Boko Haram Leader Shekau Not Deposed – Military Sources

Boko Haram emir Abubakar Shekau makes his first major video appearance

Military sources have waved off reports on the Sheikh Abubakar Shekau had been shot and deposed as leader of Islamist sect group, Boko Haram.

According to the sources, the intention of the false report is to mislead both the government and members of the public.

“It is not true,” a senior army officer said about the report.

Also on Wednesday, the defence headquarters disclosed that the joint intelligence sharing and military cooperation between the Nigeria and Niger Republic has helped to foil the plan by some Boko Haram insurgents that escaped the onslaught by the troops of the Joint Task Force (JTF), to regroup for counter-offensive.

Meanwhile, Chairman, Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution on Security Challenges in the North (Amnesty Committee) and the minister of special duties, Alhaji Tanimu Turaki, SAN, has refused to speak on the purported overthrow of the Boko Haram boss.

Turaki who recently announced a ceasefire deal with the sect had maintained that the Amnesty Committee is negotiating with “authentic” Boko Haram.

Shekau had released a video to dismiss the reports of a ceasefire deal, but Turaki had said the committee negotiated the deal with Shekau’s deputy Sheikh Abdulazeez.

Shekau had in the video released after the announcement of the ceasefire agreement, disowned Sheikh Abdulazeez.

He said: “We are stating it categorically that we are not in any dialogue or ceasefire agreement with anyone. And we have never asked anybody in the name Abdulazeez to represent me, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of this movement.

“I swear by Allah that Abdulazeez or whatever he calls himself did not get any authority from me to represent me in any capacity. I do not know him. And if we per adventure encounter Abulazeez and his group, I swear by Allah we are going to mete them with the grave judgment that Allah has prescribed for their likes in the holy book.”


  • Even if Shekau don’t believe this,he is finished even before his capture or death which ever come first.The moment there is a crack in his terrorist group that is the begining of his fall for the center can no longer hold.Even those stil with him more will still desert him and some will betray him.I never knew that Shekau is such a coward untill now.Look at him trying to save his own life instead of coming out to face challenges if he die then go to the heaven he indoctrinated his suicide bombers that they will go to.But the Fool(Shekau) seemed to be more at home in this world than heaven where he will be given 70 virgins for wives.Shekau you will remain a fugitve untill the expected happen to you.You will never be free or know peace.Of course hell fire is burning you right from here thats why you are always on the run..No one enjoys his life on the run.You started a war you can never win.As i am seeing your grave already.I wish you R.I.P.(Rest In Pieces).Even if the government grant you pardon the people of Borno and other Nigerians will not.As you can see Nigerians are all after you..

    • True my broda. The youths in Maiduguri are doing a good job by sanitizing the place and fishing out the BK boys. Shekau has lost the battle. He is only making an empty treat. We shall see light definitely at the end of a dark tunnel. It’s unfortune for him. He deceived many of this youths, but now the table is turned against him and his group. Allahhuakabar.
