A video that features some suspected Boko Haram fighters has surfaced in Niger State.
According to reports, the video contains images of about 100 individuals claiming to be on the side of embattled sectional leader Abubakar Shekau.
Legit Hausa reports that the video shows about 100 fighters performing eid prayers in the forest.
The video reportedly short in Niger State had three individuals issuing a message.
The report claimed that the insurgents said that: ‘’ we are Jama’atul Ahlul Sunnah lil Dawatul Jihad Niger State chapter, we are issuing warm salutation to our leader Abu Muhammad ibn Muhammad Abubakar Shekau’’
Confirming the video, a security expert Malam Abu Bulama Bukarti reported by Legit Hausa posted a message on his twitter account.
The security situation in other parts of Northern Nigeria is deteriorating and Bukarti was reported to have feared that, if indeed Boko Haram insurgents are in Niger State, then Nigeria is in serious danger.
