The leader of the dreaded Boko  Haram Abubakar Shekau, has refuted all claims by Nigerian military that he has been wounded or  killed saying, "I am alive and well."

In two videos just obtained by SaharaReporters, Shekau also said he is not done with waging war against the Nigerian government.

"I am not wounded, I am ready to fight and will continue to fight,"  he said as he read from a prepared speech in  Hausa and flanked left and right by well-armed lieutenants. 

Shekau also claimed responsibility for the air force helicopter that crashed recently which the military authority claimed down as result of technical issues. 

The video also showed some girls alleged to be some of the remaining Chibok School Girls saying that they are not willing to go home because they have been converted to Islam. The Boko Haram video also paraded some women believed to be police officers who were abducted in June 2017, the women sobbed as a Boko Haram speaker recited the Qur'an before asking some of them to speak on video, it appears they're under duress as they were surrounded by armed Boko Haram fighters.
