Nigeria’s militant group Boko Haram yesterday released another new video,
vowing that it will continue to fight for its version of Islamic
“You should know that there is no truce, there is no negotiations,
there is no surrender,” an unidentified masked man in camouflage said in
Hausa, the main language in the region.
The message came after an unverified video last month showed Boko Haram
leader Abubakar Shekau looking frail, and suggesting that his time at the helm
of Boko Haram may be coming to an end.
In the latest video, there are men holding AK-47 rifles in front of
Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks and a lorry mounted with a military cannon.
