Video: You can’t find me – Boko Haram leader, Shekau reacts to $7m bounty on him by US

Abubakar Shekau, the leader Boko Haram terrorist group, has boasted that no one can find him despite the $7 million rewards the US Department of State promised to give to anyone with credible information that will lead to his arrest.
The Department of State made the announcement on March 4th. Media personality @Bassim_AMG who covers reports on Terrorism shared a video of the sect leader reacting to the $7 million bounties placed on him. According to the media personality, Shekau in a 26 minutes video, reiterated his views on ”US, Israel and Nigeria being infidel states with the US being the headquarters of corruption.” The sect leader also reportedly said the US is fighting Islam in every possible way and questioned the US for putting up only N2.5bn or $7m as a reward for his arrest. Shekau is also quoted as claiming that the US cannot find him. He, however, stated that he is also not scared for them to find him as long as he is not an “infidel”. He celebrated the bounty by sporadically shooting a few rifles and a machine gun. Watch the video he posted and the Tweets from the media personality below.
