Boko Haram Leader, Shekau’s Quran Recovered From Sambisa Forest

By Ikenga Chronicles December 29, 2016

The holy Qur’an and the flag of the Leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau have been recovered from the dreaded Sambisa Forest, the military said.

The Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, said this  on Wednesday while giving journalists update on “Operation Rescue Final’’ in Maiduguri.

“We believe that the Holy Book and the flag were abandoned by Abubakar Shekau while he escaped.

“The Book will be taken to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Burutai, for onward presentation to Mr. President.”

“We have also made a lot of arrests. Our troops in Damboa arrested about 15 Boko Haram members. We also arrested one Musa from Potiskum on Christmas Day.”

“On December 26 our troops also intercepted two Boko Haram suspects in Maiduguri.”

“We therefore, warn residents of the state to be wary of people coming to hide in and around their houses.”

“We are also warning residents to report any suspected Boko Haram members hiding in their houses to the relevant security agencies and any failure to do that would tantamount to supporting and sympathising with the sect’s activities.”
