Breaking... Boko Haram leader, Shekau ‘dead’ after ISWAP attack

The leader of Boko Haram faction, Jama’tu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad (JAS), Abubakar Shekau, is reportedly dead.

On Thursday, Eons Intelligence reported that his demise followed an attack by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a splinter group.

ISWAP fighters, led by its commander, Bana Duguri, stormed the Sambisa hideout of Boko Haram.

Shekau was said to have blown himself to avoid being captured alive.

This is not the first news about the death of Shekau. If true, ISWAP will likely make an announcement in the coming days.

A source said that the Nigerian military and intelligence agencies are in touch with the development.
