The Boko Haram members are now fleeing from Sambisa forest to local government areas across Borno State owing to strange developments in the forest, believed to be a spiritual attack.

One of the arrested sect members, Kolo Mustapha, told Dailypost that snakes were attacking them in the forest.

"They (our leaders) told us that it was the people of Chibok that are hunting us through diabolical means in the form of snakes.

"Most of us are fleeing because there are too many snakes now in the forest, once they bite, they disappeared and the victims do not last for 24 hours.

"We were told that the people of Chibok local government are the ones turning into snake and attacking us in the forest", he disclosed."
