Boko Haram Leader Shekhau Denies Reports about His Death




A man said to be Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, on Sunday released an audio recording in which he refuted reports about his death.

Security experts reportedly confirmed that it was indeed Shekau’s voice in the recording.

According to Sahara Reporters, the recording was eight minutes long and in Hausa language. Here are excerpts of what Shekhau said:

“It is indeed all over the global media of infidels that I am dead or that I am sick and incapacitated and have lost influence in the affairs of religion,” he said in the recording released on social media.

It should be understood that this is false. This is indeed a lie. If it were true, my voice wouldn’t have been heard, now that I am speaking.

Gratitude be to Allah and with his help, I have not disappeared. I am still alive and I am not dead. And I will not die until my time appointed by Allah is up.

…This ostentatious person, a liar — I mean Buhari, who raised arms to crush us in three months. You Buhari, why didn’t you say in three years?” Shekau demanded.

We will certainly fight you by the grace of Allah until we establish Allah’s law everywhere on Earth.”

      @Ese_sleek, Nigerian security agents did not raise the recent rumours or claim he was dead; it was idriss derby, the president of Chad, whose statement about 5 days ago that boko haram has a new leader and that shekau has been replaced, sparked rumours and claims that shekau was dead. A little patriotism and fact-checking beforehand can go a long way to make a person appear intelligent and clothe him/her with dignity. When you bash your country, you bash yourself, why can’t people see that? And you do it for all the people from all the other countries who read all these forums to see.

    This is not the real shekau joor. This blood sucking vampires parading themselves with heartless impunity will soon be a thing of the past. I am not surprised tho, they are practising the real islam, all others claiming to be muslims are fake.

    Nigerian military go bomb their ass out.
