WorldStage Newsonline-- Nigerian Army has revealed that  the Boko Haram terrorists leader, Abubakar Shekau may have abandoned his followers while running for his dear life could not bear the heat anymore as the concerted efforts of troops of Operation Lafiya Dole clear the terrorists through Operation Deep Punch II is heating up.

According to a statement by Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, Director Army Public Relations, Shekau is desperately trying to escape the theatre disguised as a woman dressed in Hijab.

“We reliably gathered that to avoid detection Abubakar Shekau alternates between blue and black coloured hijabs.. He was last seen in a black hijab,” the statement said.

It said troops had successfully been clearing Boko Haram camps in Sambisa forest including Camp Zairo.

“They have also rescued civilians being held hostages by the terrorists, recovered arms, ammunition, Improvised Explosives Devices (IED) factories and making materials as well as  other equipment. Consequently, the terrorists are in disarray and scampering for safety while others were surrendering,” it said.

“Credible information from arrested and surrendered insurgents indicated that the purported Boko Haram terrorists group factional leader, Abubakar Shekau could not bear the heat anymore as he has abandoned his followers, he is running for his dear life.

“He is desperately trying to escape the theatre disguised as a woman dressed in Hijab. We reliably gathered that to avoid detection Abubakar Shekau alternates between blue and black coloured hijabs. He was last seen in a black hijab.

“We therefore call on all those remaining Boko Haram terrorists to know that they are following a coward moving about in hijab disguised as a woman. We also request all the remaining Boko Haram members to come out from hiding and lay down their arms and be treated humanely.

“While concerted efforts are ongoing to track and apprehend the fugitive terrorist leader, we implore also members of the public, especially the residents of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States  to be more vigilant,  security conscious and be on the lookout of Abubakar Shekau and other terrorists that might disguise as women to escape.”
