You Must Capture Shekau Alive ..Military Orders Soldiers

Following the spate of recent successes recorded by troops against Boko Haram insurgents in the North East, Nigerian troops have been put on red alert for any insurgents’ leader bearing the name of Imam Abubakar Shekau, who is believed to be desperately looking for escape routes.
A senior military source, however, informed defence publicist, PRNigeria, that troops had been urged to try at all costs to capture Shekau alive, so that he would face justice.
On at least two occasions now, troops had killed characters calling themselves Abubakar Shekau in videos, but the insurgents managed to find other individuals looking like him and pretended that he was still alive.
The order to catch Shekau alive is, therefore, to ensure that it would no longer be possible to resort to the same trick.
According to sources, the rumour about Shekau’s invincibility was one of the factors troops were afraid of to confront the terrorists.
Meanwhile the troop’s morale has been greatly boosted in recent times, by the arrival of sophisticated armaments and the decision of senior military officers to lead the war against terror directly.
Intelligence sources disclosed that some of the successes recorded in recovery of big towns in the North-East were due to deployment of new strategies, improved disciplinary measures; sincerity of participating countries in the regional alliance and the acquisition of latest equipment.
In the past, Colonels had led direct attacks in accordance with military tradition, but because of the large scale desertions recorded, Generals had decided to directly lead the war.
It was even learnt that many of the troops that earlier deserted had returned while others had expressed desire to return to the front.
Within a week of the massive operation, the troops had recovered Monguno, Marte, Gamboru Ngala, Dikwa among other big towns and several surrounding communities in Borno State.
The source added that “with acquisition of new equipment from various sources and the specialised training of the troops on guerrilla warfare, the military indirectly called the bluff of some deceptive Western countries who are now trying to save face by claiming to work with our neighbours.
“The effective collaboration and mutual relationship with our neighbours is paying off, as they now realise that inactions can pose disasters to their countries too,” the source noted.
