The Defence Headquarters has urged Nigerians and the international community to disregard a new video clip that shows Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau rallying around his men. Shortly after the video was released, the Military said it was going to investigate the video and have now come out with a statement saying the video is FAKE and should be disregarded. In a statement released last night, the DHQ said;
â€œIt has come to the notice of the Defence Headquarters about the online video clips purportedly released by the Boko Haram Terrorists Leader, Abubakar Shekau or his replica in Arabic and Hausa Languages showing remorse and asking for forgiveness.
â€œThe DHQ wishes to state emphatically that not minding the contents of the video clips, the Armed Forces of Nigeria would continue to fight in order to consolidate the successes recorded so far and assuring Nigerians that no inch of the Nigerian territory would be allowed to be bastardized by any force of darkness again. The DHQ is also reassuring the good citizens of our great country that all captives under the coffer of the Boko Haram Terrorists, would regain their freedom with the ongoing militaryâ€™s final offensive against the terrorists.
The DHQ stressed that, â€œthe Nigerian Military would not rest until all the remnants of the terrorist group are completely wiped out of our blessed land,â€ it said.
