NewsOne Nigeria reports that the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, declared in the new video that he can’t be arrested.
The Boko Haram leader explained that security operatives can’t arrest him because he was doing God’s work.
Boko Haram Leader Shekau made the declaration in response to reports of manhunt for him and his followers by the Federal Government through the Nigerian Army.
The Boko Haram leader appeared in the new video after the Nigerian Army released a list of 86 persons wanted “in connection with act of terrorism” in Nigeria last week.
Those on the list released by the Nigerian Army are alleged to be members of the Boko Haram sect.
The list was launched by the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, alongside Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno state, at the Nigerian Army Super Camp, Chabbal in Konduga local government area of Borno, northern Nigeria.
Among those on the list are the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, Abu Musa Al Barnawi, Modu Sulum, Malkam Umar, Bello Husba, Yan Kolo, Ibrahim Abu Maryam, Baka Kwasari, Bana Gonna, Mohammed Abu Maryam, Abu Imma, and Abu Dardda.
Days after the Nigerian released a list declaring Shekau wanted, the Boko Haram leader has appeared in a new video where he declared that “Nobody can apprehend me”.
However, in his latest 30 minutes video, Boko Haram Leader Shekau said God would protect him.
Boko Haram Leader Shekau also warned that the war against the federal government of Nigeria would continue even after him.
“Nobody can apprehend me because I’m doing God’s work. He will protect me like those doing similar work and seeking His protection.
“I’m very sure God will protect my commanders,” the Boko Haram leader said.
