Just hours after the U.S. State Department listed the leaders of the dreaded Boko Haram Islamic terrorist sect as terrorist it was revealed the one of the leaders of the sevt ranked as number 4 had been killed. The U.S. is known for using unmanned drone airplanes to kill terrorist’s leaders and with the declaration the same practice could extend to Nigeria.

The member of the Islamic terror group, Boko Haram, Habeeb (Habibu) Bama from Borno State and the mastermind of the bombings of UN Building, Force HQ Abuja, Madalla and Abacha Barracks has been Killed.

A Citizen advocacy group, Hope For Nigeria, was informed this afternoon that Bama was killed in Shot-out with the Nigerian security in Yobe state.

Habeeb Bama was declared wanted by the SSS last year and was on the top Rader of the security Unit.

The full statement on the declaration by the U.S. State Department on Boko Haram leaders read as follows;

“The Department of State designated Abubakar Shekau, Abubakar Adam Kambar, and Khalid al-Barnawi as Specially Designated Global Terrorists under section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224. Shekau is the most visible leader of the Nigeria-based militant group Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad, commonly referred to as Boko Haram. Khalid al-Barnawi and Abubakar Adam Kambar have ties to Boko Haram and have close links to al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.
“Under Shekau’s leadership, Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks in northern Nigeria, its primary area of operation. In the last 18 months, Boko Haram or associated militants have killed more than 1,000 people. Boko Haram is credited with the August 26, 2011 attack on the United Nations building Abuja that killed at least 23 people and wounded scores more. Boko Haram also claimed responsibility for the December 25, 2011 attack on the Saint Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, Nigeria, that killed at least 35 and wounded dozens more. Boko Haram’s deadliest violence occurred on January 20, 2012 in Kano, Nigeria, with a series of attacks that killed more than 180 people. Boko Haram’s victims have been overwhelmingly civilian.
The designation under E.O. 13224 blocks all of Shekau’s, Kambar’s and al-Barnawi’s property interests subject to U.S. jurisdiction and prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in transactions with or for the benefit of these individuals. These designations demonstrate the United States resolve in diminishing the capacity of Boko Haram to execute violent attacks. The Department of State took these actions in consultation with the Departments of Justice and Treasury.”
