It seems that the Boko Haram group led by Abubakar Shekau have decided to increase the intensity of their actions.
According to The News, In a 9 minute video released by the terror group via their twitter page, Abubakar Shekau vowed to disrupt Nigeria’s general election. He was quoted to have said in Hausa, “This election will not be held even if we are dead. Even if we are not alive Allah will never allow you to do it”.
Despite Shekau’s threat, experts doubt that the Islamist rebels have the capacity to disrupt voting nationwide, although election officials have conceded that voting could prove impossible in parts of the northeast.
