“He was the deputy of the late Ali Ngulde, and apart from Shekau, nobody killed human beings like him from Sambisa forest and Bayan Dutsen Gwoza.
“He was a crude killer. His foot terrorists in Gwoza areas constantly instil fear in communities, farmers and commuters along Pulka, Bankin, Bama and Gwoza Mubi routes.
“They take no prisoners, and people are slaughtered in their farms on a weekly basis. Gwoza people will surely celebrate his demise,” the source said.
Recall that Abubakar Shekau, a dreaded leader of Boko Haram also died during a deadly confrontation with the ISWAP fighters in May 2021.
