Fresh reports reaching Legit.ng is that terrorist group Boko Haram has released a new video showing some military aircraft it allegedly shot down.
This bit of information was tweeted by journalist Ahmad Salkida on Sunday, January 14.

Legit.ng could also not independently verify the existence of the video nor determine its authenticity.
The report of the Boko Haram video comes just as Legit.ng reported that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) received the last batch of military airplanes that it bought from Pakistani military some months ago.
NAF confirmed the receipt of the aircrafts in a statement which was by Air Vice Marshal Olatokunbo Adesanya, the force's Director of Public Relations and Information.
The statement read: "The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) today, 14 January 2018, took delivery of the second batch of Super Mushshak trainer aircraft that the Federal Government had since ordered from Pakistan."
