The Defence Headquarters yesterday described as a joke and dream of the century, a threat made on the life of President Muhammadu Buhari in a new video released yesterday by Boko Haram militants.
Defence spokesman, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, said; “The threat to President Muhammadu Buhari is a complete joke and dream of the century.”
“The only ground Boko Haram can go into, hide and pretend to be alive, is the social media, because it is everybody’s home where sources can hardly be traced. More-so, which Boko Haram, I believe the group is near ending, the video is a complete sign of weakness and poses no threat to us,” he said, adding that the video was an attempt by remnants of the group to remind the public that there were once Boko Haram elements.
Abubakar said the military was committed to wiping out remnants of the group and people shouldn’t be deceived by their use of photoshop.
