Shekau appears in new Boko Haram video, denies fall of Sambisa

Self-acclaimed leader of the Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, says the insurgents are safe and have “not been flushed out of anywhere”.boko

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday announced that Boko Haram had been crushed and their camp in Sambisa was destroyed.

“I was told by the Chief of Army Staff that the Camp fell at about 1:35pm on Friday, December 22, and that the terrorists are on the run, and no longer have a place to hide,” the president had said.

But Shekau in a new 25-minute video on Thursday, said that Buhari was “telling lies to the people.”

“We are safe. We have not been flushed out of anywhere. And tactics and strategies cannot reveal our location except if Allah wills by his decree,” Shekau said.

“You should not be telling lies to the people. If you indeed crushed us, how can you see me like this? How many times have you killed us in your bogus death?

“Our aim is to establish an Islamic Caliphate and we have our own Caliphate, we are not part of Nigeria.”
