Boko Haram, Nigeria’s Islamist territorist group has released a new video mentioning elder statesmen as their target for attack.
The full text of his 28-minute video, delivered in Hausa, reads;
“My brethren…you should hold on to your weapons and continue fighting. Let them understand that our work is not confined to Yobe, Borno and Adamawa (states).
Make them understand that we are not restricted by emergency rule. They should understand we are under the canopy of Allah.
“This is the beginning. Yes, this is the beginning. “We Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad are fighting Christians wherever we meet them and those who believe in democracy, those who pursue Western education wherever we meet them.
By Allah, we will kill whoever practices Democracy. “And you the infidels of Rivers State, Niger (Delta), the town of Jonathan, Shekau is talking to you (sounds of gunshots). Shekau is talking to you, that small boy that has become the nightmare of infidels is talking to you.
“Oh you the leader of the Niger Delta, you will soon see your refinery destroyed. You will in the incoming days see your refinery you are boasting about bombed. Our refinery is Allah.
“Niger-Delta you are in trouble. Jonathan you are in trouble…Ban ki-Moon you are in trouble, Bejamin Netanyahu you are in trouble, Queen Elizabeth, you are in trouble, Babangida, Kwankwaso, Shekarau, Kashim, Buhari, you are in trouble. “Yahaya Jingir…the cleric of Jos, the advocate of ‘Boko Halal’, right? We are Boko Haram, you are Boko Halal. You will see, bastard.
“We killed Albani of Zaria. We killed Albani of Zaria. Shekau killed Albani of Zaria.Tomorrow he will kill Jingir, the day after tomorrow he will kill Dapchia, the next day he will kill Wapchama, next he will kill Shehu of Borno, Ado Bayero. We rebel against you, between us and you is enmity and rancour until you believe only in Allah.
“The reason why I will kill you is you are infidels, you follow Democracy…Whoever follows Democracy is an infidel. This is Shekau, this is why I’m in enmity with you.
“Buhari is an infidel, Babangida is an infidel, Atiku is an infidel, late Yar’Adua was an infidel, Shehu of Borno is an infidel. You are all infidels. What makes you infidels is Democracy and constitution and western education…I therefore call on brethren in Kano to rise up and replicate the Baga attack.
“All these infidels we are the ones killing them. We enjoy shedding their blood. “The Koran must be supreme, we must establish Islam in this country; Not only in Borno, we will henceforth destroy any schools wherever we see them.”
Just this morning, 25th February 2014, in Leonard’s street, Rosenteville, Johannesburg, South Africa, a white man of about 60 years old jumped down from a two storey building in an effort to take his own life. Our Johannesburg correspondent was at the scene of the incident to capture the picture of the diseased.
On interview, a neighbor who spoke on anonymous grounds said the death of the 60 year old man might be “another effect of the worsening economic situations in South Africa following the death of her founding father- Nelson Mandela and the coming general elections.”
As at press time, the body of the deceased is still lying down in front of the house he jumped from while police officers are carrying out their investigations.
More news on this is coming soon.

The will of the former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela has been read. The anti apartheid struggle icon left 64 million South African rands for his family. 9 if his employees got 50,000 Rands each for their services to the late president. The children got 3 million rands each and his surviving wife Gracia got half of Mandela’s estate.
Mixed feelings aroused on the social media as Winnie Mandela was omitted from the will. Winnie didn’t get a cent from the will.
A status update on Facebook reads thus: “If Mandela truly forgave Winnie, why would he omit her in his will despite her struggles during the struggle?”
It will be recalled that some white sculptors had made a caricature of Mandela’s statue by inserting a rat in his ear.
The South African Home Affairs Department, Asylum office in Marabastad, Pretoria was thrown into chaos today as a Somalian Asylum seeker was mobbed to death by a security officer attached to the office.
Every Thursday as early as 1am, hundreds of immigrants gather at this home affairs to seek for asylum and most of them get beaten or whipped by the alleged xenophobic officers.
Commenting on today’s incident, a Nigerian asylum seeker who spoke anonymously said he “wish this will tell the world what foreigners go through at Marabastad, Pretoria.”.
South African TV celebrity, Dineo Ranaka was caught on our camera dancing to P Square’s personally with a Waitress and a Nigerian presenter in Melview last night. The smart Chinese looking celebrity is said to be in love with a Nigerian media consultant.
A recent story has been flying around the web about two gays who were mobbed to death in the presence of a Nigerian Police. Our online researchers have made diligent efforts to uncover that this story is an old news which took place last year and is not a post-anti-gay incident. It happened sometime last year and recently went viral online through some gay activist.
Already United States have threatened to sanction Nigeria in protest of her anti gay law.
Africa Thisday believes 14 years is too much to punish somebody for been gay.
A rabbit has been hidden in right ear of the newly erected Nelson Mandela statue at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, South Africa. The sculptors of the nine metre bronze-plated statue, Andre Prinsloo and Ruhan Janse van Vuuren, secretly added the rabbit to the work.
The duo have said the rabbit was a “small trademark” of their work after the department of arts and culture did not allow them to engrave their signatures on bottom of the trouser leg of the statue. They said it also represented the tight deadline they were working under as rabbit in Afrikaans “haas” also means haste.
Recall that the struggle against the apartheid was fought against the Afrikaans in power. Africa Thisday is just wondering if this is not the Afrikaner’s way of making Mandela’s struggle a joke after the legend’s death.
Reports say that they have tendered an apology for their expensive joke.

Mu’azu would definitely use the position to cement the $20B theft and it will return NO CASE! Tukur’s son subsidy theft is a forgotten issue now.
