New Boko Haram video ‘signals group’s demise’


A senior Nigerian military officer says the latest video released by the leader of the Boko Haram militants, Abubakar Shekau, signals the end of the jihadist group.

An unnamed officer in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri told the AFP news agency that: “Watching Shekau in this video, the message is clear: the game is over.

“For this arrogant and boastful terrorist to speak in such a meek and subdued tone shows he has been trounced beyond his imagination.

“It is a farewell video,” he added.

Nigeria’s military said it was subjecting the video to “thorough forensic investigation”.

The video was Mr Shekau’s first appearance in more than year.
