‘No Negotiations, No Surrender’ – Boko Haram Makes U-Turn In New Video

share on:

Barely a week after Abubakar Shekau, the shadowy leader of Nigeria’s ruthless Islamic cult, Boko Haram surfaced in a video looking subdued as he insinuated that the end has come for him, the ferocious death sect issued another video on Friday where it foreclosed cessation of monumental havoc.

In a video clip posted in YouTube on Friday, Boko Haram maintained it was a potent fighting force, with fighters posing with AK-47s in front of Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks and a lorry mounted with a military cannon.

“You should know that there is no truce, there is no negotiations, there is no surrender,” an unidentified masked man wearing camouflage said in a prepared script in Hausa, in the video posted on YouTube.

“This war between us will not stop.”

It will be recalled, in spite of the initial purported remorse demonstrated by leader of the sect, the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) still vowed that the Nigerian Armed Forces will not relent in its operations against insurgency in North-East Nigeria.

The video, which was of markedly better quality than Shekau’s and included Arabic subtitles, featured nine masked Boko Haram fighters standing on sandy ground in an undisclosed desert location.

It is not clear if the masked people in the video include the Boko Haram leader.
