Dwarf Boko Haram Suspect Reveals How Much He Got For Facilitating Suicide Bomb Attack (Photo)

Abubakar Kori, a dwarf, who facilitated the suicide bombing activities of Boko Haram insurgents, said he was paid not less than N5,000 for each suicide bomb attack carried out by the insurgents in Maiduguri.

Mr Kori, 25, is among the 22 people arrested by the police in Borno and Yobe for their alleged involvement in suicide bombing activities carried out by the insurgents.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria that he received N5,000 as payment for facilitating the execution of each suicide bomb attack in Maiduguri and its environs.

Mr Kori, who was a security guard at a fuel dispensing station in Dalori area of Maiduguri, said he participated in several suicide bomb attacks in recent months in the metropolis.

“My role is to keep the Improvised Explosive Device, IEDs, for onward delivery to another person who will carry out the attack. “On different occasions, two of my acquaintances gave a parcel to keep for somebody, who will come and take it.

“I normally kept the parcel in my duty post; the appointed person would come and pick it; after successful delivery, they paid me N5,000. “We reside in the same neighborhood in Maiduguri; they always told me that the parcel was given to them by one Ba’Adam, and asked me to keep it. “They introduced me to Ba’Adam, who is the mastermind of the attacks,” he revealed.

On his part, Adam Mustapha, a.k.a Ba’Adam, admitted that he coordinated various suicide bomb attacks, which resulted in the death of hundreds of people in Maiduguri.

Ba’Adam, 20, narrated that he had coordinated several bomb attacks at Bulukuntu, Baga road, 333 Artillery gate, Customs, Post Office and Muna Garage areas of Maiduguri.

“On two occasions, I was paid N200,000 for the successful execution of bomb attacks. “Most of the time I had to pester them before payment could be made to me,” he said.

When asked whether he had cause at any time to regret his actions, Ba’Adam said that he was never remorseful at any given time.

Another suspect, Ibrahim Mala, 48, also admitted to aiding suicide bomb attacks in Maiduguri, sales of rustled animals and supply of logistics to the insurgents in the bush.

Mr Mala, a butcher and resident of Dalori-Kakere village on the outskirts of Maiduguri, revealed that the insurgents were supplying sheep and provided him with N180,000 loans to enable him to run his business.

“They paid me N5,000 for safe keeping of IEDs, and they also sent me on errands to buy consumable items for them.

“I bought the items at the market and kept it at my home; some persons would come at night, pick and deliver same to members of the group hiding in the forest.
