We are responsible for attacks - Boko Haram’s Shekau speaks again lailasnews


Abubakar Shekau in the video message, claimed his fighters were responsible for a raid on the military on Monday in Kumshe village, near the Cameroon border, and other attacks in recent days.

“We are responsible for attacks such as those in Kumshe, Gulumba, and other villages where attacks are being carried out in recent days, with the help of Allah,” he said in the eight-minute recording — his first public utterances since July.

Recall that Boko Haram split into two — Shekau’s faction and the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) — in mid-2016 over ideological differences. While Shekau pledged allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the Middle Eastern group gave its formal backing only to ISWAP

Though ISWAP disagreed with Shekau’s indiscriminate use of violence against civilians and vowed to only hit “hard” military or government targets, however the recent execution of two civilian aid workers and the alleged killing of ISWAP’s de facto leader, Mamman Nur, has prompted speculation about a takeover by hardliners, and a possible reconciliation with Shekau’s faction
