Shekau Latest Video: Army Says Boko Haram Has Ended, Shekau Is Insane


The Nigerian Army has described the latest video released by Boko Haram

leader, Abubakar Shekau, as nothing but a propaganda tool, sign of

desperation and insanity. The Army’s response was contained in a press

statement signed by Colonel Sani K. Usman, acting Director of Army Public

In the video, released  on Sunday , the Army said Shekau made

characteristically “insane” assertions. The terrorist, added the Army,

threatened various towns, groups and individuals as well as denied the

fact that he was wounded in an air raid by the Nigerian Air Force.

“The video has shown beyond all reasonable doubt the earlier suspicion

that the purported factional terrorists’ group leader is mentally sick and

“The ranting is also another sign that the end is near for him which is

part of the signs of all wicked people,” the Army said.

The Nigerian Army explained that the facts on the ground show that the

military has been making concerted efforts to clear the remnants of the

terrorists and rescue all persons held hostage by them, especially the

abducted Chibok Secondary School girls. The Army disclosed that thousands

of persons have been rescued from the terrorists  by troops.

The video, further explained the Army, has further shown that Shekau no

longer practices Islam, as he was absent at the last Eid prayers video.

The Army added that he was also unable to even lead prayers and advised

Nigerians not to be fooled by Shekau.
“No nation or society would believe him or any Boko Haram terrorist based

on his antecedents and as he  has shown over time to be irrational and

therefore unreliable, especially when it comes to negotiations on the

release of the abducted girls. Therefore he must release them

unconditionally,” the Army stated.
The Army also assured Nigerians, especially residents of Maiduguri, Kano,

Kaduna and Zaria, of their safety it is capable of protecting them from

attacks by Boko Haram the remnants.
“We would like to reiterate that Boko Haram terrorism, as it was known, is

gone for good. We are just counting down to the day when all the few

remnants will be totally wiped out or brought to justice. However, a

window still exists for the repentant ones among them to lay down their

arms and surrender to justice,” the statement concluded.
