Following the onslaught of the Chadian Forces on Boko Haram, there were claims leader of the terrorist group Abubakar Shekau, pleaded with his men not to retreat. Recent report have indicated the contrary, instead "He called on Chadians to revolt against the govt & said God will help his fighters."
The President of Chad republic, Idriss Dèby Itno, earned so much plaudits after he personally led an offensive against the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist. The insurgents had killed dozens of soldiers in Nigeria and around the LakeChad basin.
President Idriss was triggered by the loss of his men and he did not only vow to take the fight to the terrorist but he was spotted on the front-line, leading his some of his men to Nguimi, Niger Republic. Thankfully, the Chadian Forces decimated the insurgents heavily.
And according to Humangle, the leader of the dreaded sect, Abubakar Shekau, in a leaked audio questioned his men for retreating against the Chadian Forces. And several media house peddled the same report.
But according to Boko Haram expert Bularma Bukarti, Shakau never asked for his men not to retreat.
Boko Haram have been relentless in terrorizing the North Eastern part of Nigeria and it's neighbouring countries. Hopefully, this attack on them would have unsettled them as Nigeria and her neighbours continue to find ways to bring lasting peace to the people.
