Boko Haram threatens to capture President in new video

Prez Buhari

Boko Haram has threatened to capture President Muhammadu Buhari.


The group made the threat via a new video posted on YouTube on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.


The video is reported to have shown a group of terrorists observing prayers in commemoration of the recently concluded Eid-el-Kabir festival.


“This is our eid prayer from us and by the support of our leader Imam Abubakar Al-Shekau. We are extending our greetings to our people and fighters,” the terrorists said according to Premium Times.


“Message to the infidels and the leader of the entire infidels (kafir) who is the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, that he should know we are very strong and doing very good.


“By the will of Allah under the leadership of our leader (Shekau) will capture Buhari with our hands,” they added.


The video comes exactly one month after Boko Haram released a clip showing a group of the abducted Chibok girls with a terrorist.


The sect is demanding the release of its detained members in exchange for the girls and the Buhari administration has said that it is willing to negotiate with the terrorists.
