Nigerian terror group Boko Haram has released a new video claiming it has not been affected by an ongoing regional offensive aimed at curbing terrorism. The footage shows an unidentified man reaffirming the allegiance with Islamic State (Isis) and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The man, who spoke in Hausa and in Arabic, denied the militants are surrendering to the Nigerian army, contrary to what the military had claimed. The militant also denied troops freed women and children kidnapped by the terrorists, known for abducting civilians and forcing them to carry out suicide bombings, according to the BBC.

According to David Otto, CEO of UK-based global security provider TGS Intelligence Consultants, Boko Haram timed the video to be published as the government's claims of successful anti-terrorism operations are increasing.

"This video will give confidence to its supporters and militants scattered around Nigeria and neighbouring states that the group is still alive and well and that the military pronouncements is propaganda only,"
