♪ thanks for being with us. yemeni leader sirhadi said he is technically the still the president. he issued a statement from adin. he left the capital, sanaa after being held for weeks under house arrest under houthi fighters. >> reporter: under house arrest by houthia malishas for week but he managed to escape. from the southern city of aden he issued a statement with a list of demands. he said that all decisions, accomplishing political measures and appointments taken since september 21st, when the houthis over iran sanaa. he called for the malitias to leave the capital, all government ministers and high-ranking officials who have been abducted or under house arrest.
6:02 pm
previous agreements such as the gulf initiative and the national dialogue should be maintained and built upon as the basis for legitimacy. have you also called on the international community to continue to support legitimacy in yemen to protect the political process and to offer economic support. according to men yemenis, the statement ignores several key issues. most importantly, the question of his resignation. hadi's escape is seen as a game-changer. a couple of days ago, his opponent as well as some of his former supporters agreed on a new legislative body intended to lead up to a new form of government. the hadi's re-emergence has made it difficult to ignore him and to go go ahead with that plan. his resignation has not been approved by the parliament. constitutionally he is the legitimate president.
6:03 pm
he can decide whether to step down or lead. both in the south in the north, loyalty to president hadi and expressed a readiness to fight under his leadership to oust the houthis from sanaa, but a lack of clairety in his statement left many con fused. mohammed vall aden. let's look at how the situation in yemen got to this point. in early september last year president hadi sacked his cabinet and called for a new national unity government. it followed two weeks of anti-government protests in which shia houthis were heavily involved. later, they took control of the capital, sanaa. january this year they rejected the draft of a new constitution proposed by the government. they seized state t.v. and fought with troops in the capital. the government said it was an attempted coup. then president hadi resigned as houthi rebels remained in control of the capital and the
6:04 pm
presidential palace. the editor-in-chief of yacht"the yemen post" says the current situation could undermine the houthis houthis' recent successes? >> this is the last thing they expected. president hadi is everything that happened since september 21st is unconstitutional. this includes his resignation, includes the resignation of the government the entire process. it's something the houthis never expected. president hadi right now is returning since september where he was basically forced to take armed resolutions and assign the government that he was not with or was pressured or sometimes, the houthis are very strong. >> that's not an issue that is being discussed. the law that resulted is right
6:05 pm
now a big black dot. houthis' rep take they could not safeguard a residence of a president, let alone a country. and they were in control of everything. they had hundreds of security forces either in his house, yard, or above his house where -- which is the military compound. so this is something that the houthis are right now seeing things they never expected and all of the successes they had could go any vain. only they insist on pushing yemen in a civil war. this is one yemenis from my perspective will back president hadi because the houthis in the last five months have been not been able to gain one ally in government the very clear within a statement that hadi is with a
6:06 pm
national yemen, one united yemen under federal state as per the national dialogue conference. there is nothing in a statement about separation no separatist movement. hadi is 100% with the unity of yemen, and this is the same stance that we have known him over the last couple of years to be one of the strongest holders. the power right now is the houthis never expected this and they oppressed many it in yemen when they would they had the authority and no one could stop them. this is a time where the opposition faction, all of the tribes the provinces will now ally under the constitutional leader who is right now president hadi. >> the nigerian army says it has retaken a boarder town from boko haram fighters near the border of chad niger and camaroon during an attack described as
6:07 pm
the worse massacre of the group's six-year campaign of violence. when the town was seized by boko haram, these photos were released. they show the scale of destruction. at the time, nigerian government said 150 people had been killed but locals put the number of dead as high as 2000. more from yvonne in the capital, abuja. >> reporter: the rapecapture of baga is a symbolic victory for the nigerian army. it has been the thorn in the side of the fight against the group over the last six years: two very controversialents have taken place in the town earlier this year in january. there were reports of at least 2000 people were killed by boko haram. the military were basically accused of it turning a blind eye of this. in 2013, similar accusations, though a smaller number at least 200 people were aldly killed by boko haram and dumped in a mass grave.
6:08 pm
again, the authorities were accused of not responding to sos calls from residents in the area so it was hugely important for the nigerian military to get this town back from boko haram. now, what they are telling us is that many bokoh haram fighters were killed in the violence that took place. they were able to get weapons that the group were holding, anti-aircraft weapons, for example, vehicles, and that what they are hoping now that the town is under the chrome of the nigerian army is we will start to see the many thousands of people who fled to neighboring countries like niger republic return. >> we asked if the situation in northern nigeria poses a threat for the country's upcoming elections. >> there is a high possibility that the elections will be postponed on the 28th of march. the reason i say this when there are more victories to defeat boko haram, there is a
6:09 pm
certain level of okay myself by military just to keep boko haram away. the reason for extending the election date is actually because you want troops disengaged in the northeast to cover the 155,000 bowling units the troops need to be there a lot longer and cannot be disengaged. there is a high possibility it will be postponed. now, the electoral commission can postpone elections until the 30th of april, by which time its mandate would have finished. consequently, it would have to be done by the president himself. we can see why "goodluck" jonathan had a press conference to distance himself from the position to postpone the election. he said i was not consulted. if he needs to do that in the fewer. >> the town of debaltseve was
