More Boko Haram terrorists surrender as speculation over Shekau’s death thickens

The Nigerian military said on Monday that it has subdued more members of the extremist Boko Haram sect.

The Defence Headquarters, DHQ, on Monday in a tweet said 10 terrorists surrendered to some troops at Kawuri village in Borno State.

The terrorists are being held by the military for necessary security briefing, the DHQ said.

“Another Set of 10 Terrorists yesterday surrendered to Troops at #Kawuri. In custody for necessary security debriefing #VictoryforNigeria,” the military said.

Five members of the group had earlier surrendered to massive onslaught by troops in Konduga community, according to the DHQ. The military said the insurgents had also pleaded for mercy while surrendering their weapons.

The DHQ also said there was no raid in any part of Nigeria as widely reported by some Cameroonian soldiers.

The DHQ said all operations in Konduga, its environs and all border locations within Nigeria are handled by Nigerian troops.

Shekau dead again?

There are reports that Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Boko Haram sect has been killed.

But this is not the first time security operatives in Nigeria have made that claim. Every time the Nigerian security claims he is dead, Mr. Shekau emerges in videos denying he had been killed.

However, the SSS, on May 12, through its spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, insisted that the man in the videos released by the sect was not the real Mr. Shekau.

“Boko Haram has become a franchise, anybody can assume and lay claim to any name. What I know is that the original Abubakar Shekau is dead; the person claiming to be the national leader now is not the original Abubakar Shekau.”

Security sources are now saying that the man impersonating the late Mr. Shekau has now been killed.

But the military is yet to officially confirm his death.

PREMIUM TIMES has also not been able to independently verify if Mr. Shekau is truly dead.

    The Nigeia intelligence people are trying to be half smart by claiming there a two Shekaus,the Shekau who has been appearing in the terrorist group’s videos is the same Shekau the world has always known,the Nigerian government should stop lying and start working to find him

    • Zarto Ali

      No matter the situation, the current unfolding events are quite encouraging. i think the Nigerian army should be encourage for maximum output.

    If it is confirmed that Shakau has been killed,then Jonathan should count on my wife’s vote.but as for mine,he will only get it if he arrests and begins the persecution of SAS (for his links to BH),Orisejafo (for connivance in the cash in jet for arms deal) and TB Joshua (manslaughter) and the chief priest of their dreded ombatse group (for murdering our security men).He should then sack Dezeani,Doyin and Abati.appoint Ribadu FCT minister and declear a total state of emergency in Bornu,yobe and adamawa state. Finally he should get (anyhow or way)those innocent chibok girls back to their parents.

    Imam dey kampe, no shaking. The Islamic Caliphate of Arewa must be achieved, in spite of any propaganda to demoralize the Islamists. All they are asking for is to leave their 12 sharia states for them. Allah ya yi zamani Imam.

    The sponsors are now known but the government is shielding them because they are part and parcel of the government. However, Nigerians especially those affected by the activities of boko haram should thank the Australian as the exposure has push the sponsors to stop what they have been doing. It has also been clear the government irresponsiblity has been exposed and boko haram created deliberately to stop election cannot continue.

    Another LIES for Yariba slaves, almajiris, Islamists, and nitwits. There is no mention of 2010 AMENDED INEC ACT. What does the 2010 INEC ACT say? NO INFORMATION. YET THAT IS WHAT SHOULD SHOW THE BASIS FOR APPOINTING INEC CHAIR

    • Wale

      Rag tag follower; why not post the 2010 AMENDED INEC ACT here for all to see and reach a balance conclusion.

      • Tempo

        yes ooo, you are definitely a Yariba slave, almajiri, Islamist, nitwit , or all/some of the above; it shows by the way you chosen to harass the messenger. An average person would find out why THE APC writer or APPOINTMENT-SEEKING WRITER has omitted the AMENDED 2010 ACT.

        LIES are drugs/opium of Yariba slaves, almajiris, Islamists, and nitwits. It makes them feel HIGH whenever such LIES & HALF-TRUTHS are manufactured by lazy semi-literates parading as opinion writers & experts. ONLY IN NIGERIA WOULD THESE DAFTS be allowed to practice with such scandalous write-ups and utterances that come from them.

        So enjoy your evening DOSE of LIES for without you could lose control or your bearing. FOR YOUR INFORMATION SOMEONE SOMEWHERE IS ENSURING THAT YOUR DOSES OF LIES ARE DELIVERED. SO DO NOT PANICK.
