Reacting to the threat, Brig. Gen. Abubakar said the military had dealt with the sect members that they had migrated to the cyberspace to make empty threats. He called on Nigerians to ignore the threats.
“We don’t have any comment. We know what we have done, and what we are planning to do. The only place they have agenda for now is the social media. The only ground the Boko Haram can go to hide and pretend to be alive is the social media because it is everybody’s home. The so-called video is an attempt by the remnants to remind us that there were once some Boko Haram elements. The issue of the threat to capture PMB is a complete joke and a dream of the century. Therefore, the entire clip should be ignored as everybody is appreciative of our feat against Boko Haram. It is not just an empty threat; it is a threat that has no substance at all. It is a senseless threat from their imagination. Nigeria should simply ignore it.”.he said
