"I’m in a happy state, good health," allegedly injured Shekau resurfaces, mocks Nigerian army.


The leader Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, has resurfaced in a 40-minute video posted online today, rejecting assertions by the Nigerian army that he had been seriously wounded.


In it, he said: “You have been spreading in the social media that you injured or killed me. Oh tyrants, I’m in a happy state, in good health and in safety.” .


On August 23, 2016, the Nigerian army said that Shekau had been seriously wounded in the shoulder in an air raid in which several commanders were killed. The army’s claim was bolstered when Boko Haram released a video on September 13 without Shekau in it.
