The leader of the insurgents Sect, Abubakar Shehkau, has vowed to disrupt the 2015 elections.
He made the declaration in a video released via Twitter on Tuesday.
“This election will not be held even if we are dead. Even if we are not alive Allah will never allow you to do it,” Shehkau said.
According to newspaper reports, it is highly unlikely that the insurgents have the capacity to disrupt elections happening nationwide. However, the voting process may be difficult to execute in parts of the northeast.
