Boko Haram terrorists under the banner of Islamic State branch of West Africa have released a new video.
BBC reports that Abubakar Shekau, boko haram leader did not appear in the video and the person who speaks did not introduce himself or make any reference to Shekau.
In the video, the terrorists denied recent successes claimed by the Nigerian military. A masked person in military fatigue flanked by well-armed fighters said they are still operating in the Sambisa forest and promised to counter any attack by the army.
Tomi Oladipo of BBC reports that the video concludes with killings (including beheading), some of the victims in uniform.
