Boko Haram Leader Shekau May Be An Escapee From A Psychiatric Hospital

Posted in: , ,

Earlier today, Abubakar Shekau, leader of Islamic militant group Boko Haram, appeared in a video where he claimed Boko Haram was responsible for the attacks on Baga in Borno State which some have said led to the death of up to 2000 people. Shekau said in his recorded speech;

"We indeed killed them, as our Lord instructed us in His Book. We will not stop. This is not much. You will see. I'm ready."

But many have asked, who is Shekau? Who is this man who has kept the Nigerian Army looking like fools as they report his death, only for him to "seemingly" resurrect and mock them in new videos? A new report suggests that Shekau, while very well educated in Islamic and legal studies, may also be mentally ill. Some sources say he escaped from a psychatric hospital where he was put following a psychotic break when his wife died in childbirth.
