Nigerian security authorities are currently  investigating the Cameroonian army’s claims that they have killed Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

The army is said to have posted a photograph purported to show Shekau’s corpse on social media, The Times  reports.

Shekau is said to have been killed during a battle between Cameroon’s troops and the insurgents in the border region of Gambaru.

There are no official reports confirming whether Shekau is indeed dead.


Sources from the Nigerian military have reportedly stated that the person killed by the Cameroonian army was not hekau.

According to Sahara Reporters the person killed was Bashir Mohammed, leader of Boko Haram’s Uye camp.

Authorities also allege that it was Nigerian soldiers, and not the Cameroonian military that killed Mohammed.

      You still under estimate the Cameroonian army and his secret service. Even after what those guys showed to comparison to the Nigerian. People continue to support the incompetents.

      What glory are you talking about? A small armed group manage to destabilise and present the real level of Nigerian arm force. And you talk about looking for glory. Nigerian needs help, just be humble and accept help from “tiny cameroon”. They had my credit since bakassi anyway.

    How many times will the Nigerian Army claim to kill Shekau? How many times will Shekau die? I don’t believe the terrorist is killed.

    Boko Haram is a typical nigerian political group on political mission. umpteem times david had the opportunity to destroy saul but would not, saying, he is the lord’s anointed. there4, it would only have taken a strange figure in that ball game to do the scoring. if the lord could use small boy like david to kill goliath where saul & his military couldn’t, why doubt cameroon. after all they have been doing what others could not do.

    Did cameroun get bakasi by was an exchange from the top the top. Between nigeria and the french, which by the way are the onesthat helped you fight the bakasi war and not cameroun.camerounians are not the ones governing themselve but the cannot decide in your country without consulting them .meaning, you are still under colonial rule till date.with your totalitarian regime in place, I do not think you should be saying anything cos you don not have opinion of yourselves.when you are free then you can talk to nigerians, who by the way stands not only to loose , by boko haram , but also cameroun

    Camerounian are hlping theselves while indirectly helping nigeria.if you do nothing, and boko haram grows on your soil, well you know what tne answer will be , so lets mellow and do not have big mouth I said , take care of your life president and then we can did not kill the impostor , nigerian army as poorly equiped as they are did that , so the lie.nigerians still appreciate the fact that you are fighting alng side them but , do not push it by being arrogant.humility is tne ultimate answer here

    That person the cameroon soldiers killed was actually Bashir Mohammed but what if cameroon soldiers did kill Shakau(senior boko haram leader), is that not good? Why are africans like this? In Europe or America people bring gift to anyone who kills a terrorist but in Africa, people attack or insult anyone that kill a terrorist, this is very wrong. If Cameroon soldiers are able to kill shakau it means they have improvement, let Nigerians improve their soldiers too. I must let you understand that boko haram have more network, background and sponsores in Nigeria than it is in Cameroon. Not only that, some of Nigerian soldiers are boko haram but none of Cameroon soldiers is boko haram. Let africans learn from other continent like Europe and America. DO NOT CRITICISE anyone who gained victory, rather appreciate their success; it is for your own good. From your beloved francis(nigeria).

    The dead body of shekau is in Nigeria not in Cameroon,go watch the video yourself. It is reported that Cameroon soldier did not claim to have killed shekau and did not post any image for the claim,it is a false news.

    You should accept the fact that the Cameroon ARMY is more superior.They have been protecting their president snce 1982 til date.This means that they are loyal to their country and can do anything for the country.They are more united and stronger,lets appreciate their victory.
