Army dismisses purported boko haram video as propaganda

The Nigerian Army has dismissed the video clip released by boko haram terrorist group leader from an undisclosed location a while ago, describing it as mere propaganda.

We would like to reassure the public that this video is nothing but mere terrorists propaganda aimed at creating fear in the mind of people and to remain relevant. Therefore, there is no cause for alarm, more so as concerted effort in clearing the vestiges of boko haram terrorists wherever they might be hiding is still ongoing.

The Army stated that effort was ongoing to subject the video to forensic analysis.

The Nigerian Army also reiterated that it has captured and occupied the last known stronghold of the terrorists group in the Sambisa forest.

Our gallant troops deployed in various parts of the north east have continued to intensify search for all persons associated with boko haram terrorist group with a view to bring them to justice.

The Army therefore enjoined the public to go about their normal lawful business, remain vigilant and security conscious and report any suspicious person or group of persons to security agencies.
