Boko Haram terrorists with their families, children and slave captives are seen in the 13 minute video released today celebrating Eid purportedly in Sambisa forest.
Though the video date and location cannot be verified, one terrorist in the video made reference to a claim by the Nigerian army that they had been expelled from Sambisa forest, refuting the claim, saying that they were still camped in the forest and environs. The army could not be reached for comment as at the time of this report.
The video images may be part of the sect’s efforts to counter statements by the Nigerian army that the Islamist insurgent fighters were on a steady retreat, with Nigerian troops seizing a sizeable territory hitherto occupied and controlled by members of the terrorist sect.
