Abubakar Shekau, the dreaded scoundrel of Boko Haram, who has become synonymous with terror in West African countries, has been killed in a clash with his rival faction The Islamic State West African Province. The Islamic State confirmed
The leader of the Islamic State West African Province, Abu Musab al-Barnawi, confirmed the death of the Boko Haram commander in an audio message. He said, ‘Abubakar Shekau God sent him to heaven and did justice to him.’ A Nigerian intelligence report and people doing research on Boko Haram have confirmed the death of Abubakar. Earlier last month, the Nigerian military said it was investigating Shekau’s alleged death.
The Islamic State is now tightening its grip on Lake Chad
It is being told that Abubakar was killed during the conflict in the Lake Chad area and his opposition faction has also now confirmed this. Bulama Bukarti, who researches Boko Haram, said the Islamic State is now tightening its grip on the entire area in Lake Chad, once considered a Boko Haram stronghold. The Islamic State has long wanted to remove Abubakar.
It is believed that after the death of Abubakar, now the violent competition between both the factions may end. Political analysts say that now the people of Boko Haram will join the Islamic State and further strengthen their hold in Northeast Nigeria. Now the Islamic State can intensify its attacks on the government and its army. In the last 12 years, there were several reports that the commander of Boko Haram had been killed, but this time his death was confirmed.
No one is ready to give any testimony against terrorists.
Boko Haram first came into the limelight in the year 2014. This year he kidnapped 270 school girls. Since then, he has kidnapped children many times. The fear of Boko Haram is such in Nigeria that no one is ready to testify against its terrorists. This organization was established to establish a government that obeys Sharia law in Nigeria. This terrorist organization has not only killed a large number of people in Nigeria, but has also carried out many deadly attacks on the security forces. Kidnappings, killings of people and attacks on military bases by Boko Haram militants in the region continues.
