News of ‘Killing’ Shekau for the Third Time is Worrisom – Shehu Sani
Northern-based human rights activist, Shehu Sani, has said he was shocked to see the news of the killing of Shekau make headlines, again.
The rights campaigner, who also doubles as the President of the Civil Rights Congress, said on Facebook that the development was worrisome as it was the “third time he (Shekau) was killed.”
He stated that he was expecting the insurgent group to release a statement denouncing or confirming the reported killing of its leader.
“The news of the killing of the Boko Haram leader is in the headlines again. This is the third time he was killed. It gives the nation a lot of relief but only if it’s true. In a war situation, it’s difficult to extract the truth from a misleading ‘morale, boosting statements.’
“However, if the report is true, the group will certainly make a statement and announce a new head and if it’s not true, they will also respond. This is what they did when their founder was exterminated in 2009,” Sani argued.
