Details from the interrogation of Abdul Qaqa, spokesman of the Boko
Haram sect have revealed how their leader, Imam Shekau enforces
compliance on members while eliminating those opposed to his blood
letting thirst.

Sources informed Africanexaminer that Qaqa who goes by several
pseudo names told the State Security Service, SSS, operatives grilling
him that some members who wanted to opt out of the killer sect paid the
supreme price on the orders of Shekau who ordered their killing.

According to several members of the sect which has links in neighboring
Niger and Chad republics had been killed either for allegedly sabotaging
the sect or for  voicing dissent.

He said the practice was that such people marked for killing are usually
assassinated in the presence of their wife, children and other close family
members to instill fear in others.

Qaqa, 42 who lrahman Abdullahi as occasion demands bolted from
Bauchi prison during one of the attacks by the sect on the police station
where he was being detained.

Wednesday holds the Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Social Work
and Administration from Ramat Polytechnic in Maiduguri.

Qaqa revealed that some of his colleagues were already tired of their
violent activities but were scared of a reprisal by Shekau who would most
likely kill them.

His words: “Most of us were tired of fighting but we couldn't come out to
say so because of fear of reprisal from Leader Imam Shekau on
dissenting members.”

Government Area of Kogi State.
