The Nigerian military said on Monday that it has subdued more members of the extremist Boko Haram sect.
The Defence Headquarters, DHQ, on Monday on Twitter said 10 terrorists surrendered to some troops at Kawuri village in Borno State.
The terrorists are being held by the military for necessary security briefing, the DHQ said.
“Another Set of 10 Terrorists yesterday surrendered to Troops at #Kawuri. In custody for necessary security debriefing #VictoryforNigeria,” the military said.
The DHQ also denied the assertion that there was a raid in some parts of the country by the Cameroon Army affirming that all operations were being handled by the Nigerian troops.
Meanwhile, the report that Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Boko Haram sect has been killed continues to develop. However, this is not the first time claims of Shekau’s death will be made.
However, the SSS, on May 12, through its spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, insisted that the man in the videos released by the sect was not the real Mr. Shekau.
“Boko Haram has become a franchise, anybody can assume and lay claim to any name. What I know is that the original Abubakar Shekau is dead; the person claiming to be the national leader now is not the original Abubakar Shekau.”
Security sources are now saying that the man impersonating the late Mr. Shekau has now been killed.
But the military is yet to officially confirm his death.
