The Nigerian Army has discredited a video clip released by the so-called Abubakar Shekau faction of the remnants of the boko haram terrorists group, describing the video as a mere propaganda and a sign of desperation.
The Army said in the video, “purported leader of the group in his usual insane manner made all sorts of assertions to the point of threatening various towns, groups and individuals.
He also tried albeit failingly to deny the air raid by the Nigerian Air Force in which he was wounded”.
The video has shown beyond all reasonable doubt the earlier suspicion that the purported factional terrorists group leader is mentally sick and unstable.
The ranting is also another sign that the end is near for him which is part of the signs of all wicked people”.
The Nigerian Army urged the public to disregard the contents of the video clip and not be fooled by this individual. “This is because the facts on the ground speak for themselves. It is public knowledge 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.
This is a task that will be accomplished, no matter how long it takes. We are determined in this regards. Already thousands of persons have been rescued by troops from the terrorists.
The video has further shown that he has derailed and no longer believes and practices the Islam he professes to follow; as he was absent at the last Eid prayers video. It is equally reported that he could not even lead prayers”.
No nation or society would believe him or any Boko Haram terrorist based on antecedent and as he has shown over times 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 said.
The Army assured Nigerians especially the residents of Maiduguri, Kano, Kaduna and Zaria not to panic as it has more than what it takes to defend them and deal decisively with the remnants of the terrorists group.
“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.
A window however, still exists for the repentant ones among them to lay down their arms and surrender to justice,” the Nigerian Army stated.
