Boko Haram Releases Video of Beheading of Nigerian Pilot

Boko Haram released a video today showing the beheading of a Nigerian pilot.
The terror group also released video of leader Abubakar Shekau who was thought to be dead.

CBS News reported:

A new Boko Haram video shows the beheading of a man identified as the pilot of a missing Nigerian Air Force jet and burnt out parts of a plane – the first indication that Nigeria’s homegrown Islamic extremist group has the capability to bring down aircraft.

It also allegedly features Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, a man Nigeria’s military twice has claimed to kill in 2009 and again last year. Two weeks ago the military said they had killed in battle a Shekau lookalike who had posed in the group’s videos.

“Here I am, alive and I will remain alive until the day Allah takes away my breath,” the man says in the Hausa language. “Even if you kill me … it will not stop us imposing Islamic rule … We are still in our Islamic state, reigning and teaching the Koran.”

The United States still has a $7 million ransom on Shekau’s head, despite the death claims.
