Abubakar Shekau Reappears In New Video, Says Boko Haram Will Take Over Africa


Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau, has reportedly reappeared in a new video saying his sect will take over the whole of Africa.He claimed responsibility over the recent bombings in Northeast after President Muhammadu Buhari returned from medical leave abroad.The last attack in Maiduguri on Wednesday saw four suicide bombers and two other persons killed.

Shekau also denied reports that most of his members have been killed. Shekau released a 27-minute video in which he spoke for about 20 minutes in Hausa and Kanuri, criticising the countries in the Lake Chad area fighting the group under the Multinational Joint Task Force.

The Boko Haram leader reportedly described as a lie the claim by Cameroon which reportedly announced on Wednesday that its soldiers killed about 60 Boko Haram fighters and arrested scores of others, while freeing about 5000 hostages.

He insisted that his so-called caliphate was ‘running smoothly’.
