Shekau stated this in a 30-minute video seen by HumAngle in response to the Nigerian Army’s fresh manhunt for him and other Boko Haram leaders who have been terrorizing the northern part of the country.

In the video, Shekau who was shown sitting circled by two of his fighters holding guns in a less spacious room, said God would protect him, warning that the war against the government would continue even after him.

“Nobody can apprehend me because I’m doing God’s work. He will protect me like those doing similar work and seeking His protection. I’m very sure God will protect my commanders. We are all doing God’s work.

“Arresting me will not stop the work we started. What confuses you is you think the religion is mine but it belongs to Allah,” he said.

He also spoke on the members of Boko Haram who recanted from the group and joined the amnesty program in the northeast. “They have left the fold of religion,” Shekau said of the ex-fighters.

He, however, said he and his men would never consider such a path in their lifetime, putting aside any chance of reconciliation between his group and the state.

Shekau mocked Nigerian military in the video saying that they repeatedly told people that he was killed even though he is still alive.

He attributed economic hardships in Nigeria to God’s vengeance against the country for its war against Boko Haram and it’s members.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Nigeria Army had last Wednesday kicked off a manhunt for the fourth batch of 86 wanted Boko Haram leaders.

Some of the names which appeared on the lists including Abubakar Shekau, Abu Mus’ab Al- Barnawi, Modu Sulum, Umaru Tela, Iman Balge, Abu Umma, Mallam Bako(Hisbah), Abu Dardda, Ibrahim Abu Maryam amongst many others.
