We Will Arrest Shekau As Soon As Possible - Minister of Defence

Minister of Defence Mansur Dan-Ali has said Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau who is on the run, will soon be arrested.

Speaking with State House correspondents yesterday after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, he said

 “I believe it’s just a matter of time. It took America about seven to 10 years to get Osama bin Laden. So, we will get  Shekau as soon as possible.
“I told you before now, the spiritual headquarters has been ransacked and vandalised. He (Shekau) is on the run. So, he may be hiding in one of the enclaves of Sambisa forest, which we are dominating.

“We have opened up the place. We are using the place as a training area, whereby army engineers will open roads. We shall be patrolling and ransacking that forest for Shekau.”

Reminded that several reports had claimed that Shekau had been killed, he said:
“Let me tell you categorically. These insurgents, they have a way of putting masks. There could be so many, but we are looking for the real one.
“He has been using masks to portray Shekau in one incident or the other to give an impression that he has been killed so that we will relax, but we will not relax; we are on his trail.”
