The Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Lucky Irabor on Thursday insisted that leader of dreaded group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau is dead.
The Commander said this during a tour of Adamawa State as part of the formations under his command.
He said the individual originally identified as Shekau has been killed.
“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”.
He further said that the Army always make statements that are based on facts.
According to him, “They released videos to prove that they are still active, but that’s just a facade”
