Abubakar Shekau, the embattled leader of jihadist group Boko Haram has appeared in a new video rejecting claims by the Nigerian army that he had been seriously wounded.

You have been spreading in the social media that you injured or killed me,” Shekau said in the video released on YouTube and dated September 25.

Oh tyrants, I’m in a happy state, in good health and in safety.

The Nigerian army said on August 23 that the longtime militant chief had been seriously wounded in the shoulder in an air raid in which several commanders were killed.

Shekau has been reported dead several times before, but the army’s latest claim was bolstered when Boko Haram released a video on September 13 without Shekau in it.

However, in the video released Sunday, Shekau points to a date on an Islamic calendar corresponding to September 25, 2016.

Speaking in Hausa, Arabic and English and Kanuri he appears to be in good physical health.

He uses the video to issue threats against President Muhammadu Buhari, who appealed to the United Nations this week for help in negotiating the release of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by the militants more than two years ago.

If you want your girls, bring back our brethren,” Shekau says.
