Ex-corper Amuta rejects freedom, joins Boko Haram terrorists.

Recall that last year, we at nyscinfo.com, reported about the abduction of a Corps Member named Abraham Amuta by the Boko Haram terrorists in Borno.

Daily Trust Newspaper reported that yesterday, the Benue-born former National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member rejected an offer for freedom by the Boko Haram terrorists.

Instead, he reportedly told negotiators who went to the Sambisa Forest to secure his release to go back home, saying he had renounced his Christian faith and is now a member of the dreaded Boko Haram sect.

Amuta, a 2018 Batch B Stream 1 Corps member, was observing the one-year mandatory service in Borno State when he was abducted on 13th March, 2019 on Gwoza-Maiduguri road. He was heading to Chibok to deliver humanitarian assistance.

He was travelling alongside a 58-year-old man, Moses Oyeleke of Living Faith Church in Maiduguri and few others, including a schoolgirl, Ndagiliya Ibrahim Umar.

Pastor Oyeleke was released in November 2019, after he alleged that the sect tried to convert him to Islam. According to the newspaper, negotiation for the release of Amuta and the other captives continued until yesterday when the process collapsed at the last hour following the ex-corps member’s decision to remain with his captors.
