In a 24mins new video exclusively obtained by AFP and seen by Vanguard, Nigeria's Islamic sect, Boko Haram's shadowy leader, Abubakar Shekau, appeared in the new video vowing to fight on, shrugging off an apparent split in the hardline jihadist group blamed for thousands of deaths since 2009.
In the video which he was seen wearing camouflage gear, holding a machine gun, and standing between two Islamist fighters in balaclavas armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Shekau in his speech in Arabic and Hausa, 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 which was apparently filmed in Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest, Shekau, said that he would only die when his time came, fired off rounds of ammunition into the air.
Below are some of his words culled from the video clip;

“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. I’m alive by the permission of Allah. We have no desire to fight our Muslim brethren.

“By contrast, Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the man announced as the new leader, clearly stated in his al-Naba interview that attacks against Muslim civilians, mosques and markets will not be a staple of his leadership,” Shekau said in the video released on Sunday.
