Translation of comments made by a Boko Haram commander after the interrogation

This is a brief message from brothers to non-believers in order to annoy them.

You, Buhari: here are your errands spies who you sent, and Allah exposed them to us.

We will not set them free because Allah said hypocrites should be killed. We want to obey Allah by doing what he ordered us to do and desist from what he asked us not to do.

Let me be brief. You, the unbeliever, should understand that Allah will protect his empire whether you like it or not. He will surely protect his empire.

Under your watch we will be victorious, God willing, and there is nothing you can do. This is all I have to say.

The video showed how one of the suspected spies was beheaded while the remaining two were shot at close range.
