Boko Haram terrorist group appears to be in disarray following the reported death, in battle, of the leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Quoting fleeing residents of Konduga, Borno State, News Express had this morning reported the news making the rounds in Maiduguri, the state capital, of the dreaded terrorist leader.

The reputable news service PRNigeria lent credence to the report when it said in a statement: “Nigerian troops might have scored a strategic victory in the current battle against terrorists operating in the North East on September 17. During a desperate attempt to capture Konduga in their delusion to eventually marching on and capturing Maiduguri, the man who had been mimicking late Abubakar Shekau in recent videos might have been finally killed.”

PRNigeria quoted senior military and intelligence sources as saying: “It is getting more certain that the terrorists’ commander who has been mimicking Shekau in those videos is the one killed in Konduga on September 17, 2014.”

The sources said the suspected demise of the Boko Haram leader is responsible for the scattering of the sect members in different independent locations in the neighbouring countries, especially in Cameroon noticed in recent days.

The security sources did not deny the suspicion but cautioned that “the process of confirming that the dead body we have is the same as that character who has been posing as Shekau is ongoing. He is definitely a prominent terrorist commander. I don’t want to say anything about this yet please.”

Another high ranking military source quoted by PRNigeria insisted that the resemblance is too striking to be a coincidence. The source cited Shekau’s facial marks, beards and teeth apart from the recovery by the Nigerian troops of some of the Armoured Vehicles and Hilux jeeps that had featured in previous videos of the prime suspect.

The officers assured that the Defence Headquarters would soon address the nation after full investigation of their latest discovery.
