The Boko Haram sect yesterday, Sunday, released a new video which showed the insurgents parading an unnamed captured own on an armoured tank.
The Video, obtained by the AFP, also showed the group’s leader Abubakar Shekau preaching to residents of the captured town.
Though it was not possible to tell whether the footage was staged for propaganda purposes, expecially scenes of residents cheering Islamist fighters.
The massage appeared to be aimed at reinforcing shakau’s claim that he has created a caliphate within Nigeria.
In the 44 minutes video, AFP reports that the Boko Haram voice support for other so-called caliphates, including the one proclaimed in Iraq and Syria by the Islamic group.
The video which was also delivered through the same channels as past messages, shows armed men lined along a well-paved road, with three pick-up truck bristling with heavy weapons alsi visible.
