Days after the Nigerian released a list declaring Shekau wanted, the Boko Haram leader has appeared in a new video where he spoke on the reconciliation of the terrorist group with the Nigerian government.

According to Human Angle, a conflict reporting website owned by Ahmad Salkida, a Nigerian journalist familiar to have contact with Boko Haram, Shekau spoke on the former Boko Haram desertion fighters.

They have left the fold of religion,” Shekau says about the desertion of ex-fighters, adding that may they never consider such path in their lifetime.

A statement which, therefore, puts aside any chance of reconciliation between his group and the state.
