The Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, has reacted to Boko Haram's threat against the Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari and the Army Chief.
Brigadier General Abubakar urged Nigerians to ignore the sect describing the threat as empty, lacking in substance and a joke.
He said the military had dealt with the insurgents in such a way that they had migrated to the cyberspace to make empty threats.
Brigadier General Abubakar said that the latest video by the insurgents was an attempt to remind Nigerians that they once existed.
He stressed that the military was aware of what it had done and was still planning to do to the insurgent group.
Abubakar, who described the video as a sign of weakness, said the threat posed by the group was almost being brought to an end.
He said: "We don't have any comment. We know what we have done, and what we are planning to do. The only place they have agenda for now is the social media.
"The only ground the Boko Haram can go to hide and pretend to be alive is the social media because it is everybody's home.
"The so called video is an attempt by the remnants to remind us that there were once some Boko Haram elements.
"The issue of the threat to capture PMB is a complete joke and a dream of the century. Therefore, the entire clip should be ignored, as everybody is appreciative of our feat against Boko Haram.
"It is not just an empty threat; it is a threat that has no substance at all. It is a senseless threat from their imagination. Nigeria should simply ignore it."
A faction of Boko Haram loyal to Abubakar Shekau released a new video in which it threatened to capture or kill President Buhari.
The sect also threatened to deal with the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai.
