Boko Haram leader Shekau reappears in new video, refutes Sambisa fall
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has appeared in a new video to deny claims that the insurgent group has been crushed and flushed out of its Sambisa forest stronghold.

The Boko Haram leader, who was flanked in his usual style by armed fighters, denied defeat of the insurgent group.

“We are safe. We have not been flushed out of anywhere. And tactics and strategies cannot reveal our location except if Allah wills by his decree,” The Guardian quoted Shekau as saying in the video which is said to last 25 minutes.

“You should not be telling lies to the people,” he added before querying “If you indeed crushed us, how can you see me like this? How many times have you killed us in your bogus death?”

Shekau’s denial comes just a day after the Nigerian Army briefed journalists in Maiduguri, Borno state capital about the way the military outfit led other armed forces to take over what is now known as Camp Zero, Boko Haram’s stronghold in Sambisa forest.

Commanding officer of Operation Lafiya Dole Lucky Irabor said at the conference that Shekau’s personal qu’ran and a flag were found at the camp, left behind as he made haste to abandon the camp which was besieged by Nigerian armed forces from all directions.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari announced the fall of Sambisa in a goodwill message to the military on Saturday, December 24.

In the statement, the president said the fall of Sambisa’s Camp Zero was achieved at around 1.35pm a day earlier.

Journalist Salkida, who is usually privy to such videos, reacted in a rather unusual manner on his Twitter handle to reports of the new video by Shekau.

He tweeted:

The authenticity of the video cannot be immediately verified and may have been shot long before the destruction of Camp Zero by the Nigerian armed forces.

On its part, the Nigerian Army has said it is not aware of the existence of such a video.

Nigerian Army’s spokesperson Brigadier-General S.K. Usman, when called by VERGE24.COM for comments on the development on Thursday, December 29, said the military is yet to see the video of Shekau’s denial.

Zambia Deports Zodwa Wabantu for not Putting on Her Panties

Zambia Deports Zodwa Wabantu for not Putting on Her Panties

Zambian immigration authorities on Saturday deported soutry South African dancer Zodwa Wabantu.

The popular erotic dancer was deported because she dances without underwear, the dancer’s promoter said.

Zodwa was billed to perform at an album launch later on Saturday evening, but was sent back when she landed in the morning at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport.

“I can confirm that Zodwa has been deported back to South Africa by the immigration department,” her promoter Lucky Munakampe told AFP, adding no reasons were given for her deportation.

Immigration department officials were not reachable on their phones for comment.

Zambia Deports Zodwa Wabantu for not Putting on Her Panties

Zambia’s religious affairs minister Godfridah Sumaili told AFP last week that Zodwa would not be allowed to perform in the country.

“Zambia is a Christian nation where morality and ethics have to be followed. We don’t expect a woman to dance without underwear,” Sumaili said.

Zambia is a largely conservative country where the majority of people practice Christianity.

Last year the censorship board in neighbouring Zimbabwe barred Wabantu from performing at an annual carnival after a protest by a local actress.

Following a backlash, censorship authorities later backtracked and allowed Wabantu to perform at a private venue, but she refused to go saying she was afraid.
