Boko Haram video clip, mere propaganda — Army

Late trending report as the Nigerian Army on Saturday said threats issued by recently released Boko Haram members in a video clip distributed by the group is just propaganda and should be ignored.

A statement by Army spokesman Brigadier General Sani Usan said the attention of Nigerian Army has been drawn to two video clips released by one of the released Boko Haram terrorists in exchange for the abducted Chibok school girls. 
He said: "in the first clip the terrorist, among other things, made boastful and spurious allegations, while the second clip was about alleged indoctrination of
some of the abducted Chibok school girls in captivity." 
He added that: "We wish to state that the terrorist has lost touch with current realities. It was aimed at seeking relevance and attention."
"As you are all aware, he was a direct beneficiary of the process that led to the release of 82 of the abducted girls, and does not have a say or capacity to do anything, therefore his threats should be ignored." Usman said.
He further said: "We would like to assure the public that the Nigerian Army is totally committed to the Federal Government’s determined efforts of rescuing all abducted persons and peace in the country."
He said the army would not relent efforts of clearing the remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists through the ongoing clearance operations. 
He also said the Nigerian Air Force is unrelenting in its bombardment while other Security Agencies are equally doing their best. 
He said: "Therefore, we wish to solicit for more support, cooperation and understanding of the public, particularly members of the Press."
"We should not give in to terrorists’ propaganda and empty threats. We have come to a very critical stage of the fight against terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria that require more patriotism and security consciousness by all and sundry.
"Gone were the days when people glamorize terrorists and their criminal acts," The Army statement said.
