Camerounian Troops Did Not Kill Boko Haram Leader in Nigeria -DHQ



The Nigerian military has debunked claims that Cameroun or any other neighbouring country was responsible for the killing of some terrorists in Nigeria last week.
A camerounian newspaper reported that it was cameounian troops that killed Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.Cameroon Concord reported on its website (cameroon-concord.com) that “In a rare public show by the Cameroon army, photos of the Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau were made public alongside a statement claiming he was killed during a cross border raid deep inside Nigeria by the Cameroon military. A Cameroon military source who spoke to Cameroon Concord late last night, revealed that Abubakar Shekau was killed following an aerial bombardment of his hideout inside Nigeria. The Cameroon army has ever since yesterday been in serious combat against thousands of Boko Haram fighters trying to enter Cameroon via Fotokol from Gambaral Ngala in Nigeria.”
But a tweet from the handle of Defence Headquarters said, “There was no raid whatsoever by Cameroon or any foreign forces in any part of Nigeria’s territory in pursuit of terrorists as claimed in some reports allegedly quoting Cameroon military authorities.
“All operations ongoing in the environs of Konduga and all associated border locations within the country are completely being undertaken by Nigerian troops.”
While the Nigerian military is yet to officially name some of the top terrorists killed in recent operations, more suspected insurgents have continued to surrender themselves to the troop.
Another set of 10 terrorists surrendered to troops at Kawuri yesterday. Military officials confirmed that those that have surrendered have been taken into custody for necessary security debriefing.(With reports by PRNigeria)
