Video: Boko Haram Claims Federal Govt Lied On The Number Of Boko Haram Commanders Exchanged For 82 Freed Chibok Girls


Islamic terrorist Boko Haram group has, in a new video release, confirmed the earlier claims by the Federal Government that some of the arrested terror group’s members, particularly terrorist commanders, were swapped with the recently released Chibok girls in a deal it entered with the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

In the video clip just released, the terrorist group claimed that some of its dreaded commanders who had been variously arrested by security operatives were exchanged with the 82 recently released Chibok girls.

However, in the latest video released to Ahmad Salkida, a journalist who had previously involved in various negotiations between government and Boko Haram, the group countered the Nigerian government’s claims that only five of its commanders were released.

A screengrab taken from a video released by the Nigerian Islamist extremist group Boko Haram shows the leader of the Nigerian Islamist extremist group Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau.
In a series of tweets, Mr Salkida said: “The video has Shuaibu Moni, one of the swapped BH commanders issuing threats to Nigerian authorities and it’s president.

“The commander in the video declared that it is not true that only 5 commanders were released, warning of imminent bombing of Abuja.

“He further said that there’s been no ‘sulhu’ dialogue with government and there won’t be. Only war is between us, he declared.”

Recall that on May 6, Boko Haram released 82 more Chibok schoolgirls they kidnapped more than three years ago, bringing the number of the freed girls to 103.

    How may lives does the leader of BH, Abubakar Shekau have? Has been killed so many times yet he is alive kicking and digging. He has been fatally wound so many times yet he remains as agile and noxious as ever. Why making this unrepentant killer a hero? Why can’t our military, which by every stretch of imagination, is doing a great job in the war theatre, make sure that any information it dishes out is nothing but the truth? Shekau in his perverted way is ever happy to expose the military information lapses. He does that gleefully all the time.
