The leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to “repent” or face the wrath of Allah.
In a new video obtained by Daily Nigerian on Thursday, Shekau first made a lengthy introduction in Arabic before he started talking in Hausa at 10:53 minutes.
“I thank Allah. I thank Allah. I made a short preamble because of the Nigerian transgressors who deceived their forefathers and grandparents. Allah says they are merely the tails of pigs and monkeys.
“My message for you transgressors. You Buhari, your age is about 72, since they put you in this nonsense you should repent. You should fear Allah, and if you don’t repent you will see,” he said.
Shekau also blasted the spokesman of Nigerian Army, Sani Usman, saying the report of their defeat was a mere propaganda.
On December 25, President Buhari congratulated Nigerian troops for defeating Boko Haram and taking over their main camp in Sambisa Forests.
