Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has told the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, to regard himself as dead.
The figure-head of the Islamic terrorist sect released a new video where he threatened to kill the Emir over his recent utterances, which sought to mobilise support against Boko Haram.
After the recent attack against the Kano Central Mosque, Sanusi urged Kano State residents and vigilantes, to arm and defend themselves against future terrorist attacks.
Shekau, in the video which was posted on Youtube, on Wednesday, condemned Sanusi and adherents of most Islamic sects, describing them as infidels who have abandoned the Islamic doctrine.
Shekau said: “Before I start talking to my brothers who believed in me and the religion of Allah, not the religion of democracy, not that of western education, those who believed in the religion of the Quran not that of the constitution and not religion of the Emir of Kano.”
“We do not practise the religion of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, not the religion of Jonathan, not the religion of Obasanjo, not the religion of Atiku, not the religion of Babangida, not the religion of Obama, not the religion of Bush, not the religion of Clinton, but the religion of Allah.”
“Now listen to me Emir of Kano. I am talking to you and only you because of your recent utterances. Let me inform you now that you are late (dead), you should know that you are only the King of Kano, King of Central Bank, King of money, you are only Sanusi Lamido.”
Shekau said his group would continue to fight and kill local vigilantes, hunters, and all those who oppose the teachings of the sect.
Speaking further, he said: “Emir of Kano Sanusi, you are late, that our triumph is just for a period of time so you said. Even your predecessors who are renowned idol worshippers in Islamic history like ‘Abujahal’ could not succeed in fighting Islam.”
“Yes, you can say that our success is for a period of time, because you are a king of Bank and a loyal citizen of your country. Because you are made the Emir of Kano, that is why you got angry and was calling on the vigilante groups and hunters to attack us. Let me tell you that the hunters and the vigilante groups will fail and you will also fail.”
Shekau condemned all other Islamic sects in the country, saying the Izala, Tijjaniyya, Qadiriyya and Shiite Islamic groups were pagans and his group would continue to kill their followers.
The Boko Haram leader also condemned the government of Saudi Arabia, saying that all infidels would perish in hell, while adding that him and his followers were ready to die and go and rest in heaven.
“We will kill you people, we will capture hostages and keep selling them. It is Allah that is supreme and even if there is no war, members of my sect and I will die.”
