Militant outfit Boko Haram has released a new video on the insurgency in Nigeria in which its leader Abubakar Shekau continues to remain missing.

According to the BBC, Shekau had failed to appear in a Boko Haram video released in June and his continued absence has increased speculation about his fate.

In the eight-minute video, an unidentified young man spoke in the name of the Islamic State in West Africa, saying ‘we are still present everywhere we had been before’ and calling on people to be patient.

The video showed the militants attacking a security checkpoint, seizing weapons, and slitting the throat of a man dressed in a police uniform.
