Boko Haram Leader, Shekau Surfaces in New Video, Mocks Buhari, Jonathan, Buratai

A new video has surfaced in which the most wanted Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, was said to have mocked President Muhammadu Buhari, former President Goodluck Jonathan and Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai
Shekau, who spoke mostly in Arabic language in the video, said he was still alive contrary to claims by the military that he was dead.
This is coming days after Buratai gave the military a 40-day ultimatum to flush out remnants of the sect that has waged a bloody war against the Nigerian State for more than seven years now.
In the video, Shekau reportedly mocked President Buhari and his predecessor, Jonathan.
Shekau also mocked Buratai, who issued the order to get Shekau within 40 days.
Shekau, who is currently being searched for by troops, was rumoured last week to be hiding in the United Nations building in Maiduguri, Borno State, which led troops to invade the building.
