Boko Haram: Infidels Like You Saying You Have Defeated Us - Shekau To Army

A new video has been released online showing the leader of the Boko Haram sect mocking Buhari and the military after reports of their defeat by the Army. In the video which was released on Thursday, Shekau is seen with some of his hooded commanders and some military hardware.

According to Shekau, the video was made on Christmas day, days after their purported defeat at the hands of the Nigerian Army. The message in the video which was in Hausa and Arabic was this:

“My message is to you Buhari. Your age is up to 72 years, fear Allah. Allah’s Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), while in Medina, wrote letters to leaders.

“There was one who repented and became a Muslim; Buhari, repent. In this old age, you have been tied; if you don’t repent, you will see. Wallahi (By Allah), if you don’t repent, you will see.

“As for you, (Gen.) Kukah Sheka, you are a liar, looking for money under infidels; infidels like you saying you have defeated us.

“Has anyone defeated someone pursuing a religious cause? Our fear is the fear of leaving our ideology, not the fear of anything else.

“You must understand this and stop lying to people. If you have finished us like you said, will you see me like this? You have killed us in your usual bogus way; like someone asked ‘does Shekau have nine lives?’ I have only one life wallahi (by Allah); it is just that my time on earth has not ended.”

Speaking directly to the Army Chief Buratai, he said “Nothing has happened to us. We are fine, we have not been driven anywhere. Tactics and strategy will not allow us reveal our location unless Allah wills it. Tactics will not allow us, you rely on Europeans as advisers: Germany, America, Italy, Israel, Russia; you boast in them? We boast with Allah.”

He went on to say “Your soldiers want to rest that’s why they have said they have finished the job. In the near future, we will start (sarcastic laughter); when we start, you will know.

“If you try us, you will see whether or not we are working because the job is for the one who owns the heavens and you are under the heavens.

“First of all, here I am. You want to spend the money given to you by the Germans, now you have not succeeded.

“Playing football and following the constitution, democracy, drumming, singing, dancing, destruction and you think this is how you are going to succeed against us?”

“Remember the past, look at today, tomorrow is not yours, yesterday will tell you about today.”

In what sounded like a call to arms, Shekau said “We are the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad,(Arabic: People committed to the propagation of the Prophet’s teachings and Jihad).  We are on a Jihad and our aim is to establish an Islamic Caliphate.

“We have our caliphate; we are not part of Nigeria. We are here, our brothers, kill infidels, fight wars, detonate bombs, slaughter; that is how our forbearers – not blood relations, but our religious brothers – that is how they did it.

“This is what I have to say to you, the work is not yet done, there is still work to be done. Before we were born, he knew we will come to do this; we will not leave our religion.”

He concluded by saying to the Army “You said last Friday, you defeated us, for you to enjoy your Christmas? You will not enjoy it. It is me, Abubakar Muhammad Al-Shekawi.”

The Army on the other hand has responded to this development, saying it is a mere propaganda even as they were conducting forensic test on the video to ascertain its veracity. Speaking on the issue, Brig. Gen. Sani Usman the Acting Director, Army Public Relations had this to say:

“While effort is ongoing to subject the video to further forensic analysis, the Nigerian Army wishes to reiterate that it has captured and occupied the last known stronghold of the terrorist group in the Sambisa Forest.

“We reassure the public that this video is nothing but a mere terrorists’ propaganda, aimed at creating fear in the mind of people and to remain relevant. Therefore, there is no cause for alarm, more so as concerted effort in clearing the vestiges of Boko Haram terrorists, wherever they might be hiding, is still ongoing.

“Troops deployed in various parts of the North-East have continued to intensify search for all persons associated with Boko Haram terrorist group with a view to bringing them to justice.

“Consequently, the public is hereby enjoined to go about their normal lawful business, remain vigilant and security conscious. They should also report any suspicious person or group of persons to security agencies.”
