Happenings

According to a military source, the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau is nowhere to be found.

The source stated on Thursday, April 23, 2015, that the military had been on the lookout for the terrorist boss since operations against the sect began but could not locate him, according to Vanguard.

“The guy simply disappeared from the radar and suddenly vanished. We wish we can catch him alive,” the source said.

The Boko Haram leader was last seen in a video released in March where he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist sect.

Meanwhile, Nigerian soldiers were recently forced to retreat from Sambisa Forest, the last remaining Boko Haram stronghold, following a landmine explosion in the area.
