After the release of the audio by Shekau , Nigerians have shared their opinions on social media. Below are reactions from Twitter .
“Sixteen people, including nine children playing football, were killed in the attack on Maiduguri two days ago. Today, Shekau took responsibility and celebrated the death of the victims who have never wronged him in anyway. This beast is the sickest man you can ever find on earth.
“Kidnapping is now the new Ponzi scheme.
Nigerian government sponsored them Bois with #800m and now other groups just cropped up.

Wahala be like shekau.
Killed 7 times
Recovered his Quaran
Recovered his flag
Recovered his palliative warehouse
His men technically defeated
But he is still balling”
“You think Shekau is not accessible? We talk about this Shekau as if we’re talking about Sadaam Hussein who was not accessible by d American’s. Shekau’s terrorist group are Buhari’s boys even bf he became the President. Buhari knows dem one on one. Shekau is acting by d script.”
“As it stands, if Buhari nominates Shekau, Lawan’s 9th Assembly will confirm him, straight up.
The Nigga has, at several occasion, pledges his allegiance to Buhari.
So let’s forget about checks and balance until normalcy is reinstalled in the NASS.”
“I see many people confused about Shekau owning a farm here, do people even understand this area called Sambissa forest and the whole Lake Chad basin?”
“This amnesty proposal go reach shekau… From calling terrorists to Bandits, now they are addressing shekau as a militant Rolling on the floor laughingRolling on the floor laughing 2023 is far…”
“How come Shekau is more honest than the government?”
“BREAKING 7:56am Heavily armed bandits have ATTACKED a Zamfara school. 300 girls have been abducted this morning at Gov sec school Jangebe, Talata Mafara local govt. Zamfara PPRO Shehu said he has NO COMMENT for the media now. This is a DEVELOPING STORY
#bobrisky #lautech Shekau”
“I think Nigeria should split and the north should allow shekau to be thier president. Sincerely, the north deserve a strong man like shekau and not this weak team headed by bubu.”
“So sad that Shekau is on top of its “situation”. He came out with a video 2 days after the attack,claim responsibility & counter (mock) military claim of destroying his farm.
Same tactfullness can only be seen when our govt want to come heavy on placards armed peaceful protest.”

“Lol I was beginning to wonder how Shekau will have a farm inside a war torn Sambisa forest. Nigerian Army has probably looted someone’s farm and claimed it was Shekau’s farm Lmaooooo”
“Lai Mohammed and Muhammadu Buhari once had direct access to Shekau, to be precise Buhari was named the Chief Negotiator to Boko Haram, so what happened?”
