“My brothers in Islam, I want to address you in Hausa language.
“The likes of Buhari, Idris Deby (Chad’s president) with his goat-like eyes and the people of Niger, Africa, and the entire world, listen to me now.
“I am alive and healthy. But you should know that if my days of living were over, you wouldn’t have seen me here.
“Prophet Muhammad (SAW) have been tested with similar hatred because of the religion of Allah.
“We are not sociologist, we are Quranists, and we follow the Hadith and those who came before us.
“All of you the Hausa people, The Kanuri People and Miyetti Allah, so you think democracy is a religion?
“Buhari you are worshiping cows, you better worship Allah.
“Oh my brother Buhari, anywhere you are you should turn to the Quran, turn to the Hadith of the prophet, anywhere you are turn to Allah.
“Prophet Muhammad forbade us from using any plate used by a Jew without washing it first.
“He also forbade you from wearing the dress of the Jews. He told us not to take money from them.
“Buhari, all your actions are fake.
“You are lying to the people, collecting their money and saying you will free their children and you know you are lying.
“Buhari, Buhari, your people will soon betray you for all this lies. I am talking to you Buhari, sit back and think carefully.
“It is not this small Shekau that is disturbing you. No. It is Allah that is doing everything for us, continue and see.
“You deceived the people and you think you are doing the right thing. One day you will not even be able to go to the toilet and stool.
“But if you repent, then you are a brother. Repent and follow the Quran. Buhari let me advise you now: fear Allah.
“This is the same Shekau and I am good and healthy.
