… And Boko Haram warns him, says ‘war is just beginning’

A faction of the Nigeria-based terror group Boko Haram has warned US president-elect Donald Trump that “the war has just begun”. The faction leader, Abubakar Shekau, made the comment in an audio recording posted on social media on Sunday.
“Do not be overwhelmed by people like Donald Trump and the global coalition fighting our brethren in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and everywhere. We remain steadfast on our faith and we will not stop. To us, the war has just begun,” Shekau was quoted by the Sahara Reporters website as saying.
“We’re done with Obama, now we’re going to start with Trump… we remain convinced by our faith and we will not stop. For us, the war is just beginning,”Shekau added, according to news agency AFP.
It is also believed that Shekau claimed responsibility for an attack that resulted in the death of some Nigerians soldiers, including Lieutenant-Colonel Muhammad Abu Ali, earlier in November.
The Islamist fighter made the remarks days after Republican Trump defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for the US presidency.
