Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has again failed to appear in a new video released by the sect on Wednesday BBC reports.
The video which was posted on BBC’s Twitter handle today, shows the members of the deadly group pledging allegiance to Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).
A man who spoke on behalf of the insurgents, however said that Boko Haram was still under the leadership of Shekau, who was last seen in February.
He countered claims that several insurgents had surrendered to the Nigerian army.
The insurgent also said it was untrue that the army had released some women and children abducted by the sect.
According to the stand-in Boko Haram spokesperson, “Nigerian troops, having failed on the battlefield, are now waging the war through the media.”
