The Boko Haram leader, Shekau Abubakar, has been making frantic efforts to seek a soft landing as he prepares to surrender.
This information was gathered from top intelligence sources in the Theatre of Operations in North-East Nigeria.
According to a source who pleaded anonymity, he stated that Abubakar Shekau is desperately looking for an avenue to surrender.
“ I think the end of Boko Haram is coming close as Shekau has been making overtures through proxies for a soft landing for him to surrender to the Nigerian authorities.
He has been desperate about it, and the intensity is occasioned with the avalanche of coordinated operations launched in recent times against the group, especially in the Timbuktu triangle”.
“The Chief of Army Staff has given an order that Abubakar Shekau is captured alive. The Chief has been in Borno State and there is a likelihood that he is going to be around for a long period given his body language of not leaving anything to chance in this critical operation.
As a fact, he has joined several reconnaissance operations around the Timbuktu triangle, after which he issued specific directives with the Intel gathered from the reconnaissance operations.”
“He has also been in the trenches with some commanders holding meetings and analyzing Intel. I can tell you that everyone is on top of their game as the strategy is clear for all to understand.”
