The leadership of the Jama’atu Ahl-Sunnati Lil Da’awati Wal Jihad, also known as Boko Haram, yesterday threatened to consume the President Goodluck Jonathan in three months.
In a new video, posted on Youtube by the sect, it stated that President Jonathan could not end its insurgency in June as publicly stated.
The new posting was in apparent reaction to recent statement by the president in North Korea that the activities of the sect would be brought to an end by June. Sheik Abubakar Imam Shekau, leader of the group, boasted that Nigerian security agencies could not wipe out the sect by June 2012, as promised by the president.
Several bodyguards surrounded Shekau, who appeared agitated throughout the video recording. The message, which was delivered in Hausa and Arabic languages, lasted for 14 minutes and two seconds.
In the video entitled, ‘Message To Jonathan,’ Shekau vowed in the preamble that the sect must destroy Christians and Christianity in Nigeria, particularly those killing Muslims and it would also kill all Muslims aiding the arrest and harassment of its members.
“You, Jonathan, cannot stop us like you boasted; instead, we will devour you in three months like you are boasting. If death is your worldly gain, for us, it is eternal victory to die working for Allah. Our joy is to die in Jihad for Allah against infidels like you…”
“We are also aware of some Muslims using our name to make money; we will say nothing but let them continue, and they will meet Allah in the last day. We are not doing physical human service, but Allah’s work and it is clear your aim is killing us. Let me tell you, with Allah, we will triumph over you and your men in hundreds. We are not boasting rather keeping quiet and working for Allah.
“Allah that put an end to Pharaoh and other wicked rulers that you (President) are not even up to, will finish you and end your government. We are not afraid because we are not doing man’s work but Allah’s work. And we will see who will carry the day.”
