“He was also heard to have complained bitterly on the New Year’s Eve air strikes, which lasted for several hours, killing over 16 of his cohorts and destroyed his newly built house as well as his enclave.

“According to the source, Dankarami also expressed profound concern over the dire situation he has found himself in since it was becoming obvious that the military are bent on eliminating him at all cost.
