The Defence Headquarters, DHQ, has claimed that the leader of the terrorist group Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau may soon surrender as he cannot hide from his atrocities any longer.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Directorate of Defence Media Operations; Major General John Enenche, during a press briefing in Abuja on Monday, April 20.
Enenche stated that the body language of Shekau; following the military offensive on the insurgents lately, showed that he would soon “throw in the towel.”
“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.
The claim comes after the Defence Headquarters confirmed the killing of several key Boko Haram terrorists/ISWAP leaders; during multiple airstrikes conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole at Durbada in Borno State.
Enenche had noted that several structures belonging to the terrorists were also destroyed during the airstrike.
According to him, several fighter jets dispatched by the Air Task Force took turns in attacking the location; scoring accurate hits within the target area; which resulted in the death of some of the terrorists during the airstrike which took place on April, 17, following credible human intelligence.
