaga’.

Bulayaga, who is responsible for killing an Army commando, Bukar Jimerta, a month ago, was shot dead on Wednesday, August 16, in Adamawa state.

Bulayaga’s lifeless body was displayed in a pick-up van.

On Tuesday, at least 10 Boko Haram fighters were killed by soldiers during an ambush at a village near Maiduguri, Borno State.

Deputy Director, Army Public Relations at the 8 Task Force Division, Timothy Antigha, revealed that the operation was executed in Maza village of Mafa Local Government Area.

Antigha said: “The troops of 8 Task Force Division have neutralized 10 terrorists in Maza village in Marte Local Government Areas of Borno State.

The terrorists fell into an ambush laid by troops at about 9 pm last night, as they attempted to sneak back into their swampy hideouts in the Lake Chad.

Items recovered from the terrorists include 10 bicycles, 11 carts containing food items and 2 cows.

In a related development, troops also recovered 50 cows abandoned by fleeing terrorists, during clearance operations conducted in Danari and Mowo villages in Monguno Local Government Area.

It should be noted that as the noose continues to tighten on Boko Haram terrorists, coupled with the wet season, they have resorted to the use of bicycles and charts as means of transportation.”
