The Defence Headquarters has urged Nigerians to ignore the threat by the Boko Haram sect that it would capture President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Boko Haram sect had in a newly released video on Wednesday vowed on behalf of its members to continue to unleash terror on Nigerians.
In a direct message to President Buhari, the sect’s leader who did not give his name said, “This is a message to the leader of the infidels (President Muhammadu) Buhari, who says he will crush us. Infidels before him made similar threats, Buhari who says he will crush us; in sha Allah (by the grace of Allah) he will only die.
Reacting, however, the Acting Director Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar, described the threat as empty, lacking in substance and a joke.
He noted that the latest video by the insurgents was an attempt to remind Nigerians that they once existed.
