The Presidency led by President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the trending video showing the leader of Boko Haram terrorist group, threatening President Buhari, Nigeria’s minister and journalists.
Eye9ja recalls that the leader of the group had released a series of videos threatening and mocking President Buhari and others.
While reacting to the now-viral video, the Personal Assistant to the President on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has said threats by the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau, shows that Buhari is working.
Recall that while speaking in a combination of Hausa, Arabic and Kanuri, the leader of the terrorist group also condemned western education and democracy which he said were alien to the Prophet of Islam and his followers. The leader of the terrorist group claimed the video was created on Thursday, February 13, 2020.
On President Buhari, Shekau said: “President Buhari, you said you are almost 80 years old and you are busy going about, and now your people have started booing, right? You just wait for your angels of death,” the Boko Haram leader said.
He added while speaking in Hausa as thus; “President Buhari, simply because some persons told you that they have killed our commanders, so now you are emboldened and you want to kill Shekau, right? Who is Shekau, a small person to you? But you are now in trouble Mr Buhari; you are in big trouble. I am still here, that little boy that has defied the leaders of the world. I am still around, you just wait, it will soon be over before we all meet in the hereafter.”
The Boko Haram leader also threatened the Minister of Communication and digital economy, Isa Pantami over the restriction on registration of Sim.
But reacting in a post on her Twitter page, Onochie said the Buhari-led government was fighting insecurity and crippling Boko Haram.
She wrote: “Some of us think this government is not tackling insecurity.
“Boko Haram’s Shekau is expressing frustration by threatening to kill Hon. Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Sheik Isa Pantami.
“The SIM Card registration and restriction policy are affecting them.”
