Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, is dead, HumAngle is reporting.
.
.
According to the report, Shekau died on Wednesday evening, May 19, 2021, when Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters invaded the terror group’s stronghold in Sambisa forest.
.
.
ISWAP, which had broken away from the Shekau-led Boko Haram faction in 2016 after pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS), raided the group’s hideout using multiple gun trucks.
.
.
According to HumAngle, Shekau’s enclave was tracked down by ISWAP using its forces based in the Timbuktu Triangle. His fighters were killed in the process, followed by a long gunfire exchange between the invading group and Shekau’s bodyguards.
.
.
It was gathered that after his bodyguards were subdued, Shekau surrendered and engaged in an hours-long meeting with the ISWAP fighters. During the parley, he was asked to voluntarily relinquish power and order his fighters in other areas to declare bai’a (allegiance) to ISWAP’s authority.
.
.
They had expected Shekau to issue a statement. However, Shekau who secretly had a suicide vest on, eventually blew himself up alongside everyone present during the negotiations.
