Una muy buena noticia, aunque no está confirmada y siempre hay que considerar la posibilidad de que el grupo terrorista en cuestión elija para sustituirle a alguien de quien no se sepa mucho:
The Joint Task Force (JTF) operating in Borno State, Monday said Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, may have died as a result of wounds sustained during an assault against the group a few weeks ago.
In a press statement today, spokesman of the JTF, Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said, “Intelligence report available to the Joint Task Force Operation Restore Order revealed that Abubakar Shekau, the most dreaded and wanted Boko Haram terrorists leader may have died.
“He died of gunshot wounds received in an encounter with the JTF troops in one of their camps at Sambisa Forest on 30 June 2013. Shekau was mortally wounded in the encounter and was sneaked into Amitchide – a border community in Cameroun for treatment which he never recovered from.
“It is greatly believed that Shekau might have died between 25 July to 3 August, 2013.”
