‘I am alive’, says Boko Haram’s Shekau in new video..AFP


Boko Haram’s leader, Abubakar Shekau or his clone, said to have been killed in Konduga last month by Nigerian troops, is alive.
And he has announced his earthly presence, via the medium he has been using for effect to taunt Nigerian authorities: in a new video.

In the video, he not only debunked stories about his death, he said that his movement is running a Caliphate in the seized towns, north east of Nigeria.

It is a 36minute video, the AFP reported.

“Here I am, alive. I will only die the day Allah takes my breath,” Shekau said, adding that his group was “running our… Islamic caliphate” and administering Sharia punishments.

Close observers of the insurgency in northern Nigeria have doubted the claims that the man who had been appearing in videos as the head of Boko Haram was dead.

‘Be prepared to support Atiku, others for Presidency’ – Buhari tells supporters

All Progressives Congress Presidential ticket contender, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd) has told his supporters to be prepared to rally behind other APC candidates that may clinch the ticket in the upcoming primaries.
“I intend to offer myself for the position of the president of the republic on the platform of our great party; I intend to make a formal announcement soon”, Buhari said.
“I hope I can count on your continuing support and sacrifice. However, I would like to point out to you that, to be more meaningful, your support must extend beyond my person and always be available to the party and all those that the party puts forward; because it is the party that is the platform”.
“It is the primaries that will determine who eventually represents the party in which capacity. If I get the party nomination, I expect you will redouble your effort and commitment until we clinch the presidency”, he added.
“But in the event that it happens to be one of the other aspirants who wins, I will expect you as good party men to extend to him your total support. We are a united party and united we shall remain because our strength lies in our unity.
“My supporters must not engage in any behaviour or conduct that will tarnish the image of any leader or promote division and rancour within the ranks of the party. Whoever does that should know he or she is working for the enemy”.
