A new video released by the Boko Haram insurgents adopts many stylistic features of the hundreds of barbaric videos released by ISIS (Islamic State) over the year.
The insignia ‘west Africa’ at the top-left corner suggests that ISIS has set up a new media wing in the country.
According to Daily Mail, a Somali terror group intends to join ISIS, which would extend its so-called caliphate to East-Africa.
The video also shows the name tags of soldiers killed in the firefight between Boko Haram and army.
The 10 minute video begins with what seems to be an intense firefight against Nigerian troops.
It also shows Boko Haram fighters standing proudly next to the corpses of Nigerian troops and showing off their security badges to the camera.
The video ends with the murder of a captured African Union soldier, who was kneeling in front of three masked Boko Haram members, two of whom pointed AK47s at his head.
The video then cuts to reveal his decapitated body lying motionless on the floor.
Boko Haram is responsible for the deaths of over 10,000 people in Nigeria. The group pledged allegiance its to Islamic State this year.
