Shekau, in a three-minute video released on Tuesday, said his group “killed 78 farmers” because they arrested
and handed one of his brothers to the Nigerian Army.
He warned that those arresting his members and giving out intelligence on the group’s activities to the military
would “face the same fate if they did not desist from doing so.”
“The third message is on those who notoriously nab our brethren and hand them to the military or give them a
clue on us. You should know that, unless you repent, what happened to your people is awaiting you.” he
