Boko Haram have released another video in which insurgents were depicted celebrating Sallah, which was marked on Thursday, September 24.
Still photos taken from the video and made available by Sahara Reporters show the terrorists gathering in an open field for the celebration.
The militants are shown calmly saying Eid prayers together with their relatives. Rifles can be also seen in the snapshots with one of them leading the prayers. It was however not possible to ascertain the date the video was released.
The images might be linked with the sect’s recent attempt to dismiss the statements by the Nigerian army about the successful counter-terrorism operations in the northeast.

Recall that earlier this month Boko Haram released an audio message in which a man purporting to be Abubakar Shekau, group’s leader dismissed claims by the Nigerian military and President Muhammadu Buhari that Boko Haram were being defeated .
He also mocked the president’s order to the service chiefs to crush the sect within three months.
