The attack was carried out on the same day a new video was released by Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram’s factional leader, reiterating his intention to continue the insurgency.

According to an analyst at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, Audu Bukarti, the “video is intended to recruit fighters, funders and sympathizers.”

He added: “It demonstrates that Shekau is alive and that he’s committed to his group’s ideology as always.”
