Shekau’s New Video A Propaganda- Nigerian Army

The military yesterday said the factional leader of the terrorist group Boko Haram Abubakar Shekau is “unstable and irrational saying he must release the abducted Chibok girls unconditionally.

The Army  was  responding to the latest video released by  Shekau, describing it as propaganda and sign of desperation.

Boko Haram on Sunday released another video in which Shekau appeared for 38 minutes, speaking in Arabic, Fulfulde, Hausa and a line in English. Shekau appeared before a black background with two armed members of the group by his side and about 15 big copies of the Holy Quran in front of him.

He spoke mostly in Arabic and denied being killed or wounded in any Nigerian Air Force raid. He also sent messages to President Muhammadu Buhari, Chief of Army Staff Lt.-General Tukur Buratai, and President Idris  Deby of Chad.

“The unbelievers of Nigeria I am going to be addressing you and Buhari and Idris Deby. The whole world should listen. I am alive. when my days are over you people will not see me again.

“You should make all the preparations you want to make, you and your Ban kii Moon.  I am trying to make the whole world to know that we are not gentle people or sociologists; it is because of God that we evade you when you throw out your bombs,” Shekau said.

He said democracy is evil and for unbelievers on “his brothers and sisters” to return to the right way. “ Do you think democracy is religion, you Hausa of Nigeria? If not for God where will we be? My brothers and sister, return to the Quran.  You Buhari,  go and beg people for money claiming you will collect the young girls back when it is all a lie,” he said.

Army dismisses latest Boko Haram video

Shekau Appears In New Video, Says He Is In Good Health

A factional leader of the Boko Haram militant group, Abubakar Shekau, has appeared in a new video released on YouTube.
Shekau, who sat throughout the 40-minute video, denied claims by the Nigerian military that he was killed or badly injured in recent air strikes.

Speaking in Arabic, Hausa and Kanuri, he said he was still in charge of the militant group.
“Oh tyrants, I’m in a happy state, in good health and in safety,” he said.
Earlier this month, the Islamic State in the Levant and Syria (ISLS) announced Shekau’s replacement with Abu Musab Albarnawi, the son of the late Boko Haram founder, Muhammed Yusuf. Shekau rejected the move. It is not certain when the latest video was recorded.
Defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, in his reaction said it was immaterial whether Shekau was alive or not.
He said the military was not bothered if he was alive, adding that the most important thing was to finish the decimation of Boko Haram.
“We will continue to hit them hard, so the only soft ground for them is the non-traditional media, where all stories can be fashioned to serve their evil and inglorious acts.”
“They know what we have done and what we are up to, they are losing by the days, their members are surrendering on daily basis, we are urging you and your followers to turn yourselves in for your own good before it’s too late,” he said.

Shekau Appears In New Video, Threatens The Whole World

Boko Haram’s shadowy leader Abubakar Shekau has appeared in a new video vowing to fight on, shrugging off an apparent split in the hardline jihadist group blamed for thousands of deaths since 2009.

“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,” Shekau said in the video released on Sunday, using the group’s name since it declared allegiance to the so-called Islamic State.

Last week, Shekau said in an audio message he was still head of the group despite his purported replacement by Sheikh Abu Musab al-Barnawi, a former Boko Haram spokesman.

“We have no desire to fight our Muslim brethren,” Shekau, who last appeared in March, said in the 24-minute video.

Shekau ridiculed suggestions that he was dead, and looked more composed and energetic than in previous appearances.

“I’m alive by the permission of Allah,” he said in his speech in Arabic and Hausa, adding that he would only die when his time came.

In the video he is wearing camouflage gear and holding a machine gun, standing between two Islamist fighters in balaclavas armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

He taunted President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and condemned Western countries including the United States, France, Germany and “the tyrants of the United Nonsense (UN)”.

At the end of his speech — apparently filmed in Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest of northeastern Nigeria — he fired off rounds of ammunition into the air.

No Negotiations, No Surrender, Boko Haram Declares In New Video

Just a week after its leader Abubakar Shekau hinted at ending Boko Haram’s reign of terror in northeastern Nigeria in a video, the group released a new video Friday denying any suggestion it might surrender.

“You should know that there is no truce, there is no negotiations, there is no surrender,” an unidentified masked man in camouflage said in a prepared script in Hausa, the dominant language in the north, in the video posted on YouTube.

in Friday’s message, Boko Haram maintained it was a potent fighting force, with men holding AK-47s posing in front of Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks and a lorry mounted with a military cannon.

“You should know that there is no truce, there is no negotiations, there is no surrender,” an unidentified masked man in camouflage said in a prepared script in Hausa, the dominant language in the north, in the video posted on YouTube.

“This war between us will not stop.”

The video, of markedly better quality than Shekau’s and including Arabic subtitles, featured nine masked Boko Haram fighters standing on sandy ground in an undisclosed desert location.

It is unclear if the masked people in the video include the Boko Haram leader.

Shekau was still the head of the “West African wing”, said the masked speaker, likening Boko Haram to the Islamist insurgencies in Iraq, Libya and Syria.

Controversy Trails Shekau’s ‘New’ Video, Chibok Girl Female Suicide Bomber

There were indications last night that the latest video purportedly released last week by the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, might not have emanated from the Boko Haram leader after all.

A source, who pleaded anonymity, said that the video, in which Shekau was said to have said that the end of the sect’s campaign was near, was shot about two years ago. The source said the video was actually given out by Shekau to a delegation sent by a top Islamic sect leader, Darun Sijjirah, when he pledged allegiance to the Boko Haram leader.

According to the source, it was not possible for Shekau, leaders of the Islamic State for Africa to have released such a document at this moment. “The video is a fake one intended for ulterior purposes and does not emanate from Shekau,” the source said.

Responding to a question, the source also disputed the claim by a female suicide bomber arrested by the Cameroonian authorities that she was one of the Chibok girls taken by the Boko Haram sect since April 14, 2014.

“The truth is that the female suicide bomber arrested in Cameroun is not one of the Chibok girls,” the man said. It was learned that the release of the video, which the Nigerian military had since dismissed as a possible diversionary tactics by the sect, was causing disquiet in the camps of the sect leaders.

This, coupled with the claim by the female suicide bomber arrested in Cameroun, is believed to have compelled the leadership of the sect to contemplate releasing a statement disputing the two issues and to ‘put the records straight’.

It was learned that the group close to Shekau might issue a disclaimer on the two issues within the week, given the erroneous impression and the controversy they had generated within its camps. Boko Haram has killed over 13,000 persons and abducted many men, women and children in its six-year-old campaign against the Nigerian state, which is seeking to end the activities of the group. Nigeria has also dispatched a group to Cameroun to ascertain if, indeed, the female suicide bomber in its custody belongs to the missing Chibok girls.

ISIS Shows New Gold/Silver Coins In New Video

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has come out with plans to mint its own gold and silver coins,which it reveals in its latest video, entitled: “The Rise of the Khilafah and the Return of the Gold Dinar.”

The hour-long video, released on Saturday, which ISIS narrated in English but subtitled in Arabic, began with an extensive analysis on “the capitalist financial system of enslavement, underpinned by a piece of paper called the Federal Reserve dollar note.”

It also highlighted the corruption which it said allowed the American destruction of the monetary system intended by Allah with the production of paper money used to finance oil trade.

The Jerusalem Post, quoting the ISIS narrator regarding the new coins, said the new ISIS currency came in several denominations of silver, gold and copper.

The coins are imprinted with Islamic symbols and “are completely void of human and animal images in accordance with Shariah law.”

The reverse side of one coin shows seven wheat stalks, “representing the blessing of spending in the path of Allah,” the narrator said.

Another coin was imprinted with a map of the world, “representing the extent of territory Mohammad’s reign would reach, including Constantinople, Rome and America,” while another was imprinted with a spear and shield, “showing that the source of provision of Mohammad were from jihad in the name of Allah.”

An ISIS activist was seen on camera walking through the streets, presenting the newly minted coins to shop keepers, armed men and civilians with their smiling children.

The activists explained to the people that the gold coins were worth more than paper money in the bank.

“We are witnessing the return of days, like those during the time of the prophet,” says one shopkeeper, hugging and kissing the ISIS activist.

Boko Haram Releases New Video

Militant Islamists have released a new video on the insurgency in Nigeria, with Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau again failing to appear in it, reports BBC on Monday.

His continued absence has increased speculation about his fate. He was last heard from in March, when he released an audio message pledging allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group.

Soon thereafter, Nigeria’s military said it had recaptured all towns and cities from Boko Haram. The military said on Sunday that it had freed 178 people held captive by Boko Haram in north-eastern Borno state, and had killed a commander following airstrikes on its bases.

In the eight-minute video, an unidentified young man speaks in the name of the Islamic State in West Africa calling on people to be patient: “We are still present everywhere we had been before.”

The video shows the militants attacking a security checkpoint, seizing weapons, and slitting the throat of a man dressed in a police uniform.
