Report has it that leader of Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau may have killed himself in a duel involving his group and a rival group, ISWAP.
ISWAP is a group that has been in the battle of supremacy with the Boko Haram in Sambisa forest.
It was said that he blew himself up because he doesn’t want to be captured alive by ISWAP.
Nigerians have however taken to their social media to react to this news, with some celebrating and others discarding it as untrue.
Meanwhile, Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele is being applauded for making a prophecy about Abubakar Shekau some months ago where he stated that his days are numbered.
Although, when Primate Ayodele made this prophecy, it was not taken serious but as it stands, this prophecy has come to pass with the news that Shekau has died.
Shekau has been one of those terrorizing Nigeria with his group, Boko Haram. The group has claimed responsibility for several bomb attacks, kidnapping, killings in Nigeria.
