Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Lucky Irabor, has confirmed that Abubakar Shekau was brutally wounded and likely dead in a Sambisa Forest airstrike by Nigerian forces two weeks ago.
Irabor made the statement during a tour in Adamawa State today Thursday, September 1.
“I can confirm to you that the original Shekau was killed, the second Shekau was killed, and the man presenting himself as Shekau, I can also confirm to you that few days ago, he was wounded. We are yet to confirm whether he is dead or not.”
“They (Boko Haram) released videos to prove that they are still active, but that’s just a facade.”
