Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has died.

According to Report, he died after surrendering to Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters, as he was said to have blown himself up on Wednesday after his base in the Sambisa forest in Borno State was raided by ISWAP insurgents.

It was gathered that they tracked Shekau to his stronghold and engaged his bodyguards in a gun battle before venturing to capture the Boko Haram leader after his bodyguards were subdued,and he surrendered and was asked to step down and order his group to declare their loyalty to ISWAP.

Apparently opposed to the idea, the Boko Haram leader was said to have blown himself up, killing some others around him in the process.
