Ex Boko Haram Commander, Rugurugu Reveals Why He Left The Group To Become An Islamic Preacher

A former top Boko Haram leader, Adamu Rugurugu has revealed how he left the terrorist group to become an Islamic preacher.

The repentant Boko Haram militant who had risen to the rank of war commander, a counsellor and adviser for Boko Haram leaders in an exclusive interview with The Daily Trust newspaper noted that he led terrorists to different attacks under the influence of drugs.

The father of 15 children who hails from Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State stated that he spent 10 years in the Sambisa forest fighting for the Boko Haram sect.

Revealing why he left the dreaded sect to become an Islamic preacher, Adamu Rugurugu said; "I read deeply into the Quran and discovered that we went astray. I told them that what we were doing does not please God."

He stated further; "They said I wouldn’t leave the enclave but I defied their threat and surrendered. I later made some calls that yielded results. I thank God for all the people that knew the truth and surrendered through me. Many of them are commanders at the Sambisa Forest."

Recall that the dreaded Boko Haram sect has killed many Nigerians, especially those living in the northern region of Nigeria and destroyed many properties worth billions of naira.
