Cameroonian military say they have killed Shekau and they have a picture to back their claim

by Isi Esene

The Cameroonian military has released photos of a man believed to be the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

According to a news website, Cameroon Concord, the man who parades himself as Abubakar Shekau was killed during a cross border raid inside Nigeria.


Here’s what they had to say about it.

In a rare public show by the Cameroonian Army, photos of the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau were made public alongside a statement claiming he was killed during a cross border raid deep inside Nigeria by the Cameroon military.

A Cameroonian military source who spoke to Cameroon Concord late last night, revealed that Abubakar Shekau was killed following an aerial bombardment of his hideout inside Nigeria.

The Cameroon army has ever since yesterday been in serious combat against thousands of Boko Haram fighters trying to enter Cameroon via Fotokol from Gambaral Ngala in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian military also claims to have killed the same man during a fight in Konduga, Borno State.

According to a military source, “It is getting more certain that the terrorist’s commander, who has been mimicking Shekau in previous videos, is the one killed at Konduga, on September 17th, as massive relocation of terrorists to seek safe haven in independent locations in Cameroon has been noticed.”

This will not be the first time that Shekau has “been killed”. Officials first believed he had been killed in clashes between the military and Boko Haram militants in 2009. The massive security crackdown followed the July 2009 Boko Haram attacks on police stations in Borno state. Shortly after the attacks, the military succeeded in storming the group’s mosque and school complex in Maiduguri, and capturing Mohammed Yusuf, the group’s then charismatic leader.

However, in a videotaped interview in 2010, which proved that he was still alive, Shekau said he had been shot in the thigh during the fighting with security troops but was rescued by “fellow believers and protected by Allah”.

Two years ago, security officials again thought they had killed him. But he re-emerged shortly after in a video mocking the attempts on his life and threatening the Nigerian state.

  12. This to me appears to be the man who always claims to be Abubakar Shekau. This is the sad end of “those who fight with the sword shall die by the sword” according to Jesus Christ. Sad that Shekau and people so decieved by Satan like him will not believe Christ till they fall victims of His predictions and die in their sin and afterwards suffer in hell as a just punishment for them from the Living God who is blessed forever.

  13. Cameroon army did it. They have picture

    Nigeria just 419ers. As usual sorry country
