New Boko Haram Video Shows Beheading Of Nigeria Pilot – AP


New Boko Haram Video Shows Beheading Of Nigeria Pilot – AP

Boko Haram, the extremist Islamic group in Nigeria, has published a
video that shows a charred plane wreckage and the beheading of a man
identified as a pilot of a missing Nigerian Air Force jet, bolstering
the group’s claims that it shot down a fighter plane.

The video
also allegedly features Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, a man
Nigeria’s military twice has claimed to kill – first in 2009 and again
last year. Two weeks ago the military said they had killed a Shekau
lookalike who had posed in the group’s videos.

“Here I am, alive,
and I will remain alive until the day Allah takes away my breath,” the
man said in the Hausa language. “Even if you kill me … it will not stop
us imposing Islamic rule … We are still in our Islamic State, reigning
and teaching the Quran.”

The United States still has a $7 million
bounty on Shekau’s head. The video was made available to The Associated
Press through the same channels used previously and seems to show the
same man. Nigeria’s Defense Headquarters suggested in a blog that the
insurgents had manipulated images and cloned “another Shekau.”

the video, the man identified as Shekau said Boko Haram is implementing a
strict Shariah law in northeast Nigeria under its control. Examples
were shown, including the stoning to death of a man apparently accused
of adultery; the amputation of the hand of a young man accused of theft;
the lashings of a man and what appears to be a girl covered in a hijab.

video ended with the show ing of burnt plane parts in a rugged bush.
Two pilots and an Alpha jet have been missing since September 11 when it
left the northeastern town of Yola on a bombing mission against Boko

The video shows a kneeling man in a camouflage vest with
his right hand in a sling, with a fighter hovering over him with an axe
which was later used in the beheading.
Speaking in English, the
victim identified himself as a wing commander in the Nigerian Air Force
and said he was undertaking a mission in Kauri area of northeast Borno
“We were shot down and our aircraft crashed. To this day, I don’t know the whereabouts of my second pilot,” he said.

The insurgents have stolen military hardware from Nigerian forces, probably including anti-aircraft weapons.

the Nigerian military has shrugged-off the purported beheading of a
pilot in a video currently trending in cyberspace as a common antic of
terrorists to show extreme violent acts to demoralise citizens.
a tweet by the director of defence information, Major General Chris
Olukolade, the military declared that the act would not deter troops
from comprehensively routing terrorists from their hideouts.
military assured Nigerians that no level or amount of barbaric display
of bestial atrocities would distract the Nigerian military from
sustaining the tempo of on-going operations to decimate, degrade and
bring the remnants of the terrorists already in disarray to justice.
