The leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has sent President Muhammadu Buhari a warning, telling him never to return to Borno.

The leader of the sect conspicuously told Buhari in a video that his members are fully on ground in the North-East.

He said they will attack Buhari if he visits Borno again. “Buhari came to Maiduguri pretending to be a good man. He shouldn’t try it again,” Shekau said in the Hausa language.

Speaking further, he gave a condition for Chibok girls’ release, noting that the schoolgirls would be set free if the federal government let go of the sect members currently in detention.

Recall that in April 2014, the sects abducted about 276 female students from Chibok Girls Secondary School. Since then,  Boko Haram has released few and had retained others including Leah Shaibu, a Christian amongst them.

However, the group launched another attack hours after Buhari paid a condolence visit to the state over the killing of 30 persons in Auno, a community near Maiduguri, on Sunday.
