Listen to article

SAN FRANCISCO, November 14, (THEWILL) – Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau on Sunday night reacted to the election of Donald Trump as the United States, U.S President, warning that “the war has just begun” against the West.

In an hour-long audio message posted on YouTube, he said, “Do not be overwhelmed by people like Donald Trump and the global coalition fighting our brethren in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and everywhere.

“We remain steadfast on our faith and we will not stop. To us, the war has just begun.”

Boko Haram, which last year pledged allegiance to the international terrorist group, Islamic State, IS, has been embroiled in a power struggle, as the IS high command said in August that Shekau had been replaced as leader by Abu Musab al-Barnawi.

But Shekau is insisting that he is still in charge.
