Shekau’s Latest Video; “It is nothing but mere terrorists propaganda” – Army



Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai

The Nigerian Army has described the video purportedly released by the Boko Haram showing its leader as “mere terrorists propaganda.”

A statement by Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman in Abuja on Thursday said the attention of the Nigerian Army had been drawn to the video clip released by the group from an undisclosed location, showing its purported leader, making spurious claims.

“While effort is on-going to subject the video for further forensic analysis, the Nigerian Army wishes to reiterate that it has captured and occupied the last known stronghold of the terrorists group in the Sambisa forest.

We would like to reassure the public that this video is nothing but mere terrorists propaganda aimed at creating fear in the mind of people and to remain relevant.

Therefore, there is no cause for alarm, more so as concerted effort in clearing the vestiges of Boko Haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding, is on-going.

Our gallant troops deployed in various parts of the North-East have continued to intensify search for all persons associated with Boko Haram terrorist group with a view to bringing them to justice,” Usman said.

He urged the public to go about their normal lawful business, remain vigilant and be security conscious, adding that any suspicious person or group of persons should be reported to the security agencies.

    General Tukur Buratal. Why should we believe you or the Nigerian Army now? The Nigerian Army lacks credibility. You and the Nigerian Army have stated numerous times before that they’ve killed Abubakar Shekau which turned out to be false. If Boko Haram’s statement is a mere terroristic propaganda, then yours is just a face saving military cover up. Guess what? We just don’t believe you. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
