The Nigerian Defence headquarters, DHQ, has said that Abubakar Shekau, the Boko Haram sect leader, may soon surrender.
DHQ clarified that Shekau’s body language, following the recent military offensive against the insurgents, indicated that Shekau would soon “throw in the towel.”
This was disclosed by Major General John Enenche, Directorate of Defense Media Operations, during a press conference yesterday in Abuja.
Enenche, emphasized that while there was no formal communication with Shekau, the terror leader’s body language indicated he was ready to surrender.
“If you talk about body language, the body language is there. If he makes any move in that regard, you will know, but from the onslaught from troops, they can’t hide anymore,” he said.
Recall that the Defence Headquarters had yesterday confirmed that several key Boko Haram terrorists/ISWAP leaders were killed in multiple airstrikes conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole at Durbada in Borno State.
