Ahmad Salkida, a journalist known to have access to Boko Haram’s leadership, has claimed that the insurgents observed Eid prayers over the weekend.
In a tweet on Monday, Salkida posted a collage of images showing the insurgents praying, led by their leader, Abubakar Shekau.
According to him, the pictures were obtained from a new video released by the sect.
“#BokoHaram observed #EidPrayers despite unrelenting airstrikes by the #NigerianAirforce.
“A video released moments ago by the #AbubakarShekau led group shows hundreds of fighters and villagers praying in an open field, apparently between the Nigerian Cameroon border,” Salkida wrote.
