He accused the President of lying to Nigerians on the progress made in the fight about terrorism in the country.
On Saturday, authorities of the country’s military claimed they were winning the war against terrorism in Nigeria, adding that they have forced the Boko Haram group to flee their camps and that they have caused severe damage to the group.
But in the latest audio, Shekau, who has not been seen on video since February and until an audio message in August, stated in the 25-minute recording in Hausa and Arabic that, “They (the military) lied that they have confiscated our arms, that we have been chased out of our territories, that we are in disarray.
He further said, “We are alive, I am alive, this is my voice, more audible than it was before. This is Shekau.
“Buhari is a liar and has deceived you. The army spokesman is also lying. He and his foot soldiers always run helter-skelter whenever we come face to face with them.
“Buhari, you once claimed that you will crush us in three months. How can you crush us?”
The Boko Haram leader further reiterated Boko Haram’s allegiance to the ISIS group, saying they are “loyal and subservient” to IS leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
