According to AFP, in an audio message posted on YouTube on Sunday evening, Shekau said:

“Do not be overwhelmed by people like Donald Trump and the global coalition fighting our brethren in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and everywhere.”

“We remain steadfast on our faith and we will not stop,” he said in the hour-long message. “To us, the war has just begun.”

The IS high command said in August that Shekau had been replaced as leader by Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the 22-year-old son of Boko Haram’s founder Mohammed Yusuf.
