0
The Nigerian military today has issued an official
confirmation to reports that Abubakar Shekau, the eccentric leader of Boko
Haram has truly been killed. Officially, the military insists the real Mr. Shekau
was killed by soldiers more than a year ago, but that his character had been
assumed by another leader of the deadly group.
The impersonator is the man who appeared in several Boko
Haram propaganda videos, claiming he is Mr. Shekau, the military said.

It was that new face of Mr. Shekau also known as Mohammed
Bashir that was killed in a fierce clash with the military last week in
Konduga, near Maiduguri, Borno State, defence spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, said
today.
Meanwhile the military also revealed that, 135 terrorists yesterday
evening surrendered along with equipment to troops around Biu Local Government
Area.

A group of 88 submitted themselves at Mairiga/Bun – Yadi
while another group of 45 terrorists were taken in around Mubi – Michika. They
are all being interrogated, the statement said.
