SAN FRANCISCO, May 12, (THEWILL) – Ahmad Salkida, a journalist privy to a yet to be released video by Boko Haram has said the terrorist group has threatened to bomb Abuja in a new video.
In a series of tweets on Friday morning (Nigerian time), Salkida said Shuaibu Moni, one of the Boko Haram commanders swapped with Chibok schoolgirls was the one who issued the threat in the video.
Salkida quoted Moni as saying more than five Boko Haram commanders were exchanged for the 82 freed Chibok girls.
Moni said there is no chance of reaching a peace agreement with the federal government.
“Developing story: Abubakar Shekau has just released a video on Chibok girls that were recently swapped with his fighters,” Salkida tweeted @ContactSalkida.
“The video, yet to be uploaded on YouTube was made available to http://Salkida.com . I will tweet the highlights in a moment…
“The video has Shuaibu Moni, one of the swapped BH commanders issuing threats to Nigerian authorities and it’s president.
“The commander, in the video, declared that it is not true that only 5 commanders were released, warning of imminent bombing of Abuja.
“He further said that there’s been no ‘sulhu’ dialogue with govt and there won’t be. Only war is between us, he declared.”
THEWILL recalls that 82 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by the Boko Haram were returned in a swap deal some days back following negotiations with authorities.
