Hon. Mohammed Monguno, representing Jere Federal Constituency of Borno State in the House of Representatives, has revealed that Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau lived in his house in Borno.

While disclosing this in an exclusive interview with The Vanguard, The Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture speaks on the raging insurgency in his home state and the killing of scores of soldiers by the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

According to him,” the coming of Boko Haram changed altered the relative peace that has been in existence in Borno and Maiduguri states as a result of suicide attacks, attacks on villages, killing and maiming of people, and residents relocating to IDP camps and some to neighbouring countries to become refugees with the attendant and concomitant effects of losing their source of livelihood becoming the order of the day”.

“Before 2015, about two thirds of the local governments in Borno were under the firm grip of Boko Haram; even my house in Borno was one of their operational headquarters, effectively occupied by one of the leaders”.

Asked if he was referring to Shekau, Monguno answered in affirmative.

“Yes, Shekau! When he was in Borno, he stayed in my house.

I never saw or met him personally. I don’t know the kind of person he is. But he and his fellow terrorists occupied my house when they took over Monguno before they were flushed out by the military after Monguno was liberated”, he added.
