The leader of Bokoharam Abubakar Shekau could be looking to reach an agreement with the Federal governement as he plans on dropping arms.
The Islamic terrorist group have been terrorizing the Nothern part of the country for eight years. They have been the biggest nightmare of the Nigerian governement over the years.
Boko haram, founded in 2002 by Mohammed Yusuf is a terrorist group which has claimed so many lives within the country. Shekau claimed the number position and the leader of the sect following Mohammed Yusuf’s execution by the Nigerian army in 2009. On taking on leadership, Shekau pioneered so many suicide bombings within the country claiming lives and properties.
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Vanguard reports that the terrorist group and its leader Abubakar Shekau are planning on dropping arms. The report claimed an insider who pleaded anonymity said the Nigerian army is closing in on the terrorist organization and they are looking at sundering to the federal govement of Nigeria.
According to the insider, “I think the end of Boko Haram is coming close as Abubakar Shekau has been making overtures through proxies for a soft landing for him to surrender to the Nigerian authorities. He has been desperate about it, and the intensity is occasioned with the avalanche of coordinated operations launched in recent times against the group, especially in the Timbuktu triangle”.
“The gap is closing in on Abubakar Shekau as it stands. The series of coordinated attacks on their hideouts has made it impossible for any escape as the military has been attacking from several flanks, and any attempt to escape now is virtually impossible.”
“The Chief of Army Staff has given an order that Abubakar Shekau is captured alive. The Chief has been in Borno State and there is a likelihood that he is going to be around for a long period given his body language of not leaving anything to chance in this critical operation. As a fact, he has joined several reconnaissance operations around the Timbuktu triangle, after which he issued specific directives with the Intel gathered from the reconnaissance operations”, he added.
