Metro Journalist Close to Boko Haram Says: "Abubakar Shekau is Alive and Well" - SaharaReporters


Social Member
A Dubai-based Nigerian journalist, Ahmed Salkida who reportedly has established communications with some leaders of the Boko Haram terrorist group has claimed that the sect's leader, Abubakar Shekau, is 'alive and well', SaharaReporters is reporting.

Mr. Salkida has rebutted the reports going round that Nigerian troops have killed the fiendish Shekau, the face and voice behind the videos released by the terrorists.

Below is Mr. Salkida's tweet and a Sahara Reporters' excerpt:

"Earlier today, SaharaReporters had published a report to the effect that a Nigerian intelligence source revealed that the person whose dead body is seen in photos circulating in news reports was not Shekau but one “Mohammed Bashir”.

Our intelligence source stated that the dead Islamist figure, who bore a striking semblance to Mr. Shekau, was indeed a look-alike who appeared in videos released by the Islamist sect.

Mr. Salkida’s tweet appeared to confirm that the Boko Haram “officer” killed by Nigerian soldiers in Konduga was a different person from Mr. Shekau. In fact, Nigerian security officials have maintained for months that Mr. Shekau was dead, apparently killed by his own disaffected lieutenants in an internal rivalry for control of the terrorist organization."
