Arab Today, arab today Boko Haram's Shekau: he is 'in good health' following claim of his death

Abubakar Shekau
Abuja - Arab Today

The disputed leader of Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram has released a video message denying a claim by the military that he was killed or badly wounded in air strike last month.

Abubakar Shekau appeared healthy in the video in which he spoke in Arabic, Hausa and the Kanuri language, the BBC reported on Sunday.

It is not clear when it was recorded.

Earlier this month, the Daesh - to which Boko Haram has pledged allegiance - announced that Shekau was being replaced as leader.

Daesh said he had been replaced by the lesser-known Abu Musab Albarnawi, but Shekau said he was still in charge.

"Oh tyrants, I'm in a happy state, in good health and in safety," Shekau said in the 40-minute video posted to YouTube.

In August the Nigerian army said that Shekau had been seriously wounded in the shoulder in an air raid in which several commanders were killed.

The military has yet to comment on the latest video.
