In a new audio message obtained exclusively by SaharaReporters on Monday, the factional leader of Boko Haram terrorist sect, Abubakar Shekau, has indirectly claimed responsibility for the attack that led to the recent killing of a gallant Nigerian Army officer, Lt-Col. Muhammad Abu Ali.
While Shekau did not specifically mention Lieutenant-Colonel Ali’s name in the audio message, he, however, claimed that his faction of Boko Haram is responsible for all the recent attacks on the Nigerian military.
“We are responsible for these recent attacks. We did it and will do more,” Shekau said in the audio message.
He also boasted that the sect would start confronting US President-elect, Donald Trump, once it finishes with outgoing President Barack Obama. He condemned the King of Saudi Arabia for congratulating Trump on his electoral victory.
