Earlier this morning I posted something similar, now have gotten the video. Let me break it down.
The leader of Boko Haram sect, Imam Abubakar Shekau,
released a video today in which he claimed responsibility for
abducting the Nigerian school girls, and said he will soak all
Nigerian soil with Christian blood, and Muslims opposing them,
whom he described as infidels.
The video lasts 56 minutes and 58 seconds, and shows Iman
Shekau speaking from a script, surrounded by heavily armed
fighters, backed by an armored personnel carrier, and two
other armed vehicles.
Iman Shekau said, “I am the one that took your girls. Are you the
one that created the girls? I will sell them in the market. I have
my own market of selling human beings. It is Allah, the owner
that instructed me to sell. I will sell the girls.”
And he added, “It is Allah that instructed us, until we soak the
ground of Nigeria with Christian blood and so called Muslims
contradicting Islam. After we have killed, killed, killed, and get
fatigue and wondering on what to do with smelling of their
corpses, smelling of Obama, Bush and Jonathan worried us
then we will open prison and be imprisoned the rest. Infidels
have no value.”
234 Nigerian schoolgirls, aged between 15-18, were abducted
from a remote school in Chibok village, Borno State, in
Northeast Nigeria on April 15. The girls and young women came
from schools in Izge, Lassa, Ashigashiya and Warabe to do
final exams because other the schools were shut in Borno
state because of attacks by Boko Haram.
Iman Shekau said the sects friends are those in Afghanistan,
Mali, Yemen and Pakistan, and not those Arabs who just
bragged with their colors but deal with Americans and the
West. Shekau said there is slavery in Islam, contrary to his
critics, noting that Prophet Muhammed took slaves during Badr
war in Hejaz region of western Arabia in present day Saudi
Shekau said, “Just because I took girls in Western school they
are worried. I say they (the girls) should desert the school.
They should go and marry. Stupid people. Talking about human
rights and democracy. Nonsense. People that are doing same
sex marriage and saying they are leaders.”
And he added, “I will imprison Jonathan’s daughter, any one
that turn to Islam will be saved. For me anyone that embraces
Islam is my own. Stupid Jonathan, you will be surprise. Until the
land is soaked with blood.”
Later he said, “This is a war against Christians and democracy
and their constitution, we have not started, we will be in
Abuja, and in your state. This war is against Christians, I mean
Christians, generally the infidels. Allah says we should finish
them when we get them.”
Shekau boasted in the video that he has no business with
infidel’s money, “I have no time with your trillion. I am working
for Allah and will die for it. No one can stop me. You killed
Mohammed Yusuf. Are you not saying he is even better than
Shekau? Even if you kill me, other fighters will rise better than
me, I am nothing and worthless before Allah who I am working
for. You are sitting with Christians and saying we are one,
saying there is no difference. We are not one with infidels.”
Later he said, “It is a lie, in fact you suppose to wash and re-
wash a plate Christian eats food before you eat as Muslims.
You know all these things and you are contradicting Islam. Are
Christians the people we should play with? They killed us in
Shendam, Zangon Katab and all the places. It is either you are
with us or you are with them, and when we see you, we will
harvest your neck with knife.”
He cursed Islamic political leaders the late Malam Aminu Kano,
Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, and Islamic scholar, Usman Dan
Fodio as infidels for working and accepting democracy and
constitution, and added, “We are not ignorant of all that
The mass abduction three weeks ago, and the Nigerian
military’s failure to rescue the girls and young women, has
roused national and international outrage with protests in
major cities in Nigeria, and across the world.
A number of girls have escaped who said their captors
identified themselves as Boko Haram.
Nigerian Police Commissioner, Tanko Lawan told reporters the
number of escaped girls is 53.
