Boko Haram: a�?I am tired of this calamity,a�? Shekau says in new video

The Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has said in a new video that he is tired of the calamity befalling his group.
a�?I am tired of this calamity; it is better I die and go to rest in paradise,a�? he said at the end of the 10-minute video.
Premium Times reports that in the video, delivered chiefly in Hausa, Shekau couldna��t hide his frustration on the continued hostility and loss of his supporters to government troops.
With a broken voice that clearly betrayed his emotion, he pleaded with his non-combatant members across Nigeria to pick up arms and help him fight till he drops dead.
The terror groupa��s leader, however, remained defiant.
Flanked by two hooded armed men, Shekau said the latest claim by the military that the group had been sent packing from Sambisa forest was false.
He boasted that he is still in Sambisa forest and still controls the territory, adding that his men would continue to fight regardless of the recent induction of Cameroonian soldiers into the Operation Lafiya Dole counter insurgency force.
