BOKO HARAM LEADER, SHEKAU IN NEW VIDEO; SAYS HE’S ALIVE


Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has dismissed Nigerian military claims of his death in a new video on Thursday, according to the AFP.The new 36-minutes video according to the news agency showed Shekau in combat fatigues and black rubber boots, standing on the back of a pick-up truck and firing an anti-aircraft gun into the air, saying, “Here I am, alive. I will only die the day Allah takes my breath…  Nothing will kill me until my days are over…”
“I’m still alive. Some people asked you if Shekau has two souls. No, I have one soul, by Allah. It is propaganda that is prevalent. I have one soul. I’m an Islamic student.
“I’m the Islamic student whose seminary you burnt… I’m not dead,” he said reading from a script, according to the AFP.
The Nigerian military had last week released photos to prove that it had indeed killed Shekau in Konduga, Borno State during a battle.
