“We’re hiding in these villages because ISWAP will fight us even if we flee to Lake Chad,” he added.

Rescued victims

The rebels’ combat capacity has been diminished in recent months as a result of the continuous bombardments from both the Nigerian troops and troops of the multinational joint task force in the North East, with many of them surrendering to Nigerian troops.
