Boko Haram Leader Shekau Was Not The One Killed...Bashir Mohammed Was Killed By Nigeria Army


The above photo was upload on a Cameroon website claiming that it was the famous Boko Haram leader Shekau Abubakar that was killed during a gun battle with Cameroonian army in Cameroon.
Meanwhile SaharaReporters have investigated into the matter and found that the photo of the alleged Shekau was that of one Bashir Mohammed, leader of the Islamist sect’s Uye camp.
                      
According to SaharaReporters, a Nigerian military intelligence source said that Nigerian soldiers, not Cameroonian troops, had killed Mr. Bashir last Friday in a fierce battle against Boko Haram insurgents in Konduga, Borno State. The late Mr. Bashir, who bore a striking resemblance to Abubakar Shekau and had appeared in a recent video, was killed as he led insurgents who were attempting to capture Konduga and then made a bid to seize Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, as well.
Nigerian soldiers routed the Islamist militants in Konduga, killing hundreds of them and capturing weapons as well as vehicles abandoned by fleeing insurgents.
The military as well as Nigerian government-appointed negotiators claim that the original Mr. Shekau had died since last year, reportedly assassinated by his lieutenants.
 The intelligence source said Mr. Bashir had adopted Mr. Shekau’s nom deguere and had been the person responsible for issuing video messages in recent times.
 Even though our source said the military was cautious not to claim credit for Mr. “Shekau’s” death, he added that the Nigerian military was buoyed by the capture of the armored tank usually displayed in the background of recent videos issued by the sect’s spokesman.
