Leading the terrorist Organization, Abubakar killed tens of thousands and also kidnapped lots of innocent souls. According to Reuters, he was cornered after a gun battle and offered a chance to repent and join his rivals but instead blew up himself by detonating an explosive device, the wire service said, citing Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) recording.

Abubakar Shekau killed over 30000 and forced around 2million people to flee from their homes, rendering many homeless and displaced.
He led Boko haram since 201, with America making him a Special Designated Global Terrorist by putting a $7million bounty on his head.
