There are reports that the leader of the dreaded Boko Haram group Abubakar Shekau has been killed.

Shekau was reportedly killed by uspected members of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP).

According to the report, he was killed during a fierce battle between the rival groups in their Sambisa Forest hideouts on Wednesday, May 19.

Sources say hundreds of ISWAP fighters invaded Sambisa with heavy gun trucks during the week hunting for Shekau. It was revealed that Shekau committed suicide by blowing himself up with explosives when ISWAP fighters attempted to capture him alive.

Nigerian security forces are yet to officially react to the reported death of Africa’s most wanted terrorist.

A security report quoted states:


“Unconfirmed source reported that the leader of JAS Abubakar Shekau was dethroned and killed by ISWAP and they have taken over the entire sambisa forest.

“With this development, ISWAP are more equipped and funded than JAS. So their mode of operation will change, and there is likely going to experience frequent attacks around Konduga, Bama, Gwoza, Biu LGA’S and part of Adamawa.

“All humanitarians around the axis should be security conscious and be very vigilant.”
