The leader of ‘Boko Haram’ – Abubakar Shekau
While he was respected as a leader in the beginning, by 2011 shekau began to show signs of religious extremism. He received a letter from al-Qaeda in Maghreb Islam giving advice. But he didn’t listen to it
As a result of his erratic leadership in 2012, the parties broke into the image of Jamaat Ansar al-Muslimin fi Bilād as-Sudan (Ansaru).
This group includes his commander, Abu Muhammad al-Bauchawi and religious adviser Sheikh Abu Osama al-Ansari Muhammad Awal al-Gombawi.
Despite this, many of the soldiers and commanders were with Shekau, including the commanders of Abu Sa’ad al-Bamawi and Muhammad Salafi, with his group being mostly harmless. Shekau was engaged to Ansaru to kill their leader, Abu Osama. al-ansari
As a result of this and the arrest of other Ansaru leaders by the Nigerian government, Ansaru did not pose a threat to Shekau’s leadership towards the jihad movement in Nigeria and the group died in 2015.
After this, Shekau’s soldiers did not discipline and attack the population, resulting in the establishment of civilian armed forces, such as joint civilian forces to fight against them.Shekau became increasingly insane, beginning to kill the consultants. His own religions include Sheikh Abd al-Malek al-Ansari al-Kadunawi and Abu al-Abbas al-Bankiwani.
In June 2012, the US State Department designated Shekau to be a terrorist and freeze his property in the United States. Since June 2013, the department has awarded US $ 7 million for information leading to the arrest of the Chechers through a reward program for justice.
In addition, the Nigerian military awarded Shekker with an award of 50 million yen (about US $ 300,000).
This has been circulating for days, but the explanation is false. Nowhere in this audio did Shekau plead with his fighters not to run away.
On the contrary, he called on Chadians to revolt against the govt & said God will help his fighters. Stop the disinformation. Get experts! https://t.co/95YrnMUKTw
