Embattled Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has appeared in a new video, his first since March 2016. The 24-minutes video, in which Shekau spoke in Hausa and Arabic came as a reaction against the question of his leadership in the Boko Haram Sect.
"I, Abubakar Ash-Shakawy (Shekau), the leader of Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, made it a duty for myself to fight Nigeria and the whole world.
We have no desire to fight our Muslim brethren. I’m alive by the permission of Allah" he said
