Suspected members of Boko Haram have launched attacks on Bale Shuwa community in Maiduguri.
Bale Shuwa is a community 3 km to the Government House.
Residents in this geographic area are trooping out in hundreds because of fear. This sad happenings is after the release of a video 48 hours ago.
Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Jama’atu Ahlil Sunnah Lil Da’awatu Wal Jihad, a faction of the Boko Haram terrorist group, released a taunting video where he stood for 7 mins 46 seconds.
Abubakar Shekau in the video wore a combat gear unlike his previous white robes.
In the video he said: “We are a people that detached ourselves from others to wage war because of Allah, and preach because of Allah to ensure that the flag of Islam is raised, to ensure that Islam spreads, until we are no longer active”.
“Those that said I have died, I will only die when it is my time.”
We can never tell if this fresh attack happening in Maiduguri is a revenge, but we know he is alife and is back with some harsh terror attack.
