While some people think that emergence of the new video by Boko Haram militants is the evidence that the Nigerian military are winning the war against terrorists on papers alone, critics voiced their doubts about the authenticity of this new video.
“These videos [combined into one video from some old videos which have been on YouTube for almost a year] were recorded before air attacks by the Nigerian army,” commented on YouTube Umar Imam who considers the latest Boko Haram video to be nothing more than just another example of the extremist propaganda.
“This false video will not lower the morale of our soldiers,” agreed with him Alliyu Khamis.
Five days ago Boko Haram, the deadly jihadist sect plaguing the northeast of Nigeria, has released a new video in which an unidentified militant re-affirmed the insurgents’ allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS).
In pledging the allegiance to ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Boko Haram spokesman asserted that the terrorist group, which only recently has been known as IS West Africa Province, was still under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau.
Yesterday a special task force in Plateau state, code-named Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), has warned residents to be alert following intelligence reports that Boko Haram insurgents were planning to attack Jos, the state capital, and its environs.
Meahwhile, the army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman has said the army repelled a Boko Haram attack on the military in Yobe state in the morning of Wednesday, October 7.
Usman said in the course of the battle seven soldiers were killed. He added that the army counted more than 100 dead bodies of insurgents following the fight. He saidweapons recovered from the terrorists, included RPGs, AK-47 rifles and various explosives.
