Boko Haram hasn’t been in the news much, but now there’s this gruesome update:

This is important because it suggests that Boko Haram was able to shoot down the Nigerian military airplane, which the Nigerian government had denied.

And the video also allegedly shows that the now twice-declared-dead-by-the-Nigerian-government leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekauis, is very much alive:

Not funny: Boko Haram video shows Abubakar Shekau alive, but Nigerian Army insists the man is DEAD. #nonfootballtweet pic.twitter.com/EUbpBWJOV7

Nigeria’s response?

Nigeria’s Defense Headquarters suggested in a blog that the insurgents had manipulated images and cloned “another Shekau.”

Exit question: Do we believe Nigeria’s claim that it has stopped the Ebola epidemic in “it its tracks” in light of their past claims about Boko Haram?

After nearly two dozen Ebola cases, Nigeria appears to have stopped the virus in its tracks. http://t.co/AfyL0GN1Zk

And this is a happy thought to keep in the back of your mind:

If Boko Haram or IS wanted to use Ebola as a weapon it would be ridiculously easy to obtain & deploy -just matter few crazies willing to die
