According to Sahara Reporters, some members of Boko Haram last week gathered at an open field at an undisclosed location and celebrated Sallah.
The terrorists are said to have released a video of the celebration, and SR obtained screenshots from the video, which are shown above.
According to the report:
SaharaReporters could not confirm the date the video was shot, as only screenshots of the video were made available to us by a citizen reporter. In the video, sect members can be seen calmly saying Eid prayers in the company of their families, with a rifle standing upside down.
The video images may be part of the sect’s efforts to counter statements by the Nigerian army that the Islamist insurgent fighters were on a steady retreat, with Nigerian troops seizing a sizeable territory hitherto occupied and controlled by members of the terrorist sect.
