A video showing how dreaded Boko Haram insurgents celebrated Sallah in Sambisa forest has surfaced online.
In the five minutes footage, the insurgents held prayers with guards wielding rifles.
The clip was released two days more than 40 persons, including children, were killed by suicide bombers in an attack in Damboa local government area of Borno state.
Although, the Nigerian government claimed that the Boko Haram sect has been decimated, the latest video suggest that the war against terrorists in the Northeast of the country may be far from being over.
In the clip which surfaced on Monday, three insurgents were heard thanking their God for a successful Ramadan.
One of the insurgents was heard saying that God is more than any individual.
“We are the member of the jihad and our leader is Abu Mohammad… Abubakar Ishak – We thank Allah for the fasting and for all our brothers out there,” he said.
“Infidels are in trouble. Thank Allah the fasting is over and Allah pass everybody,” another insurgent said. We want the world to know that we are alive and happy to witnessed the festive occasion.
“We want our enemies to know that we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa and we shall continue to wage war until we score victory against the infidels.”
Efforts to put the group in check have not yielded the desired result, though the current administration has succeeded in limiting the attacks of the sect.
