This new video by Boko Haram sect was released via their twitter handle on twitter. Shekau was shown in unusual clarity in front of a solid blue background, dressed in black and with an automatic weapon resting to his right..
“Allah will not leave you to proceed with these elections even after us, because you are saying that authority is from people to people, which means that people should rule each other, but Allah says that the authority is only to him, only his rule is the one which applies on this land,” he said.
“And finally we say that these elections that you are planning to do, will not happen in peace, even if that costs us our lives ,” he added.
The video, which was titled “A message To The Leaders of the “Disbelievers,” Shekau also had a few words for neighbouring countries that have been trying to fight against them:
“You are claiming that we don’t know how to fight, but we forced your forces to flee from their bases and we freed our imprisoned brothers from the prisons that you oppressed them in, only praise be to Allah.”
