In his words, “I can confirm to you that the original Shekau was killed, the second Shekau was killed, and the man presenting himself as Shekau, I can also confirm to you that few days ago, he was wounded. We are yet to confirm whether he is dead or not.They released videos to prove that they are still active, but that’s just a facade.” . According to Irabor, the Army does not make statements that are not based on facts.
