Factional leader of the Boko Haram terrorist sect, Abubakar Shekau has reportedly released a video claiming that the group has not been flushed out of its headquarters in Sambisa Forest, AFP reports.

“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,” AFP quoted Shekau as saying.

“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?” Shekau said, referring to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking in Hausa and Arabic, Shekau said the video was shot on Christmas Day, one day after President Buhari broke the news that the terrorist sect’s last known stronghold had fallen.

Shekau, who was reportedly surrounded by armed fighters in the video, also debunked the claim that he was wounded in battle, saying that “the war is not yet over” until an Islamic State was imposed in Northern Nigeria.

“There is still more (war),” Shekau said, urging followers “fight and kill infidels.”

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

However, there is no record of the video, written by an AFP reporter in Kano, on the internet.

    If this is real and the military has gone so low as to start ‘doctoring’ victories then this country and what it stands for has irrevocably gone to shit.

    BuBu needs money for the 2019 campaign so they need to keep the Boko Haram military funds afloat.

    ““There is still more (war),” Shekau said, urging followers “fight and kill infidels.”” ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE, I REPEAT

      But Shekau does not represent islam, he kills both Christians and muslims alike… thing is, it could be that islam is a religion of peace, but illiterate Imams will not stop hiding under religion to exhibit violence, promote promiscuity and encourage misogynistic behaviours.

    From the little I don’t know about this stuff, the use of the word safe actually means that the Nigerian Army is really not giving them rest. Shekau is really a matter of time. Not for the sake of Buhari regime but for innocent souls & Lives, nemesis will catch up
