NIGERIA: ‘Even if I know where Abubakar Shekau is, I won’t tell,’ Chadian President says

Chadian President, Idriss Deby, has said that even if he knows where Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau is, he wouldn’t reveal his whereabouts.

Deby made the statement on Monday, May 11, 2015, while speaking to journalists in Abuja, Nigeria.

“I cannot tell you today that I know where Shekau is hiding ‎and even if I knew, I won’t tell you” the Chadian President said according to Vanguard.
