Boko Haram video claims October 24 attack that killed 35

By AFP

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) - Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video released Sunday that he led an October 24 attack in which 35 people found in military uniform were killed in the Nigerian city of Damaturu.

"Look at what happened in Damaturu (capital of northeastern Yobe state)," the head of the Islamist group said in the video obtained by AFP through the same intermediary as previous clips. "Since we killed them with our hands -- in fact I was the commander of the operation -- so, you cannot say I'm making conjecture."
