As Nigeria’s Boko Haram declares allegiance to ISIS, christians took to the social media platforms to state the difference between the message that christianity preaches and the message radical islam promotes.
Have your say: What is the difference between Christianity and Islam?
But just when life was about becoming sweet for Kufreh and his new home, he was drafted to the volatile Northern Nigeria to fight the dreaded #BokoHaram insurgents. And the evil bullets of Boko Haram claimed the life of this brave soldier.
He was somebody’s sweetheart, he was a little child’s daddy, he was an old woman’s son.
Please drop an RIP for this brave soldier and share this to celebrate the life of this great African who died defending other Africans.
A female suicide bomber arrested by a vigilante group in the North East, popularly known as the Civilian JTF, has revealed that 50 female suicide bombers have been unleashed on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, with the mandate of hitting no fewer than 100,000 people before the end of December 2014.
The female suicide bomber, who was handed over to security operatives, according to members of the Civilian JTF, was unable to detonate the bomb strapped to her before she was arrested.
Also, troops on Tuesday morning repelled what could have been a deadly attack by the Boko Haram insurgents in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.
Nigerian Tribune gathered that the insurgents came into the town at about 5am, but met a strong Army, which battled them out.
It could be observed, however, that tension was very high in Maiduguri, to the effect that students of the University of Maiduguri had to undergo serious checks by security operatives before they were allowed into the campus.
A ban on students entering the campus with vehicles was also imposed, as only lecturers were allowed into the institution with their vehicles after rigorous checking and identification.
The Civilian JTF also were put on red alert, as rumour had it that female suicide bombers now prowl Maiduguri with the intention of detonating bombs at large gatherings.
It will be recalled that already, four female suicide bombers had claimed the lives of over 100 people in two incidents at the Maiduguri Monday Market recently.
Speaking to one of the security operatives at the Gate Two of the University of Maiduguri, he said a successful attack on Konduga meant the insurgents could easily take over Maiduguri as they attempted to do in Damaturu, Yobe State on Monday.
According to him, the soldiers were doing everything possible to ensure that the insurgents did not get the slightest opportunity of launching an attack on Maiduguri.
BOKO HARAM: A middle-aged man suspected to be a suicide bomber was on Tuesday afternoon mobbed to death while trying to detonate a bag loaded with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the popular Gombe line bus park in the heart of Gombe town.
Eye witness account said that the suspect tried to force his way through the main gate of the bus park with his bag when security personnel were screening passengers, and was immediately caught by angry youths and set on fire after the explosives were found to have been carefully arranged in the bag and ready for detonation.
The state Police Commissioner, Abdullahi Kudu Mna, who arrived the scene almost
immediately, told reporters that the explosion could have been devastating if it had gone off at the same location where about 10 persons died after a bomb exploded barely three weeks ago.
According to him, he was pleased with the response of the Police and other security outfits even though the suspect was mobbed to death by the angry youths.
He explained that the man tried to force himself into the park even when the security men at the gate insisted that his bag must be searched. This made onlookers suspicious prompted them to pounce on the suspect and then the mob action took place.
He said items found in the suspect’s bag included five components of rocket-propelled grenades and other forms of ammunition .The police had since cordoned off the area and dispersed onlookers from the place.
He also cautioned members of the public to be more alert and security conscious.
Less than three weeks ago, a bomb was detonated in the park killing no fewer that 10 persons in the morning when business at the park was at its peak.
Nigeria’s islamic extremist sect, Boko Haram have released a recent video to AFP. The video shows the leader of the sect teaching the residents of the city they had captured in the Northern part of Nigeria while another clip of the video shows the residents of the city being entertained by Boko Haram insurgents. The fact that Boko Haram members can move freely on the streets of Nigeria spells danger for the rest of Nigerians.
CHIBOK-Revealing photographs of Boko Haram fighters have been taken by United States manned and unmanned aircraft as American military and intelligence specialists intensified the hunt for Nigeria’s missing schoolgirls.
However, US officials have expressed frustration with the country’s inability to act on these and other fresh intelligence about the Boko Haram extremists who took more than 200 school girls captive and threatened to sell them into slavery, The Los Angeles Times has reported.
“Images from US surveillance drones and satellites over the last week has shown suspected bands of Boko Haram militants setting up temporary camps and moving through isolated villages and along dirt tracks in northeastern Nigeria,” the report quoted US officials as saying.
It said the Obama administration has shared the images with President Goodluck Jonathan’s government in Abuja. “But Nigeria’s security forces are hampered by poor equipment and training and have failed to respond quickly,” said a US official familiar with the growing search operation.
US Defence officials, according to the report, believe the insurgents split the girls into several groups after the April 14 abduction from school in Chibok village. The leader of the militants, Abubakar Shekau, said this week that he would release some of the girls in exchange for imprisoned members of his group.
Bolstered by international help, the Nigerian-led search has now expanded to include an ungoverned area of desert and that crosses the porous borders into neighbouring Chad, Niger and Cameroon, US officials say. The girls’ locations are still unknown, however, the report said.
Meanwhile, mounting US frustration with the case spilled into the open on Thursday at a US Senate hearing where US officials complained of lack of decisive actions on what had been harvested so far.
“It is impossible to fathom that we might have actionable intelligence and we would not have the wherewithal — whether by the Nigerians themselves or by other entities helping the Nigerians — to be able to conduct a rescue mission,” said Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“In general, Nigeria has failed to mount an effective campaign against Boko Haram,” Alice Friend, the Pentagon’s principal director for Africa, told committee members. “In the face of a new and more sophisticated threat than it has faced before, its security forces have been slow to adapt with new strategies, new doctrines and new tactics.”
The United States, however, said it will continue to deepen its efforts, Defence Secretary, Chuck Hagel, said while traveling to Saudi Arabia.
“However, I have seen no intelligence come back that I am aware of that shows that we’ve located those girls,” he said.
For now, the United States is not sharing raw intelligence from its surveillance aircraft with Nigeria’s armed forces because the countries have still not established the intelligence-sharing protocols and safeguards needed for an intelligence-sharing agreement, Pentagon spokesman, Colonel Steve Warren, said.
That said, the intelligence gathered through the surveillance flights is being fed to an interdisciplinary team on the ground, and that team is analysing it and providing advice to the Nigerian government, he said.
Warren added that the manned and unmanned aircraft being used are unarmed.
Video Posted on
This is a video of the confession of an ex-warlord whose regime was more fierce than the reign of Abubakar Shekau, leader of Nigeria’s Boko Haram. He was named as the tenth most evil man who lived on earth. Milton Blahyi is a former feared rebel commander in Liberia’s brutal civil war who was initiated as a tribal priest and participated in his first human sacrifice at the age of 11. During the course of the ritual, Blahyi says that the “Devil” told him that he would become a great warrior and that he should continue to practice human sacrifice and cannibalism to increase his power. Later, the Krahn elders appointed him as high priest, a position that would lead him to become the spiritual advisor to Liberian President Samuel Doe.
Milton Blahyi was notorius for killing children and eating their heart and liver to gain spiritual power.
Blahyi stopped fighting in 1996, saying God appeared to him and told him that he was doing Satan’s work. So, he became an Evangelist preacher. Blahyi is now the President of the End Time Train Evangelistic Ministries Inc., with headquarters in Liberia.
Watch video and comment if Milton should be forced to face the International Criminal Court for war crimes.
Now that the operational leadership and visible face of Boko Haram, in the person of the filth called Mr. Abubakar Shekau (aka Darul Tawheed), has finally admitted that they were responsible for the abduction of hundreds of our school girls and that they intend to ‘’sell them in the market like slaves’’, it is pertinent and necessary for us to consider some of the emerging, though uncomfortable, facts.
This will enable us to understand the nature of who and what we are dealing with. Permit me to share the following facts that have been brought to my attention:
1. That the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has told us that 90 per cent of the girls that were abducted from their school at Chibok were Christians.
2. That President Goodluck Jonathan himself alluded to this during his last media chat when he said that ‘’the majority’’ of girls that were abducted were Christians.
3. That the majority of the girls that either ‘’escaped’’ or were released by their abductors were Muslims.
4. That the Governor of Borno State refused to accept the counsel and abide by the directives of WAEC that the exams should not take place in Chibok due to the precarious security situation and instead he insisted that the exams should take place there and that he would guarantee the security of the children.
5. That the Christian Association of Nigeria has formally accused the Governor of Borno State of ‘’conspiracy and collusion’’ and they have urged him to tell us exactly where the girls are and what he knows about the whole incident.
6. That the girls that have been kidnapped are being raped up to 15 times a day by their captors and that those amongst them that have refused to convert to Islam are having their throats cut (read the testimony of one of the girls that ‘’escaped’’ on page 8 of the Vanguard Newspaper, 5th April, 2014).
7. That there was not a single adult in the school grounds watching over the 278 girls that entire night apart from one security man and that there was no electricity, no generator, no principal, no matron, no house master and no house mistress in the grounds with them.
8. That the children were all alone in their dormitories that night in the blistering heat and deepest darkness before the Haramites arrived to burn their school and carried them away into captivity.
9. That the soldiers that were guarding the school in Chibok were redeployed a few hours before Boko Haram launched their attack and abducted the children.
10. That up till now pictures of the abducted girls have not been produced or released by the school authorities or the state government.
11. That this was a predominantly christian School and that Chibok is a predominantly Christian community.
President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday revealed that the masterminds of the two deadly bomb blasts that rocked Nyanya, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory have been arrested and are currently helping the security agencies in their efforts to unmask their financiers.
Jonathan spoke while fielding questions from journalists at the end of the 24th World Economic Forum for Africa, WEFA, held in Abuja which ended yesterday.
Jonathan said he had declared a total war on Boko Haram ‘’terror group’’ to rout it out of existence in the country, warning that anybody thinking that the spate of bombings and other devastation activities by the Boko Haram sect in Nigeria would force his administration to bend over forward and negotiate power with the sect or their sponsors should rather have a re-think as such a situation would not arise.
“Boko Haram is a terror group and as journalists you should know the meaning of terror. Before the 9/11 no body in the US or UK imagined the dimension of terrorists in the world. You can not be too sure of what ideology that drives their leaning. Sometimes, it is from the religious sentiments… but we need to combine so many factors to underscore their driving spirit . But I want to advice that the terrorists should also know that they don’t do certain things and get away with it because most of these activities are criminal offenses and they should know that when they are caught, they would pay dearly for it. ‘’For instance, I can tell you that the masterminds of the last Nyanya bomb blast have been arrested and would face the long arm of the law. I want to assure also that sooner than later, the abducted Chibok school girls would also be rescued with the help of the global community and we will use remote sensing technology to smoke them out to face the consequences,” Jonathan said.
I Pledge To Allah – Imam Abubakar Shekau
My brethren in Islam, I am greeting you in the name of Allah like he instructed we should among Muslims. Allah is great and has given us privilege and temerity above all people.
If we meet infidels, if we meet those that become infidels according to Allah, there is no any talk except hitting of the neck; I hope you chosen people of Allah are hearing. This is an instruction from Allah. It is not a distorted interpretation it is from Allah himself. This is from Allah on the need for us to break down infidels, practitioners of democracy, and constitutionalism, voodoo and those that are doing western education, in which they are practicing paganism.
If you say, I pledge to Nigeria my country, it is wrong and act of paganism. For me, I pledge to Allah my God, to be faithful to my Allah and you to your country. I to my Allah, I pledge to my Allah. To be faithful, loyal and honest to serve Allah. Are you saying what? To serve Nigeria? To Serve Allah? Loyal and honest to serve Allah? That is what I will say; this is what you are saying in your reading of western education. With all your strength you said you will worship a land, this is what you people said.
They are even saying that they would defend indivisibility of the country and its oneness. For me I will defend only what Allah said and you are only defending country. This is our differences and that is where I detect that western education is infidel. Allahuakubar. This is a message to Muslims to wage war against infidels who are not doing what Allah said. Those who are working that infidels and their act become our institutions in the world.
Suddenly you will hear somebody coming and be saying that there are no religious differences, where did you have that talk that there are no differences? Where did you get this talk because of Allah? Who told you there are no differences when Allah said there are differences in religion? What will you say about what Prophet said that the whites and the Jews will not trust you until you turn to their religion? This is what our leader said and you are telling us something useless.
You are sitting down in the name of clerics with turbans; you are sitting with Christians thinking it is mediation. Saying it is development and progress, what progress after you have deviated from Allah? We will die killing and slaughtering them, if you meet infidels in battle field brethren, just harvest their necks; Allah said it and not Shekau. Harvest Jonathan’s neck, harvest Kashim’s neck, Allah said cut out Burabura’s neck, even in Ka’aba if some is doing Salat for so long as he is deviating from what Allah said, he is infidel. Cut out their necks until the time that you will get majority over infidels of the world. And you will get it, Allah said it, time will come that you will form majority over infidels, face to face.
We will hold you as slaves, who told you there is no slave? They said human rights, stupid liars, when did you know human rights? You just come and lying in the name of Allah, Allah who created human doesn’t know rights until you stupid?
I will marry out a female at 12; I will do same for a nine year old girl like it was done on my mother Aisha and wife of Prophet. You infidels of the world, you have met a trouble, we must follow Allah, and you should die with bitterness.
Brethren cut out infidels from their necks, brothers you should capture slaves; just because I took girls in western school they are worried. I said they should even desert the school, they should go and marry. Nonsense, I am the one that captured your girls and I will sell them in the market. I have my own market of selling people; it is the owner that instructed me to sell. Yes, I will sell the girls people, I am selling the girls like Allah said until we soak the ground of Nigeria with infidels 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, Putin and Jonathan worried us then we will open prison and be imprisoned the rest. Infidels have no value.
It is Jonathan’s daughter that I will imprison; nothing will stop this until you convert. If you turn to Islam then you will be saved. For me anyone that embraces Islam is my brother. Stupid Jonathan, no matter your infidel status you will be surprise. Until the land is soaked with blood, you have never fought me but I am angry with you, this is what I said. We will kill and imprison and never get tired or you bring your trillion, there is nothing we can do with your money, if you know us you will not think that of us.
Allah said he just give us work because if he likes, he will finish infidels, but Allah made us to fight you so as to taste our faith. Some of us that said we are believers; it is to see if we are sincere or just playing to gallery. This is what Allah does to taste us with difficulties and see our faith. Those that died working for Allah, they will not lose their deeds, and they will see it in heaven.
May Allah make us killed in working for him, oh Allah make us to work for you. Oh Allah helps us to work for you, this is what I will tell my brothers to stand and work for Allah and Islam.
What I will want you to know is, there is slavery in Islam, don’t be deceive about United Nations, it is useless thing and I call them United Nations of absurdity led by Ban Ki-moon. If not how can you say there is no slaves? Why are you slaughtering chicken? If someone say there is slave, what is wrong? Are daughters of slaves not slaves? It is Quran that said so, for example can you go into someone’s house with his wife and children and say they should leave the house? Locals will even say you are an oppressor and so, where is Allah and you? Where is Allah and you Jonathan and Obama? Where is Allah and Ban Ki-moon? And you are saying you are advocates of human rights. Humour sexual people like you, promoters of same sex marriage, animals knows rights more than them, even sheep doesn’t sleep sheep, but you keep a woman and a woman as husband and wife.
See the time we are in and Obama will stand up and say it is their rights, see what we are facing. We said we will worship our Allah and stick to what he said, we left your sight and you are still fighting us. You think we will not worship Allah? Allah said his land is vast and only him will be worshipped. Go and form your own land, we are in Allah’s land and don’t know Nigeria. We don’t know Cameroon or Chad, I don’t know, I don’t have a country. Islamiyya is what I have, wherever I am is mind. This is what we know.
There are slaves in Islam, you should know this, Prophet Muhammed took slaves himself during Badr war. He killed many and because of this, I will also kill Obama, if I catch him. I will kill Jonathan, if I catch him. Just like you want to catch me and kill me. Do you think I will Allah’s work? I am not mad; it is you that is mad. You are placing 50 million booty on the person that catch me, you don’t know that there people that we are slaughtered in the cause of Islam, I am no one. I know my religion well and not illiterate. I am nothing if Civilian JTF kills me. Even a small person can kill me. I am working for God and will die in 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 God who I am working for. That is Islam you don’t know.
Like Prophet did, even if I catch slave, I will hold and say I am the owner. There is no President in Nigeria. No President in Nigeria, no President in the world only Islam. Why would you arrest people and keep them in prison? What is the reason? You are doing yours, should we not do Allah’s own? Any infidel is a sheep to be sold, Jonathan, if I catch you, I will sell you, Obama, Bush I will sell you for peanut. Infidels doesn’t have value, I am the most expensive, don’t be agree, I have no doubt it will have, the only way this stop is your conversation. I will cut and not eat your meat; neither will I drink your blood.
Let me tell you prominent people who worked for Allah and authored several books were slaves, and you come here saying we are selling girls, are you their manufacturer? You are nothing, it is the owner that authorizes the sell, and you are suffering people you gave people holding arms without food. It is Bush and Obama that are talking about rights.
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. And you come joining hands with Bush, and Obama. You are laughing, I am talking about King of Saudi Arabia, and they are his advisors. Our own people are those in Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan and Mali. Our own are those who will stand and say Quran to be followed. I will not fear anyone.
You are seen me black, I am for Allah; you are deceiving people that they are Arabians. No matter what you think, I will not follow anyone except Allah; I will not model anyone except Prophet. Brethren stand up and never allowed yourself to be cheated. You came deceiving people with democracy and Abraham Lincoln, Aminu Kano, Tafawa Balewa are all infidels because it was constitution that they promoted. If you like you should understand or deliberately refused. May Allah help us to do what is in Quran.
How can you call Allah when you have followed Obama, I am not Boko Haram, I am Jamaatu Allus sunna lil daawati wal Jihad. I don’t care what you call me, you are in trouble. I am against government of the people by the people. I am for government of the people by Allah. I will not worship what you are worshipping, you are worshipping democracy and because of that you are tracing to kill us. What is even your religion, communists like you. Everything you say NATO, you thought we don’t know, England, France, Germany, China, all communists.
All those clerics are to be killed for following democracy, all of them are infidels. I will tell Muslims what Allah wants them to do. We are anti-Christians, and those that deviated from Islam, they are forming basis with prayers but infidels.
All those with turbans looking for opportunities to smear us, they are all infidels. Betrayers and cheats like them. Like Israel people, Rome, England they are all Christians and humour sexual. People of Germany like Margret Thatcher. Ndume are all infidels.
Saminu Turaki said he is representing mediation, enter our hand and see mediation. All of them are infidels. Here is what Bush once said and we will repeat it here. He said all the fights going on in Iraq and Afghanistan are Christian war, crusade, it is a known issue. And that they will crush Afghanistan, today I will say my own. To the people of the world, everybody should know his status, it is either you are with us Mujahedeen or you are with the Christians. The likes of Obama, Lincoln, Clinton, Jonathan, Aminu Kano. They are your fathers of democracy, the likes of Tafawa Balewa. It is Usman Dan Fodiyo that is our own.
We know what is happening in this world, it is a Jihad war against Christians and Christianity. It is a war against western education, democracy and constitution. We have not started, next time we are going inside Abuja; we are going to refinery and town of Christians. Do you know me? I have no problem with Jonathan. This is what I know in Quran. This is a war against Christians and democracy and their constitution, Allah says we should finish them when we get them.
It was in this land that they cleaned defect with Quran in Maiduguri, in university they did same. They are cheating Islam and deceiving. I support not Abraham Lincoln, Ban Ki-moon, and any unbeliever. This war is against Islam. God will not leave us. You are dying because of money and I will die believing in Allah.
