I have killed 18 people- 17 year old Boko Haram suspect confesses

60 secs Minimum - 8 mins Maximum Read
17 year old Boko Haram suspect, Ali Mustafa,

Tuesday confessed to have killed 18 people since he was forced to join

the terror group three years ago. Ali confessed to the crime when he

was paraded by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp

(NSCDC).



Ali told newsmen that himself and other young boys were abducted from

Konduga after an attack carried out by the group.



He said during his stay with the group, he was trained in the use of

assault rifles and other dangerous weapons which he used to execute

his victims.



"I was forced to join Boko Haram about three years ago. Boko Haram

insurgents came to our village and forcefully took many of us away. We

were kept in the bush camp near Kala Balge and from there we carried

out various operations, during which I personally killed 18 persons.

I can handle all kinds of guns including AK-47 and AA (anti aircraft) rifle".



Ali said he ran away from the group recently when himself and two

others were sent to spy on the city for a possible attack.



"I was tired of killing people against my wish, so I told my two other

colleagues with whom we were asked to go on a spying mission that we

should abandon the mission and run. So I came to Maiduguri to search

for my parents in the camps.



But some IDPs who knew me as member of Boko Haram decided to report me

to the security people" he said.
