Boko Haram commander killed over ‘planned surrender’


A Boko Haram commander was killed in Nigeria by his comrades over his alleged plan to surrender and handover hundreds of hostages to the Nigerian military.

According to agency reports, Ali Gaga was shot and killed on Thursday by other commanders in the IS-affiliated faction of Boko Haram after they uncovered his plan to surrender to Nigerian troops fighting the jihadist group in the Lake Chad region.
Gaga had arranged to rescue 300 hostages being held by the Islamists and hand them over to troops before turning himself in.

More than 27,000 people are thought to have been killed in the nine-year Boko Haram insurgency that has triggered a humanitarian crisis and left 1.8 million people still without homes.
