Boko Haram Militants Threaten to Capture South African President

In a video that is making rounds on the Internet, Boko Haram leaders are seen making threats to capture and kidnap the President of South Africa, Mr. Jacob Zuma.

The 2 minute clips follows the one the group of militants released earlier this week, threatening to capture and slaughter president Buhari of Nigeria.

Boko Haram released a video Tuesday celebrating the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha and threatening to “capture” Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.

The almost-13 minute film, posted on YouTube and circulated via social media, shows large numbers of people, including children, gathering for what appear to be Eid prayers in several unknown locations. The video shows various groups of people praying in a mosque
and in an outdoor clearing Monday, according to the narrator, which was the day of the Islamic feast.

It is still unclear what their motive is and how they plan to capture Zuma, but rumors have emerged claiming that they might have members working in Pretoria, South Africa.

The South African police are investigating the matter.
