A new video has emerged which shows a Boko Haram leader delivering a message to President Goodluck Jonathan.
In the 14-minute clip, titled “Sako Zuwa Ga Jonathan” (Message to Goodluck Jonathan) Abubakar Shekau mocks the president for saying the security situation in the country would be under control by the middle of the year, and threatens to “devour” him.
“You, Jonathan, cannot stop us,” Shekau said. “Instead we will devour you in the three months like you are boasting.”
“We are proud soldiers of Allah, we will never give up as we fight the infidels. We will emerge as winners . We will finish you and end your government,” Shekau said, speaking in Arabic and Hausa.
“We are also aware of some Muslims using our name to make money,” he continued. “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 finishes Pharaoh and others wicked rulers that you are not even up to them, will finish you and end your government. We are not afraid because we are not doing man work but Allah’s work. And we will see who will carry the day.”
