The latest screenshot of Shekau, which was released by Ahmad Salkida, a journalist close to the sect, was gotten from the new video.
Salkida said Shekau recorded the video on Thursday, May 4, 2017, by 1:00pm, few hours after reports said he was injured.
According to the journalist “Shekau boasted that his whereabouts will never be known to authorities and ended the clip with ‘Shekau yananan. Inanan, inanan, inanan.”
