 Bashir Bulabuduwaye, is said to be the chief executioner of the group, and has reportedly killed over a thousand people before his surrender.
According to a counter insurgency expert in the Lake Chad Basin, Zagazola Makama, the executioner, Bashir Bulabuduwaye, who was a senior commander of the Boko Haram sect, surrendered to the troops on Monday in Banki, Bama Local Government Area of the state.
In a report on Friday with a focus on the activities of the terrorists, Makama said Bulabuduwaye was “Boko Haram’s chief executioner who has killed at least 1,000 people who were captured and sentenced to death by the group.”
“Bulabuduwaye was known to be an official who carried out sentence of death on condemned persons, captured military men and civilians when Abubakar Shekau was leader of the group.
After the death of Shekau, Bulabuduwaye formed a camp in Kote village of Banki, where he was hiding with other fighters.
He surrendered along with his family due to the sustained offensives launched by troops of operation Hadin Kai.
“It was difficult for him to access food and other logistics, coupled with the flooding which already ravaged most of their settlements.
He also feared battlefield elimination by ISWAP,“ Makama narrated.
