Boko Haram: Shekau vows to fight on in new video.

Boko Haram’s shadowy leader Abubakar Shekau has appeared in a new video vowing to fight on, shrugging off an apparent split in the hardline jihadist group blamed for thousands of deaths since twenty zero nine.

Last week, Shekau said in an audio message he was still head of the group despite his purported replacement by Sheikh Abu Musab al-Barnawi, a former Boko Haram spokesman.

Shekau ridiculed suggestions that he was dead, and looked more composed and energetic than in previous appearances.

In the video he is wearing camouflage gear and holding a machine gun, standing between two Islamist fighters in balaclavas armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

He taunted President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and condemned Western countries including the United States, France, Germany and the tyrants of the United Nonsense UN.

At the end of his speech apparently filmed in Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest of northeastern Nigeria he fired off rounds of ammunition into the air.
