The military high command has dismissed the current video released by Boko Haram, saying it was Photoshopped.

The Acting Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar, said the video clip lacks credibility.

Boko Haram, in a video which it released on YouTube on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, threatened to capture President Buhari.

Abubakar also told Nigerians to ignore the terrorists, adding that the Army has the capability to dismantle the sect.

He assured the nation that the military onslaught will continue, and told Boko Haram members to surrender for their good.

According to Punch, Abubakar said “Much as the Nigerian Armed Forces would have allowed the ranting of the Boko Haram in its latest video clip to go without formal reaction, it becomes necessary to make some comments to douse the apprehension of the Nigerian citizens concerning the outburst in the clip.

“It is important to state here that the video clip is diversionary and a desperate attempt by the dying Boko Haram sect to remain relevant.  The video clip is a complete show of weakness and sign that the end is near for the insurgents, hence it does not in any way pose a threat to us.

“The military is equally not deterred by the photoshopped assemblage of worshippers at the supposed Eid-El Kabir prayer which is a replica of the video clip released by the sect in 2014.  This has cast aspersion to the credibility of the clip and therefore should be disregarded.”

Recently, members of the Shekau faction had engaged Abu Musab al-Barnawi team in a bloody clash in Monguno area of Borno State.
