President of Chad, Idriss Deby on Wednesday stated that he knows the whereabouts of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, and has urged him to surrender or face death.

Deby revealed the news during a conference in N’djamena, Punch reports.

“Abubakar Shekau must surrender. We know where he is. If he doesn’t give himself up he will suffer the same fate as his compatriots,” he said. He (Shekau) was in Dikwa (in Borno State) two days ago. He managed to get away but we know where he is. It’s in his interests to surrender,” he said.

    Interesting, NA need to work closely with our allies. It’s a collective case.
    Besides BN, you are not publishing my comment. I spill out the mind of millions and fear no body.

    Abeg, Bikonu, kill him for us. Cos most likely, he wont get justice in Nigeria, they will either set him free or keep him in “awaiting trial” forever and ever.
    But if you manage to capture him alive, abeg you in the name of whatever you believe him, dont release him to Nigerian Government under Jona, cos nothing will get done.

    At this point, i am more confident in the Chadian troop than the Nigerian army.

    Talk is cheap mr president. Go get him (dead or alive) if you know where he is. I am beginning to think the Nigerian way of boastful talking has robbed on this Chadian president. A word of advice for you mr Chadian president, stop all this braggadocio talk we’ve heard all this before from our Nigerian president and some of his service chiefs. What was the outcome of all that big man talk? NOTHING, ZILCH, NADA. We are tired and sick of all this your talk, talk, and talk and no action. Why don’t you Shot the f- up, talk to us when you ‘ve captured or killied Shekau period. A word is enough for the wise. I’ m just saying.

      Not just talking talking. Not just bravado… The guy has “balls”. His troops already did it to the Algerian jihads ring leader in North Mali. Why can’t they do the poltroon Shekau? Think Chadian troops are pot-bellied and yellow bellied Nigerian pistoleros?

      There’s definitely been A LOT of incompetence on the Nigerian side, but let’s not pretend that neighbours that allowed BH to regroup on and smuggle in weapons through their territory as long as the violence was on the Nigerian side of the border are blameless. As far as I know this rebuke applies to Cameroon in particular.

      If you choose to stand by and watch your neighbour’s house burn, don’t expect to be applauded for responding when the fire spreads to your home.

    Boko Haram could have been wiped out long ago, they have become a political tool.
    They are not as organized or sophisticated as other Islamist groups. Their hide-outs were known, they moved in convoys, they bought food, fuel, weapons, etc. These guys could have been taken out long ago and the lives of thousands of innocent men, women and children would have been spared. But no, it suited the agenda of the powers that be, to keep them going, turn a blind eye and allow them to proliferate. Now, suddenly, they know where Shekau is, as though he wasn’t hiding in plain sight all along!

    The blood of the dead is crying for justice and they will be heard. God’s hand is on this one. Enough is Enough!
