Leader of terrorist group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau has said that he cannot be arrested because he is doing the work of God.
Shekau said this in his latest video where he again taunted the Nigerian Army over their inability to capture him.
The military had on November 11, 2020 kicked off a fresh manhunt for Shekau and other top commanders of the sect.
In the new video, however, Shekau said he will be protected because he was doing the work of God.
“Nobody can apprehend me, because I’m doing God’s work.
“He will protect me like those doing similar work and seeking His protection,” Shekau said in the 30 minutes long video in response to the Nigerian Army’s fresh manhunt for him and his top commanders.
“I’m very sure God will protect my commanders. We are all doing God’s work.”
Shekau was shown in the video sitting in the midst of two of his fighters holding guns.
In the video, shot in a question and answer format, Shekau vowed that the war would continue even after him.
“Arresting me will not stop the work we started. What confuses you is you think the religion is mine but it belongs to Allah,” he said.
He also said members of the group who had joined the amnesty program in the northeast have left the fold of religion.
