Released Boko Haram commander threatens Buhari, vows to bomb Abuja

After the recent swap deal with Nigeria’s Federal Government, the Abubakar Shekau group of the Boko Haram terrorist sect, has vowed to bomb Abuja.

One of the released commanders also threatened President Muhammadu Buhari.

This was disclosed by Ahmad Salkida, a journalist who said these are contained in a yet to be released video.

Salkida had been declared wanted in the past, and arrested by Nigerian security agencies over alleged ties with the Boko Haram group.

The Federal Government had last weekend in a swap deal released some Boko Haram commanders for 82 Chibok schoolgirls abducted by the dreaded group over three years ago.

However, in a series of tweets on Friday, Salkida, who always reports on the activities of Boko Haram revealed that Shuaibu Moni, one of the Boko Haram commanders swapped with Chibok schoolgirls was the one who issued the threat to bomb Abuja in the yet to be released video.

The tweets read, “Developing story: Abubakar Shekau has just released a video on Chibok girls that were recently swapped with his fighters.

“I will tweet the highlights of the video, yet to be uploaded on YouTube, in a moment.
