shekau-10Leader of the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, also known as Boko Haram, Imam Abubakar Shekau, on Wednesday released a video in which he claimed responsibility for the killing of popular Zaria-based cleric, Sheikh Auwal Albani.

“We killed Albani of Zaria. We killed Albani of Zaria. Shekau killed Albani of Zaria”, the Boko Haram leader said in the 28-minute long video clip.

Shekau also vowed that his fighters would soon blow off oil installations in the Niger Delta.

In the video, Shekau is seen dressed in military fatigue and wearing a turban.

The location appears to be a bush dotted with scanty vegetation, and he climbs an armoured tank and thereafter alights again while dozens of his men stand by and keep firing gunshots from rifles mounted on Hilux trucks.

“My brothers…you should hold on to your weapons and continue fighting. Let them understand that our work is not confined to Yobe, Borno and Adamawa”, he said.

“Make them understand that we are not restricted by emergency rule. They should understand that we are under the shield of Allah. This is the beginning, yes, this is the beginning. By Allah, we will kill whoever practices democracy.”

“This is the beginning. Yes, this is the beginning.

“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…” and went on to name certain Northern politicians, traditional rulers, Islamic clerics, who he said his men would target as well as some world leaders.

“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”.

Shekau also spoke strictly in Arabic in another clip but the message was no different from the one he delivered in Hausa.

In 2013, the Nigerian military authorities claimed that Shekau might have died of gunshot wounds but he has since gone on to release at least four videos since then.

There was no immediate reaction from military authorities on the latest video.

  1. Shekau, you are a coward and cowards die a thousand times before their death. Why can’t you come out openly and challenge your enemies and the Nigerian security personnels. You will juat terrorize this country for a short time, your days are numbered, no doubt about it.

  2. Indeed he is a COWARD of the HIGHEST ORDER. You live by guns…you will surely die by guns…STUPID MURDERER. All the blood you have shed will HUNT you all the days of you MISERABLE LIFE. Hear him qoute from the koran…is Islam truly a religion of peace? Everywhere in the world Islam is causing unimaginable havoc…haba! In a little while you would hear his fellow brothers defending him. BLOODY BLOODY ISLAM.

  3. What I believe is that God is not sleeping over Nigeria case, but our leaders are on just side, I pray that God will make them to deside well amen

  4. @ “MAKEI TALK” & like minds. Islam means total submission to the WILL of Allah. Many world renowned celebrities and sport men/women have submitted & are still submitting to the WILL of Allah. People like Shekau & other semi-literate cowards should not & can never be used as yardstick. Whether you like it or not, sooner or later, ISLAM will dominate the world. So “MAKEI TALK” & your likes should seek for knowledge & the TRUTH and join the train before it is too late, when you kick the bucket.

  5. Religion has caused more harvoc throughout the world and ISLAM has been at the most reconing side please if truely ISLAM is for GOD’s will then faithful muslims worldover should come together and kill those giving the relion a bad NAME until then ISLAM remain what JESUS called a BAD TREE ofcourse it can’t bear any good fruit.

  6. MOHHAMED is ISHMAEL’s ofspring and the TRUE GOD had said in HIS word that both ISHMAEL and his ofspring will never know peace instead they will be killers and getting killed aswell so no wonder the RELIGION that comes from such PEOPLE is characterised by killings {GENESIS 16 v 10}
