Leadership change

Makes Statement

Chad’s President Deby says Boko Haram has a new leader. He does not say what had happened to Shekau, but says he had been replaced by Daoud – who has not been heard of before. Derby says Daoud is open to dialogue.

Deby added that he would not recommend that Nigeria negotiate with ‘a terrorist’.
