The leader of the Radical Islamic Sect, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau has dismissed Nigerian military claims of his death in a new video.

According to AFP who obtained the video, the Sect leader said his men had implemented strict Islamic law in captured towns.

“Here I am, alive. I will only die the day Allah takes my breath,” Shekau said in the 36-minute video, adding that his group was “running our… Islamic caliphate” and administering sharia punishments.

Nigeria’s military said last week that Shekau was dead and that a man who had been posing as the group’s leader in the videos had been shot dead after fighting with troops in the far northeast.
