Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau released a video message on Tuesday claiming a series of attacks in northeast Nigeria during the festive season.

The shadowy leader released his first video message in months amid a surge in violence casting doubt on the Nigerian government’s claim that the jihadist group is defeated.

‘We are in good health and nothing has happened to us,’ said Shekau in the 31-minute video message spoken in the Hausa language common across northern Nigeria
