Nigeria: Boko Haram Threatens To Exterminate Christians In The North

(National Mirror) – The dreaded Boko Haram Islamic sect has threatened to launch sustained and coordinated attacks on Christians resident in the North in the next few weeks. According to the spokesman of the group Abu Qaqa, who spoke with some select journalists via a telephone interview, the group  will launch a number of attacks, coordinated and part of the plan to eradicate Christians from certain parts of the country.

Boko Haram has taken responsibility for a number of bomb attacks on Christian churches across the country since the Christmas Day bombing of St Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State, left dozens of people killed. On the threat of the military units deployed across the northern part of the country which has resulted in the arrest and killings of some members of the sect in an attempt to curtail its violent activities, Abu Qaqa said the government  cannot be prepared for what is to come, we will create so much effort to end the Christian presence in our push to have a proper Islamic state that the Christians won’t be able to stay.

On Friday, three members of the sect were killed in a bomb- making factory in Maiduguri, according to police and military sources.  That was part of our planning and it is unfortunate, said the spokesman. The explosion in the Kaleri suburb of the northern city on Friday destroyed a house and dismembered the three Islamist sect members, Lt- Col. Hassan Mohammed of the special military unit in Maiduguri, said in a media briefing.

Items recovered at the scene included remote control devices, wrist watch timers, metallic drums and copies of the Quran. Abu Qaqa said the sect converts homes into bomb-making factories for their planned attacks in the next few weeks. The sect has carried out some bombings and killings in the Kano city recently which resulted in the death of over 200 persons after it had allegedly warned in advance of the attacks. Aside Maiduguri, there have been accidental and fatal explosions in suspected Boko Haram bomb-making factories in Damaturu, Yobe State capital and Kaduna city in recent months. Violent activities blamed on the militant group, whose goals, President Goodluck Jonathan said recently, remain largely unclear since mid-2009 have claimed more than 1,000 lives, including more than 300 this year alone, according to human rights groups.

    Dont be foolish. If i were u and i want continue with the agenda of destroying the north, i will find another person name not qaqa becouse a person with that name was already in police net. At last, what i believe is that the designers and executioner of this plan are digging their own graves sooner or later they will reap what they sow.
