The death of Boko Haram’s strongman, Abubakar Shekau is still an element of doubt to some Nigerians and other national bodies. This is because there is no solid evidence (like his corpse) to show the reality of the matter. However, the commander of the Islamic Western African Province (ISWAP) had confirmed that the embattled Boko Haram leader is no more.
The information and Confirmation of the incident was passed out by The Jama’atu Ahlussunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad (JAS) faction of Boko Haram on the 14th of June and it was fine through a video. Bakura Sahalaba, one of the members of the terrorist sect admitted the death of the leader while speaking with Arabic in the video.
In addition, Audu Bulama Bukarti, who is a researcher on extremist groups in Sub-Saharan Africa and a senior analyst has revealed that Shekau is dead.
He said that the speaker of Boko Haram “Bakura Sahalaba” prayed for God to have mercy on Shekau and also urged his brothers-in-arms not to give up because of what happened recently.

Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Akure, Adewale Giwa has come after some religious leaders who supported President Muhammadu Buhari’s election in 2015 and 2019, saying God will hold them responsible for the current woes of the country.
The cleric who invoked curses upon the enemies of good people of Nigeria while addressing his members on Sunday, noted that some men of God who worked for the emergence of All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015 have decided to remain silent in the face of injustice.
The fierce cleric said God will hold the men of God who worked for the election and re-election of Buhari accountable if they continue to keep silent, while the wicked continue with their wickedness.
He said, “Samuel pronounced and anointed Saul as the king of Israel. When Saul went astray, it was the same Samuel who confronted and told him that God had rejected him as king. Where are those who brought President Buhari to power? Why would they continue to watch the wicked rejoice over the people?
“What has come over them? Why can’t they speak out against evil, injustice and oppression? haven’t they heard from God?
“May the enemies of Nigeria don’t know peace for the rest of their lives in Jesus name. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them, and they will be paid back for what their hands have done.
“Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and finds a town with violence. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
“How can a president who is really proactive be watching while criminals take over his government? Why must you wait for issues to happen before you react? Who does that?
“Can anyone be happy to see or hear that his children have been maimed, displayed and killed by bandits?
“Why are you running away from what can permanently solve the nation’s challenges? He has refused to change that evill 1999 constitution, he abandons 2014 comfab report, no restructuring and he is saying Nigeria should not disintegrate.
“Tell him that people will go by force, by fire. Open your mouth and tell the devil that ‘you can’t hold me down.’
“Whatever holding Nigeria down is hereby broken into pieces in Jesus name. A new name shall be given soon and the devil will be put to shame.
“If president Buhari refuses to divide Nigeria, the country will divide herself. Anybody who loves him should tell the president that he should allow Nigerians to go their different ways,” he added.

The couple got married but divorced when the younger Obama was two years old. His father returned to Kenya where he died in a car crash in Nairobi in 1982. The StraitTimes reports that Mr Obama never really knew his father, whom he met only once when he was 10, but he felt a connection that eventually took him to Kenya in 1987 in search of his roots.

Man Left His Wife After Finding N3.6m In Her Account And Their Son Died Because Of Hospital Bills
The heart of Man is desperately wicked to an extent that a woman will have a huge sum of money in her bank account and not willing to release it to save her only child’s life .
It was gathered that her husband could not afford to pay their son’s medical bills urgently and the boy wasn’t given medical attention which led to his death. Thereafter, her husband found the sum of N3.6 million in her account.
According to TVC, it says that “Couple loses sick son after they both refused to pay the hospital bills. The wife claimed that her husband has a habit of giving excuses each time monetary issues cones up. Her husband left the house after finding N3.6 million in her account after their son’s death”.
In my opinion, the man must have seen her as a wicked woman that was why he left her.
