The Nigeria’s Army authorities have sent out an alert that factional Boko Haram leader, ABUBAKAR SHEKAU is on the run, dressed as a woman.
The Director Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman, who disclosed this in a statement, said Shekau could no longer bear the heat and had abandoned his followers.
The statement said in a desperate effort to escape from the Theatre of Operation, Abubakar Shekau is disguised as a woman and dressed in Hijab.
According to the Army, the Boko Haram leader alternates between blue and black coloured hijabs to avoid detection and he was last seen in a black hijab.
The army assured Nigerians that concerted efforts are ongoing to arrest the fugitive terrorist leader and appealed to members of the public, especially residents of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states to be more vigilant, security conscious and be on the lookout for Abubakar Shekau and other terrorists that might disguise as women to escape.
