Defence HQ releases statement on purported video of Shekau in circulation, says its fake

The Nigeria military has reacted to the purported Boko Haram video released earlier today where Shekau or his fake said he was still alive. The military insists that he was killed last month and that the video is fake. Read the statement posted on the Defense HQ website below...
The Defence Headquarters is studying the claims made in the video purportedly released by the terrorists showing their leader Abubakar Shekau as dismissing his death. From immediate observation and what some online news outlets claimed to have seen, the video did not indicate when it was shot neither did it show any proof of life or currency such as screen time or date. 
The video also did not make any reference to anything that has happened since the impostor’s reported death. It is also noteworthy that the air plane said to be mentioned in the video had been missing before he was killed.
It should not surprise anybody if the terrorists decide to manipulate pictures, clone another Shekau or upload a pre-recorded video all in a bid to prove invincible. As far as we are concerned, the individual who was appearing in video and claiming to be the leader of the terrorist group was killed in the Kondunga battle in September.
The resemblance of the corpse and that of the eccentric character was incontrovertible. His identity was equally corroborated by people who knew him before we announced his death. So, while waiting to see the new video before any further statement, our message to them is that justice will be served to whoever bears that name or designation and whoever engages in act.

What or who do we believe.

oghoz said...

is there nothing like DNA to confirm the death of a supposed person.. or is it to expensive for our military to run a DNA confirmation? We are just jokes in the country trying to use physical attributes like forehead to confirm such a thing... Bin laden was not just physically confirmed.. They ran DNA on the damn guy too

I believe the defence HQ on this one excerpt bokoharam show this so called shekau holding a recent news paper or talking about a very specific current event then I will reconsider. God will surely make Nigeria overcome all her challenges and she will be a beacon of light and hope to the world.

Lol! I feel ur pains! But DNA is only useful wen u ve details frm previous test frm the person before hand. Osama was in CIA hence they had his DNA before his arrest! In our case we dnt ve any sound data base to talk of individuals DNA records n finger prints. Plz u guys shud take it easy wit d hate towards ur country!

Oghoz, u run a DNA test against a database to get results. We no even get finger print database not to talk of dental records, blood and body tissue records for all Nigerians. When I had my son in the US, his blood was taken...thats how u can run a test in future to confirm DNA match. It's easy but our govt isn't interested. 1st let them merge records frm the Nigerian passport office, drivers licence, auto registration, national ID card, voters card etc together. In this pool of info, we can get dates of births, finger prints, blood groups, state of origin, residence, details of car(s) owned etc. Then 2ndly we update this with hospital records, work info etc. If we start now in 5 yrs crime control will be easy like in developed countries where finger prints and blood samples from crime scenes can be ran against an already existing database. Naija we hail thee.

@Bonario nnags, you are totally on point. I go with what you said. Either He is dead or alive, what matters is an end to all the evil being perpetrated.

True talk.lets watch and see.but i suspected it was fake because BH took time before coming out to dismiss his death.

Let justice prevail, anyone who poses to be shekua shld be killed untill dere will be no more shekua to pose as.

Anonymous said...

Shekau was killed last year. He 'resurrected' in the person of Abacha Geidam - a confirmed area boy, serial rapist (of underage Chibok girls) and drug addict. FINALLY the imbecile was killed in an ambush laid by Nigerian soldiers in Konduga. Whoever doubts this needs his head examined. The military is 100 per cent right. Shekau is effectively dead. Another double may spring up, though.

Shekau is now a cat with nine lives. DHQ should be sure of what they are saying. They should provide more facts.

Anonymous said...

Computer can do anything nowadays. And something else, one reason why DNA may not be easy to do is that the Nigerian army seemed not to know who the guy was or who his family members were. If before killing him they had known his name and relatives, it would have been easy to get a family member's DNA and compare it to the deceased's. (Anyway, that may not prove much because he may have another relative fighting for BH). However, if they do that now, this so called Shekau will say that is for the other man they killed, not him. They knew John Togo before they killed him and so it was just a matter of collecting samples from relatives for DNA.
