Nigeria claims it killed Boko Haram leader in raid | Fox News

Nigeria’s military said Tuesday it believes an airstrike has “fatally wounded” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, but there was no way to confirm yet another claim of the death of Nigeria’s Islamic extremist leader.

A statement does not say how the military got the information but identifies other commanders as “confirmed dead” in an air raid on Friday.

Nigerian security forces have at least three times in the past declared that they have killed or fatally wounded Shekau, only to have him resurface in video and audio recordings.
