BOKO HARAM DECLARES WAR ON GOVT OFFICIALS’ WIVES, and OTHERS







The Islamic insurgent group,
Jama’atu ahlis sunnah lil daawati
wal jihad, popularly known as
Boko Haram, has declared war
on
Northern leaders, governors and
government officials.
In an Hausa language video by
its
leader, Abubakar Shekau,
posted
on YouTube, the group said it
would begin to target the
leaders.
“This message is for those in
authority (emirs, governors, and
government officials). Wallahi
you
have no resting place again and
no resting time again, either we
are here or we are not,” the
group said.
Shekau did not elaborate on the
group’s reason for deciding to
target Northern leaders, but said
“you (the Northern leaders)
have
messed up yourselves and you
have messed up your own
situation.”
The insurgents also condemned
what they described as the lies
of
negotiations with government
officials. Shekau said his group
was not negotiating and had no
plans to negotiate with the
government.
No negotiation with FG
“The claim that we are
negotiating with the state is
untrue, that is the figment of
their
imagination.” He said: “We are
not
in dialogue with anyone, but this
seems to feed their taste or their
appetite for disinformation.”
While denying peace negotiation,
the Boko Haram leader admitted
that some of their members had
been killed by security
operatives.
“All I can confirm is that they
are
killing us rather than dialoguing
with us,” he said.
Female members tortured
Shekau also accused the security
operatives of targeting female
members of the sect. He alleged
that the women are tortured
after
incarceration by security
agencies.
“As at Saturday when I made
this
video, between 7 and 10 of
them
(women) have been
incarcerated,” Shekau said. “We
don’t know where they are kept
or what they are doing to
them.”
The Boko Haram leader said his
group would retaliate by
focusing
its attack on women related to
security and state officials.
Mr. Shekau also condemned the
video, made by an Israeli –
American, which ‘dishonours’
Prophet Muhammed.
“I have words for you (the
makers of the video). All these
have no impact on the prophet
you know, however you wait
and
see what the consequences will
be for you,” he said.
The Boko Haram leader also
claimed that the alleged arrest
or
killing of the group’s spokesman,
Abu Qaqa, and other leaders,
was
not true. Even though he
admitted to the killing of many
of
its members, Mr. Shekau
claimed
the group’s leadership is still
intact.
“The most bogus of these claims
is that the leadership of our
group has been decimated or
arrested,” Mr. Shekau states
while
laughing. “It is probably the
leadership of the rogue group
that they killed which they
created in the first place.”
He said Abu Qaqa, the group’s
spokesman is alive and that any
information to the contrary was
false.
“You can go ahead and even
declare that this broadcast is
fiction,” he said.
