Dreaded and deadly insurgent group, Boko Haram have released a video of a Boko Haram member beheading two men.
It’s first online posting used advanced graphics and editing techniques reminiscent of footage from Islamic State.
Reuters reported that the video which was released on Monday, displayed militants standing behind the two men who are on their knees, their hands tied behind their backs, with one man standing over them, holding a knife.
In the video, one of the men said he comes from Baga in Borno state, and the other said he is from Michika in Adamawa state, both areas where the army said it has recently recaptured territory from Boko Haram.
One of the men further disclosed before the camera that the Nigerian Government paid them to espionage on the sect, before the proceeding of decapitation took place with severely cut bodies shown on the scene.
The demeaning demeanour of the insurgent group on the video, where the use of graphics, the footage of black-clad militants with a black flag, and the editing to show only the aftermath of the beheading, were particularly reminiscent of footage from Islamic state, which has seized large parts of Iraq and Syria and killed several hostages.
