Shekau, in a 25-minute recording, said “They lied that they have confiscated our arms, that we have been chased out of our territories, that we are in disarray.”Adding that ‘’We are alive, I am alive, this is my voice, more audible than it was before. This is Shekau. Buhari is a liar and has deceived you. The army spokesman is also lying. He and his footsoldiers always run helter-skelter whenever we come face to face with them.”“Buhari, you once claimed that you will crush us in three months. How can you crush us?” Shekau said.
