A former Boko Haram terrorist who participated in the brutal murder of many innocent people has shared his experience after repenting.
After being captured by the army, a former Boko Haram terrorist has confessed of his crimes saying that he's now a changed man.

According The Cable reports, Abdulkadir Abubakar revealed details of how he alongside other terrrorists massacred about 58 people in 2017.

Abubakar was arrested by the military at Buni Yadi when he allegedly went on an espionage mission ahead of the insurgents’ plot to attack the commander of the Special Force Training School. The insurgents blamed the military officer for killing one of their field commanders, Abu Fatima.

In a brief chat with TheCable, Abubakar confessed to taking part in the Buni Yadi massacre and the kidnap of Chibok girls two months later.

“Myself and two other Boko Haram commanders, Abu Fatima and Paper, led most of the attacks on schools in Yobe between 2013 and 2014,” he told TheCable.

He says the horrific attacks on schools and students were coordinated and executed through intelligence gathering and strategies mapped out under his supervision.

So changed is he now — or appears to be — that he does not have any kind words for Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the group which forbids Western education and wants to set up Islamic rule over Nigeria.

He claims Shekau “unilaterally” ordered attacks on schools, mosques, churches and markets, and also ordered abduction and rape.

“We were also the ones behind the abduction of students at Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok. We also carried out attacks on schools in Potiskum, Mamudo, Damagun, Wagir and Ngarzarma, all in Yobe state,” he recalls.

“I wholeheartedly regret my actions and hope the Almighty Allah will forgive me. Allah said he will forgive whoever repents and asks him for forgiveness. I have repented and seek forgiveness.”

He might have been forgiven — who knows? — but will the grieving parents and the entire Buni Yadi community forgive him?

Abubakar and his terrorist gangs not only snuffed life put of 58 teenage students, they made sure to destroy the school — once the pride of the society.

The school, established in 1994, represented Nigeria in Geo-Challenges at Florida, USA, in 2002; was state runner-up in the 4th Annual National Essay Competition for secondary schools organised by the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) in 2003; came first in the 3rd National Quiz Competition on Capital Market for secondary schools organised by Security Exchange Commission (SEC); was state winner of the 6th and 10th NSE Annual National Essay Competition for Secondary Schools in 2005 and 2011 respectively; and was first at the zonal chess competition held in Jalingo, Taraba state, in 2012.

Today, the college still stands grim amid rubbles and ashes, making it appear as though a cremation has just occurred.

The aftermath has so erased its records of academic excellence that nothing seems to be known of its prior achievement.
