Boko Haram Releases New Video On Captured Towns, Shekau Seen Preaching To Locals

A new Boko Haram video obtained by AFP on Sunday shows militants on an armoured vehicle parading down a road in an unidentified town they apparently control and the group's leader Abubakar Shekau preaching to locals.
In the 44-minute video, residents are also shown cheering the terrorists. In addition, Shekau is heard reiterating that there are no ongoing ceasefire talks with the government, and threatening to kill the man purported to be Boko Haram’s negotiator.

He also expresses support for ISIS and other so-called caliphates, similar to the one he claims to have established in Nigeria. “To everyone living in Islamic Caliphate, we convey our greetings,” he said, specifically giving a shout out to “brethren” in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Shishan/Chechnya, Yemen, Somalia and “the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria.”
