Army laughs off Boko Haram's threat to capture President Buhari

The Nigerian Army has described the vow made by Boko Haram leaders to capture President Muhammadu Buhari in a recent propaganda video as a sign of weakness, and one which presents no threat to the military or the Nigerian leader.

Reacting to the video, General Rabe Abubakar, Defence Headquarters’ spokesman who spoke to Daily Trust on Wednesday, said:

“The only ground Boko Haram can go into, hide and pretend to be alive, is the social media, because it is everybody’s home where sources can hardly be traced.

“More-so, which Boko Haram? I believe the group is near ending, the video is a complete sign of weakness and poses no threat to us.”
