Deji Adeyanju questions death of Shekau, Attahiru within 24 hours
The convener of Concerned Nigerian advocacy group, Deji Adeyanju has reacted to the death of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Ibrahim Attahiru in a plane crash at the Kaduna International airport on Friday.
Adeyanju, who didn’t understand the reason behind the sudden death of the Chief of Army Staff, questioned the sequence of events.
The Abuja-based rights activist wondered how the death of Attahiru was just 24 hours after the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau was reported dead after clashing with ISWAP in a gun battle.
Reacting to both incidents, Adeyandu tweeted “They said Shekau was killed yesterday. Today, the Chief of Army Staff died in a plane crash. Dear extremists in Govt, what is going on?”
