Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau has reacted to the $7m reward the US Department of State recently announced for anyone with credible information that will lead to his arrest. The Department of State made the announcement on March 4th.
Media personality @Bassim_AMG who covers reports on Terrorism, shared a video of the sect leader reacting to the $7 million bounty placed on him. According to the media personality, Shekau in a 26 minutes video, reiterated his views on ”US, Israel and Nigeria being infidel states with US being the headquarters of corruption.” The sect leader also reportedly said the US is fighting Islam in every possible way and questioned the US for putting up only N2.5bn or $7m as reward for his arrest.
Shekau is also quoted as claiming that the US cannot find him. He however stated that he is also not scared for them to find him as long as he is not an “infidel”. He celebrated the bounty by sporadically shooting a few rifles and a machine gun.
