Ibrahim Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram sect, has reacted after his fighters suffered heavy defeat, following an ambush by Chadian troops.
Shekau begged the Chadian troops to leave his fighters alone, stressing that Prophet Muhammed will help the insurgents in their fight.
However, the Boko Haram leader in a viral audio, urged his fighters not to run despite suffering heavy casualties.
Shekau lamented that the attack was not approved by the Qur’an.
He said: “People of Chad, leave us alone, this operation is not approved by the Qur’an. It is not the will of the Prophet Muhammed but if you want to continue, God will help us too because he is bigger than you.
“To my fighters, take heart. It is I, Abubakar Shekau, your leader.”
