Abubakar Shekau, boko haram leader, has reportedly recorded a new video to debunk reports that he is injured.

It should be recalled that the media had reported how Shekau was injured in and one of his deputies killed in an air strike. The reports claimed two Nigerian Air Force jets bombarded fighters who had gathered for prayers in Balla village, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Damboa, on the edge of the Sambisa Forest.

However, the latest screenshot of Shekau, which was released by Ahmad Salkida, a journalist close to the sect, was gotten from the new video.

Salkida said Shekau recorded the video on Thursday, May 4, 2017, by 1:00pm, few hours after media reports said he was injured.

According to the journalist “Shekau boasted that his whereabouts will never be known to authorities.”
