The terrorist sect, Boko Haram under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau, has threatened to capture Nigeria President,Muhammadu Buhari.
This threat was disclosed in a new video released on Tuesday.
The footage, narrated in Hausa, is said to have been shot somewhere in Borno State, northeast Nigeria where the sect has its base. It showed suspected terrorists praying on what the narrator said is an Eid ground on Sallah day Monday.
In the video, which was recorded in composite to capture two Eid grounds, the group stated its willingness to continue its jihad against the Nigerian state.
Referring to Buhari as an infidel, the group said, “This is our eid prayer from us and by the support of our leader Imam Abubakar Al-Shekau, we are extending our greetings to our people and fighters.
“Message to the infidels and the leader of the entire infidels (kafir) who is the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, that he should know we are very strong and doing very good.
“By the will of Allah under the leadership of our leader (Shekau), we will capture Buhari with our hands.”
The video was posted on YouTube Tuesday and the group said it was using it to send out message that it remained a strong force.
The terrorists have lost several territory they once controlled as the Nigerian military continues its onslaught against them.
The group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, did not appear in the video, but the narrator said his deputy, whose name was not mentioned, represented him at the gathering.
