Embattled Boko Haram Leader Abubakar Shekau Returns To Nigeria From Mali

There are strong indications today in Abuja, that the leader of the Boko Haram Islamic sect, Imam Abubakar Shekau has returned to Nigeria via Niger Republic borders.
The embattled Boko Haram leader was wounded during a gun battle with Nigerian security men recently before fleeing to Mali for treatment.

Sources said in Abuja that security agencies traced the whereabouts of Shekau, who succeeded late Mohammed Yusuf as leader of the sect to Mali, where he escaped to after sustaining injuries during a gun duel with soldiers of the Joint Task Force, JTF, a.k.a Operation Restore Order.

Shekau was said to have been shot at a checkpoint when he reportedly attempted to deceive operatives of the JTF by posing as a nomadic Fulani who was returning from a journey. 

However, on approach of the vehicle conveying him and members of his sect, ‘’a hot exchange of gunfire ensued as the sect members started firing at the soldiers who equally returned fire for fire.’’

During the crossfire, he and two other sect members with him escaped with gunshot wounds while two members of the sect were killed on the spot. Some AK 47 rifles were recovered from the vehicle.
