The Nigeria Army says it is not in possession of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Lucky Irabor, commander of Operation Lafiya Dole said this while speaking at a press conference in Maiduguri, Borno state.

This dismissal is coming after several claims by the Army that Shekau had been killed.

Unconfirmed reports have it that that Shekau had been captured by some local hunters in the state.

Dismissing the report, the army chief said: “The military does not have Shekau in its possession and only read about the supposed capture in some media reports.

“I also heard about it that some local hunters reportedly captured Shekau and I said, okay, when they bring him, we’ll see him,” he noted.

Meanwhile, Shekau, who appeared in a video weeks after the Nigerian Army said he is gravely wounded in a military air strikes says he is in good health.
