Message to the infidels and the leader of the entire infidels (kafir) who is the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, that he should know we are very strong and doing very good.
''By the will of Allah under the leadership of our leader (Shekau) will capture Buhari with our hands,'' the group said.
