In the 16-minute video, given to AFP through similar channels as past messages, Boko Haram chief Abubakar Shekau also voices support for the extremist Sunni Islamic State (IS) militants who have taken over large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.
He also mocks the social media campaign Bring Back Our Girls which emerged to call attention to the plight of the more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped on April 14 by the Islamists from the remote northeastern town of Chibok.
"We were the ones who detonated the bomb in filthy Abuja," Shekau said, referring to the attack a popular shopping centre that killed at least 22 people.
Later that day, a huge blast rocked the Apapa port district of Lagos, which the authorities blamed on cooking gas explosion, with no casualties.
An AFP investigation has revealed the blast was a deliberate attack involving high explosives.
"A bomb went off in Lagos. I ordered (the bomber) who went and detonated it," Shekau says in the video, which shows him flanked by at least ten gunmen in front of two armoured personnel carriers and two pickup trucks.
"You said it was a fire incident," he added. "Well, if you hide it from people you can't hide it from Allah."
Near the beginning of the video he calls several of the world's most prominent Islamist extremists his "brethren."
"May Allah protect you" he said, listing IS chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Al-Qaeda head Ayman al-Zawahiri, Taliban
leader Mullah Omar and several

With this one can confidently say the two love birds are back together coupled with his surprise romantic birthday gift to her last month, June 14th.
Ann, a family member told ABsource that Effiong was found hanging in his room at Diamond Hill, a few minutes after he collected a rope from neighbours who became suspicious soon after he went inside his room with the rope wondering what he wanted to use it for.
According to the source, when his mother Grace Otu, a nurse at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital left the house at about 3pm on that fateful day, the young man borrowed a rope and killed himself.
According Ann: "The 10th of July was the 10th anniversary of his father's death in a car accident and after the anniversary and everyone had left the house including his mother, he went to a neighbour and borrowed a rope which he took to his room and hung himself."
Ann said: "The neighbours became suspicious of what he was doing in his room with the rope and decided to rush there but found the door to the room locked and before they could force the door open he had died."
She said before he hung himself, he called one of his friends, Adu on phone requesting him to tell his girl friend, Blessing who works with the UNICEM that she should now be happy that he has killed himself for her.
"Before his friend could rush to the house, the door had already been forced open by neighbours and Effiong's body was hanging from the ceiling of the house".
Ann stated that Effiong was an only son of the family and was given the late father's name as a source of succor for the family but "he has again left us by this thoughtless action"
Perhaps to give an inkling of his planned action, Effiong had posted on his facebook page on the 6th of July the following message "It's not about being engaged, married or in a relationship.
It's about being happy, safe, secured, relieved and feeling good. It's about peaceful state of mind, it's about sleeping at night without the fear of losing what you've got.
It's being yourself and not someone else, it's about feeling loved, happy, respected, understood, cared for and appreciated.! Goodnight my beautiful people!!
Efforts to speak with Hogan Bassey, the Cross River State Police Public Relations Officer did not yield any success as his phone was switched off. Effiong's body has been removed and de[posited at the mortuary of the General Hospital, Calabar.

The judge dismissed the application for lack of merit and abuse of court processes.
In his ruling, Justice Akapo upheld the prosecution's argument that "the issue of sufficiency of proof of evidence cannot be raised until the prosecution had closed its case". According to the judge, "this argument is vital and renders the application premature".
It would be recalled that, EFCC counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, had argued that the application to quash the charges against Tukur and Ochonogor was premature since the substantive suit was yet to considered.
Counsel to Tukur, Tayo Oyetibo, SAN, had argued that the charges preferred against the accused persons should not be entertained by the court because it was their company, Eterna Plc that committed the crime imputed to them.
However, Jacobs pointed out that the position of the law, on the issue, is that "a company on its own cannot commit a crime but must use human agents".
He further submitted that, the company, without the human agents, cannot answer to the alleged crime and that the roles played by the accused persons were clearly stated in their statements.
He prayed the court to "look at the statement of the first accused(Mahmud Tukur) who gave a vivid account of the transaction and how he signed for the monies paid into the account of the 4th defendant(Eterna Plc)."
Jacobs further submitted that Tukur's statement shows his involvement in the transaction that led to the charge. Besides, he said the accused is involved in the day- to- day-running of the affairs of the company and that Ochonogor as Director of Finance during this period, played major role in the importation and transfer of licence. "So, Tukur and Ochonogor are qualified to be charged together with Eterna Plc, as defined under the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State," he submitted.
Justice Akapo ruled that: "the court cannot delve into the substantive suit at an interlocutory stage.
I therefore find no merit in the application and it is accordingly dismissed".
He subsequently adjourned the matter to September 15, 22 and 25 for trial.
Mahmud Tukur, Alex Ochonogor, Abdullahi Alao and Eterna Plc were arraigned on a nine-count charge over an alleged N1.8billion subsidy scam.

Keep praying and trusting God, He will provide all you need”.

Nollywood actress, Judith Audu, who was also in attendance, commended the initiative, stating that “it is always good to do things like this for the refugees, as it gives them a sense of belonging and lets them know that they have a family here in Nigeria, I particularly enjoyed watching Sammie Okposo and Nikki Laoye score goals each”.
