Nigerian Army Kills Two Deputies To Boko Haram Leader, Shekau | The Precision

Two Boko Haram commanders and deputies to Abubakar Shekau, a
factional leader of the terror group, were killed in successful military
operations at Alafa in Borno on Sallah day, an official has said.


The Army spokesman, Sani Usman, said in a statement on Tuesday that
the deputies that were killed in the onslaught included Afdu Kawuri and
Abubakar Banishek.
“This is in addition to Ba’Abba Ibrahim and two other Boko Haram
commanders that died after sustaining injuries during their last ambush
at Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno,” he added.
He said five other key leaders of the group and close associates of Mr. Shekau were neutralised in joint bombardment in August.
Mr. Usman described Mr. Shekau’s latest video in which he taunted the
army as an act of desperation and lies by remnants of the insurgents to instill unnecessary fear in law abiding citizens.
In the video, the group denied the killing of its five key commanders
and claimed it had wonderful Sallah celebration in the Sambisa forest.
“We wish to challenge the so-called terrorist leader to produce the
five key commanders earlier killed or the video of those Ameers he
claimed not dead and are still with him.
“It is also instructive to note that Shekau is scared and rattled by
the 40-day ultimatum issued by the Chief of Army Staff to Operation
LAFIYA DOLE to fish him out,” Mr. Usman, a brigadier general, said.
