In a message delivered in Hausa by their leader, Boko Haram threatened to capture President Muhammadu Buhari among other things.
“This is our eid prayer from us and by the support of our leader Imam Abubakar Al-Shekau. We are extending our greetings to our people and fighters. Message to the infidels and the leader of the entire infidels (kafir) who is the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, that he should know we are very strong and doing very good. By the will of Allah under the leadership of our leader (Shekau) will capture Buhari with our hands,” the group leader said.
The terrorist group has been wrecking havoc in the north east, and a female suicide bomber was recently killed soldiers during the sallah celebrations.
