Good News? Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau, Probably Dead Of Gunshot Wounds – JTF

Abu ShekauIntelligence report available to the Joint Task Force, Operation Restore Order, in Maiduguri, Borno State has “revealed that Abubakur Shekau, the most dreaded and wanted Boko Haram Terrorists leader may have died”.

This was contained in a statement issued on Monday by JTF spokesperson, Lt-Col. Sagir Musa, who said Mr. Shekau “died of gunshot wound received in an encounter with the JTF troops in one of their camps at Sambisa Forest on 30 June 2013”

According to the statement, “Shekau was mortally wounded in the encounter and was sneaked into Amitchide – a border community in Cameroun for treatment which he never recovered.

“It is greatly believed that Shekau might have died between 25 July to 3 August, 2013. He was reported to have masterminded the kidnap of the seven French citizens and that of the elder statesman Alhaji (Dr) Shettima Ali Monguno in addition to many murders of Islamic clerics in Northern Nigeria.

“He was also responsible for bombings of many places of worship and public buildings including Police and United Nations Headquarters in Abuja,” the statement said.

On the recently released video on 13 August, 20013 by the purported sect leader, JTF said it was “dramatized by an imposter to hoodwink the sect members to continue with the terrorism and to deceive the undiscerning minds”.

“The JTF wishes to appeal to the sect members to lay down their arms and embrace the Federal Government’s offer for dialogue,” the statement added.
