‘I Personally Led Damaturu Attacks’, Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau Says In New Video
The leader of Jama’atu Ahlis Sunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, also known as Boko Haram, Imam Abubakar Shekau, on whose head United States place a $7 million ransom last night appeared in a new video, saying he personally led recent attacks in Damaturu, Yobe State on October 24th 2013.
A military source who watched the new video in Damaturu told SaharaReporters that, Imam Shekau boasted of overrunning Nigerian military, explaining that the sect will triumph over military and put in place Islamic government under Allah’s descriptions, despite Nigeria’s government resistance.
Also, Shekau displays a cache of arms including AK47 guns, RPGs and a large sum of ammunition, he claimed the sect seized from Nigerian troops.
Shekau in the video also disclosed that the Damaturu attack was one of the sects most successful operations as it killed several Nigerian soldiers.
He further took a swipe at the government sanctioned “Dialogue and Amnesty Committee” led by Minister of Special Duties, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki claiming it was a deceitful plot aimed at creating division within the Boko Haram sect.
He added that they do not know the committee and have had nothing to do with it.
Shekau was silent on the attack on a wedding convoy that left about 30 people dead during the weekend, which was today refuted by 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri.
