The Boko Haram terrorists in a flagrant show of defiance have again openly celebrated this Year’s Eid-el-Fitr in Sambisa Forest.
The five minute, 17 second video footage seen by NAN correspondent in Maiduguri shows the terrorists and their families dressed in festival attires, performing salat after completing 29 days of fasting.
The video is believed to have been shot in Sambisa Forest, the sect’s notorious stronghold in Borno State.
One of the terrorists who did not disclose his identity thanked God for sparing his life.
”Praise be to Almighty Allah for giving us the opportunity to pray Eid-Fitr under the leadership of our leader Abubakar Shekau.
“We want the world to know that we are alive and happy to witness this festive occasion.
Another terrorist also spoke the same way, saying there will be “more trouble to the infidels.

“We want our enemies to know that we are celebrating Sallah in Sambisa and we shall continue to wage war untill we score victory against the infidels.”
It was learnt that the terrorists belong to the Shekau camp, although he was not at the prayer.
The Nigerian military recently said it has embarked on Operation Last Push to flush the terrorists from their hiding places around the fringes of Lake Chad.
