Boko Haram is Turning to Cannibalism to Feed Their Fighters

Things must not be going so well for terrorists right now, with ISIS making ridiculously laughable training videos and Boko Haram turning to cannibalism to feed their fighters. Yes, you read that right: Boko Haram is killing non-combatant members to use as food for the fighters.

Members of the violent Nigerian Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, who have been chased into the Magumeri forest havereportedly begun to eat each other after being stranded for days without food or water. Magumeri forest is approximately 150 kilometres from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

Mallam Momodu Bukar, a suspected member of the outlawed sect told reporters in Maiduguri that the group was beginning to slaughter non-combatant members to provide food for the fighters. He fled the forest camp when he realized that he might be next in line. “I thank God that I escaped because I would have been slaughtered by now to provide meals for my colleagues at the camp,” Bukar said.

He said that the Boko Haram sect members had been in the forest since May, after being kicked out of the Marte Local Government Area by the Joint Task Force called “Operation Restore Order” after a state of emergency had been declared in Nigeria.

“Our group, consisting of about 300 well-armed combatants, headed for Magumeri on the orders of the sect leader, Abubakar Shekau, shortly before the military took over Camp Marte. We have been wandering in the forest. We have exhausted our food and water supply, and so, everybody became hungry,” Bukar narrated.

Well, that can’t possibly be good for morale. Starving men getting killed off to serve as food for other starving men? Boko Haram can probably expect a lot more defectors in the near future then.
