He was said to have detonated a bomb that blew him to pieces after a faction of the group, Islamic State of West Africa Province, closed in on him during a fight.

ISWAP Commander, Baana Duguri, was reported to have led the attack that forced Shekau to blow himself up to avoid being captured alive.
