Abubakar Shekau

The Leader of the dreaded Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has today claimed responsibility for the attacks on the Composite Group Air force Base in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital that occurred on 2nd December.

Abubakar Shekau made this revelation in a 40 minutes video which was obtained by newsmen through intermediaries, spoke in Arabic, Hausa and Kanuri in which he claimed victory over Nigerian forces and vowed to extend what he described as ?Crusade? to the shores of the United States of America.

The Boko Haram terrorists it would be recalled attacked the 79 Composite Group of the Nigerian Air Force in Maiduguri, destroying five aircrafts and many buildings as well as the 333 Artillery
Regiment also in Maiduguri where many buildings and vehicles were destroyed and burnt.

Meanwhile the Nigerian Army had insisted the military troops were able to inflict serious casualties on the terrorists and claimed that 25 insurgents were killed but the Boko Haram leader, Shekau in the new video said he only lost seven of his men but killed ?many soldiers?.

Shekau further said, ?This message is intended as a glad tiding. Allah the Almighty has given us victory in the attack we launched inside Maiduguri (which was) called Borno in ancient times.

?We stormed the city and fought them (and) Allah blessed us with lots of booty. Three of our men carried out suicide bombings, three of our men died from bullets, one of them died from friendly fire and not from your bullet. May Allah accept them as Martyrs and may we attain such honour.

Shekau also launched a tirade of insults at the US government on its recent declaration labeling the sect as a terrorist organization. Shekau declared”Useless, stupid America! If you could do
anything you would have done it in your country. Vagabond. You are boasting you are going to join force with Nigeria to crush us, bloody liars.You couldn?t crush us when we were carrying sticks. Is it today when we storm your barracks and commandeered your things one after the other?

?By Allah we will never stop. Don?t think we will stop in Maiduguri tomorrow you will see us in
America itself. Our operation is not confined to Nigeria, it is for the whole world,? Shekau said.
