Nigerian Army, Fake Soldier

The Defence Headquarters says that it is studying claims made in a video purportedly released by the Boko Haram sect showing its leader Abubakar Shekau allegedly dismissing his death.

A statement issued by the Defence Headquarters says that from immediate observation and what some online news outlets claimed to have seen, the video does not indicate when it was shot neither does it show any proof of life or currency such as screen time or date.

The statement adds that the video also did not make any reference to anything that has happened since what the military describes as the impostor’s reported death.

The Defence Headquarters says that it is also noteworthy that the airplane said to be mentioned in the video had been missing before Abubakar Shekau was allegedly killed.

The military is affirmative that the individual who appears in video and claims to be the leader of the terrorist group was killed in the Kondunga battle in September.
