Weeks after Boko Haram chief Abubakar Shekau took his personal life to keep away from seize by advancing ISWAP, the information has filtered out the captor himself has died.
Abu Musab Al-Barnawi was killed in navy assault within the final week of August, based on a report by the Each day Belief.
The loss of life is coming amidst the flood of the late Shekau’s followers in Boko Haram surrendering to the navy within the Operation Secure Hall.

A number of the Boko Haram fighters declared allegiance to Al Barnawi whom the fighters contemplate benign and gracious for concentrating on the navy and Christians solely—not like Shekau who killed Muslims, too.
