The Nigerian Army has said a video clip released by Boko Haram Terrorist group from an undisclosed location showing its purported leader Shekau, making spurious claims is nothing but a propaganda by a sinking man.
A statement by Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations said while effort is on going to subject the video for further forensic analysis,” the Nigerian Army wishes to reiterate that it has captured and occupied the last known stronghold of the terrorists group in the Sambisa forest.
“We would like to reassure the public that this video is nothing but mere terrorists propaganda aimed at creating fear in the mind of people and to remain relevant.
“Our gallant 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 bring them to justice.
“Consequently, the public are 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”.
