The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said it had recovered Abubakar Shekau’s Qur’an and flag in Camp Zero, the Boko Haram’s Headquarters in Sambisa forest.
Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, said this while giving newsmen update on “Operation Rescue Final’’ in Maiduguri.
“We believe that the Holy Book and the flag were abandoned by Abubakar Shekau while he escaped.
“The Book will be taken to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Burutai, for onward presentation to Mr President.
“We have also made a lot of arrests. Our troops in Damboa arrested about 15 Boko Haram members. We also arrested one Musa from Potiskum on Christmas day which was Dec.25.
“On Dec. 26 our troops also intercepted two Boko Haram suspects in Maiduguri.
“We, therefore, warn residents of the state to be wary of people coming to hide in and around their houses.
“We are also warning residents to report any suspected Boko Haram members hiding in their houses to the relevant security agencies and any failure to do that would tantamount to supporting and sympathising with the sect’s activities,’’ Irabor said.
Time never stop counting.
Well done our Soldiers for your bravery.
Well done Mr President Buhari for your support.
Well done good Nigerians for your support and prayers.
God we thank You.
Cudos to pmb nd our gallant soldier rideon
It is time for the likes of buhari to comment. #Nonsense! We shall soon hear that boko haram is regrouping or that they defeat will not stop insurgency! #Learn_to_do_right!

Arm chair critic, why not join them in Sambisa?
That is why I said the likes of buhari! What your responses suggested is what I have expected. Just look up to your liars, putting you into cages.
We were all here when BH almost took over government
Now they are already in gov’ment house. Can’t you see it!
Ara n da Ekun ti o ba joju, E je ki omo oligini da ti e, ka wo ran. I appreciate the nigerian Soldiers. If u know u can do better than them, pls. Join the fight at sambisa forest.
God bless you Mr Adewale

Na flag dey won chop?
Because you never understand what it means. And what concerns flag with chop? Is the army fighting for chop? If you don’t have meaningful comment concerning this post, kindly log out.
Come on! You kidding me,ain’t you? We have plenty bullshit to contend with,don’t give us more.The government is just making jest of itself if this news is true.
How dem take know say na him get the Quran ?

What’s the special thing’s about common FLAGS & QURAN? Where is Abubakah Shekaru the most INFIDEL? why is he RUNNING, upon his BOASTS,
Hmmm, if the fall of camp zero was not an achievement, it is wondered how you will appreciate finding answers to your posers.

Ask ur brother buhariara
Well done good Nigerians for your support and prayers this issue is not stop Nigerians prayer oooooooo
Nigerians want Shekau not his flag. May be after two or three months than we discover his shoes and another time his cap. Sheer propaganda.
What is so special about an ordinary piece of cloth called flag for the military to rejoice about? Can’t anybody display anything and call it flag? Abi the Nigerian Army wants to claim to be ignorant of most of our new generation churches hoisting many of those western countries flags? Abeg, this is rubbish jare! Mtcheeeeew!
Hmmmm, your feelings are better imagined at the fall of camp zero!

People deceive people
Emmanual/ bcareful an mind ur public conduct, if u don hav any paramount contributio 2 post- pls kep silent
Please, the peace of sack clothes and a self hand written book he claimed to be Qur’an is not recognized by Islam. So Muslim are not interested to know what he wrote for deceiving the none literate. Do away wt it. And again all bastard white men captured in the forest shall explain to Nigeria their duty in the camp.God I hail.
Where are the sponsors of bokoharam?
True talk bruh
dere in Biafra land
Where ar d girls?
Shekau is a lad and to believe anyone linking this too young a beast with a reknown moslems scholars who alwaz write QUR’AN by heart and the copies attributed to who wrote devoid of mistakes and errors. Therefore, whoever elevated Shekau to those higher planes has delibrately created a mountain from a heap of stones period. WISDOM.
Mohammed yusuf was the founder of bokoharam and he was pampered then. Blame the northern elites for the spread of bokoharam doctrine
My respect for you and your comment and that have always been my reason for not believing in whatsoever BOKO HARAM, a hopeless venture, a hoax and a sentimental feelings of some as manifested in the insurgency and Chibok girls classic gimmick as well. THANKS NOBLE.
who is fooln who
Pls, think before commenting…
Bravo to our gallant soldiers.
Allah ya taimakeku duk lnda kukasagaba Ameen
Congrats to our champions
army should stop morching nigeria citizens pls
We don’t care,the most important thing is that you guys has done a job and kudos but you people need more efforts to bring back the remaining chibok girls so that we will believe that the real battle has been won and clean in good ground,then tackle the issue of herdsmen.
The same Sambisa forest Jonathan, Dasuki, & Alex Badeh claimed no human being can enter it except Spirits & Ghosts.
Thanks to our gallant soldiers.
Arrest the sponsors and stop making reference to Jonathan. Who breed bokoharam in the first place?
BUHARI And NORTHERN ELDERS
hausa fulanis terrorist are brainless idiots
some people are not happy with the defeat. some are happy dat. shame to PDPig with there foot soldiers.
“Bokoharam are our children, you can’t send Army to Sambisa to wipe them off”— Jonathan.
“For Bokoharam to come to an end, we must declare state of emergency in Borno, Yobe, & Adamawa states”—- Jonathan
Q1 of 2014
“Sambisa forest is very dangerous, you can’t send troops to risk or waste their precious lives”—– General Minimah, former COAS
Q3 of 2014. “We don’t have weapons to fight insurgency in the Northeast”—– Alex Badeh.
So pls who is deceiving who????
The question remains that who created bokoharam and why? You can’t create something maliciously and later begin to complain when the boko boys turn against their paymasters. Ask your northern elites
Bokoharam is created by your evil party PDP inorder to embezzle the funds meant for security & the welfare of the soldiers fighting insurgency.
Nigerian army is a wining team,an dey will never lost,congrats soldiers.
No weapons recovered, no Chibok girl rescued. Were the muslim terrorists really defeated or they tactically withdrew?
Quran and flag wen dem manufacture by themselves ? Me I get brain ook
Well done our military, but na d same Shekau wey una don kill since?
So where is shekau and d chibok girls?
Find shekau not his flag.
Yes join the fight
More blessing nigeria army
We need shekau not a piece of cloth pls
I know many of us can’t know the meaning of the flag, But in a military or let me say in a battle field who ever his flag is no more functioning it means such a group or country has been eradicated, so mind your speech shekau may not be captured for now but, I believe were ever he is now, he can never have a rest of mind. Go on you military may Allah be with you.
So what does the flag in his new video suggest?
How many Shekau do we have in Sambisa forest?
Instead of pple 2 be encouraging ad praying 4 d army dere ar commenting nonsense here some pple will just die at d hearing of gun shut common cultis ad cultis fight pple cn nt withstand it on d street nt 2 talk of army ad deadly forces do dere knw hw many army dat hv gone because of dis fight or dere think d army ar just playing or wat if it is dat easy den dere should organise all d whole hunters in Nigeria ad den take dem 2 sambisa forest ad see if some will even cm back alive again.
God bless you. Nelson
I hissssss with the stupidity in this message. So Nigerians should start rejoicing for a piece of flag and qur’an.

Shekau has been killed for about 3 times and now his flag is being captured.theArmy should not that boko haram are still in mallamfotori, kankarauwa etc

Thank you Nigeria Army. may GOD help you throughout your life and after
Some people as just talking any how, if you don’t know how you can appreciate Nigiria army you better stop saying stupid .
Did he wrote his name on the Qur’an’s?… Idiots zombies
Pls, think before commenting…
JIMOH GET OUT
We commend our military but the recovery of the Quran and the flag are irrelevant, I was surprise to have seen the commading officer of Lafia dole saying he will handover the recovered items (common flag which can be printed within a second) to Chief of Army for an onward delivery to Mr.president. We are talking of the capturing of Shekau life or dead someone is recovering flag does this add together
We want shekau alive
All this type of government sponsord highest level lies is what that I’ll finally led Nigeria to fall headlong into the bottomless pit of hell.what a mayopick lieying fabricated story by the army of Africas most wicked /corruption COUNTRY. The nigerdoom, Its very shamefull indeed. Wt the loss of many Cols and countless Innocent souls.what the army is celebrating wt the whole fools of nigeria is a pics of rag & peper? In this digital era?

Am very suprise most of Southern Nigeria didnt like this admistration but we are one nation? We support PRES BUHARI WE SUPPORT OUR ARMY IN FIGHTONG TERROSIST ?REMAIN BIAFRA AN AVENGERS THIS IS BIG CHALLENGE AFTER BH? I HOPE FG WILL LOOKS THIS CRIMES
If Nigeria army claim to hv killed shekau before Now,what is so special abt his flag and quran,Is it the quran that they hv been fighting for since all this while or something else,no weapon recover,no Boko haram capture,what is even the evidence if that very quran and the flag belong to shekau,shekau is no more alive and his f&Q still existing?Ha who is fooling who?
Nigerian army are worst than politicians they’re only good in confusing the nation
The Koran and flag must be preserved in the national museum, as a memorial for the unborn generation.
The Nigeria army have done their best, we shall continue to pray for the success, by GOD will shekau and his allied shall be like pharoah.
God bless NIGERIA ARMY
