ABUBAKAR SHEKAU VERSUS NIGERIA

Abubakar Muhammad Shekau is dead.

Actually, the latest in the Boko Haram line of Abubakar Shekaus was killed in combat some time last week.

Defence Headquarters, last night on Twitter, confirmed the demise of Mohammad Bashir.

Mohammad Bashir was probably the fifth in Boko Haram’s hierarchy to adopt the designate Abubakar Shekau.

It is either the name Abubakar Shekau contrives magical powers for the insurgent organisation or it is a public relations wile.

To mislead Nigerians regarding the effectiveness of our gallant military, Boko Haram convey in their propaganda that Abubakar Shekau is not dead despite assertions of our security agencies to the contrary.

One must admit Nigerians did subscribe to that deception.

The Nigerian Armed Forces deserve an apology from citizens who openly ridiculed our soldiers over the death of Abubakar Shekau.

I owe our army an apology for though I kept my thoughts private, as I do with such sensitive matters, I was horrified at the re-emergence of Abubakar Shekau.

As of date, it is Nigeria 5: Abubakar Shekau 0.

AlHamduliLlah Nigerian Armed Forces have a presence on Twitter making verifications of military operations much easier for citizens.

The debacle over the identity of Abubakar Shekau and the relative ease with which he was impersonated lends credence to the position that facial identification is not ideal for recognition.

A thought: Did persons who know the face of either Mohammad Bashir or Abubakar Shekau not realise the deception?

Were they party to the propaganda?

Interestingly, persons who were close to Abubakar Shekau continued to address the imposter with that name.

Or do they consider facial recognition necessary only when they wish to deprive citizens of the freedom of Religion?
