TERRORIST organisation, the Islamic State, has named Abu Musab al-barnawi as the new leader of Boko Haram, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Al-Barnawi is featured in ISIS’ latest magazine, the BBC reported.
It is not clear what would or has become of Abubakar Shekau, who had led the terrorist group since its founder, Mohammed Yusuf, was killed in 2009.
Boko Haram had pledged allegiance to ISIS early 2015. However, not much had been heard from Shekau since then.
He last appeared in a video amid speculation that he had been killed, declaring that the end had come for him.
“For me the end has come,” he had said in the video, which was subdued compared to his other videos in which he bragged and taunted the Nigerian government.
