Boko Haram Says AIT Phone-In Interview Call Is Fake

By SaharaReporters, New York

Islamist militant sect Boko Haram has revealed that a purported telephone call made to the African Independent Television (AIT) by a caller pretending to be a Boko Haram spokesperson was fake.

A source close to the sect told Saharareporters that the no one in the sect or any on its leadership initiated a call threatening to attack Lagos and Abuja in 72 hours.

A Nigerian local TV station-African Independent Television- had played a phone call in which an individual claiming to be a representative of Boko Haram threatened to attack Lagos and Abuja in 72 hours.

The caller also requested that Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan unconditionally  meet with the sect in Yobe state, without security, to discuss the terms of a ceasefire, but our most reliable source said the call was a prank pulled by individuals capitalizing on the hysteria created by Boko Haram's recent attacks in northern Nigeria.

DERI, YOU ARE RIGHT BUT SENTIMENTAL!

I may agree with you on the issue of the accident but want you to know GEJ was always happy to blame and accuse the Northern elders on issues of Bomb blast or unending tensions which are caused and carried out by his government without security investigations. If at all anyone is wrong, it is your pay master GEJ but the truth shall prevail sooner than later. The SSS and police force may suppress the truth for now but will never suppress it for all times. The future will definitely make the families of all those who inflict pains on others pay for their atrocities. That is our prayer for Boko Haram, their sponsors and those who lie and tarnish the image of the righteous for selfish reasons.

It does not change the fact

It does not change the fact that Boko haram have killed innocent nigerians.The sheikh has no business defending the boko haram if he is not a strong supporter of their atrocities.

boko haram will fail

When one gets information like this it should not be treated with a wave of the hand . Add me on BB 33030bd0

@DERI: WE ARE NIGERIANS not from South or North dummy

It wasn't Buhari's government that killed Mohammed Yusuf (The initiator of BH), nor was Buhari among the PDP that the NSA said created BH. Rather the poor Buhari was almost framed for the independence day bomb blast. GEJ committed a lot of atrocities to become President he even signed a deal with the devil, sponsors of his campaign were paid back with interest as subsidies for importing nothing leaving Nigerians to pay back what was paid to them. Desperation made him and PDP to introduce tribal and religious politics which divided us during the polls, now we are learning the hard way. I hope the conscience of good people in the government like Ngozi Okonjo Iweala eats them till they cannot cope no more and resign, and if not the blood of the dead will be on their hands which either BH or abject poverty killed since the root cause of all is corruption and they have all the power to do otherwise.

The Power of the ALMIGHTY GOD can never be underestimated.

The Power of the ALMIGHTY GOD can never be underestimated.
Got great confidence that their time has EXPIRED.
God is on the MOVE NOW...
wATCH OUT FOR THE NEXT STORY ABOUT THESE NINCOMPOOPS CALLED Boko Haram.

Bolo haram watches tv?

So d idiotic boko haram watch tv, no bi so? I thot they are against western education? Mumu+mumu= olodo=boko haram! Nonsense!

Hilltop connection.

The AIT connection points to Babangida.If the number of the caller cannot be traced then i guess a glo line was used to make the call.Security personnel should join the dots.

Re: Boko Haram Says AIT Phone-In Interview Call Is Fake

How do they know? is TV not part of the 'haram'? self delusion!

ARISE! O MEN OF GOODWILL

Fake call or no,this is more serious than we all think. It will take just one bomb ( I know we are all mouthing God forbid... ) in any part of the South for anybody that looks like a northerner to become a suspect anywhere South of Nigeria.And I don't know whether by then we'll be able to hold nigeria together again. Boko Haram is seriously gaining on us and GEJ doesn't seem to be alive to it.I hope some well-meaning people will rise up to the challenge o.GEJ is obviously losing it.

Deri, you're getting more hateful, and more bigoted by the day!

Deri, although you have always been a notoriously hateful, thoughtless, ethnocentric bigot, these days you are becoming even much more irrational and irritating to any sensible persons, including people from your ND region.

You are free to show your hate and dislike for the Northerners, Muslims, Yorubas, Igbos, and all those who criticize GEJ, but try to be a bit more civilized, more reasonable and more logical, and less venomous and less hateful in your arguments.

I sincerely feel so sorry for you.

Is Gumi vindicated?

The cell phone interview between Boko Haram and the AIT has vindicated Sheikh Gumi.
The Sheikh was quoted in Kaduna to have said,the present insurgencies was not by Boko Haram but SNG.I am confident that the Sheikh is right that Boko Haram may be used in disguise to foment trouble.I still call on the Nigerian authorities to invite the Yusufiyya group to the round table for talks to resolve issues.And next we shall know who hides under the Boko Haram to instil fire.

I completely agree with u

Ameen, I pray God exposes whoever is involved in BH directly or iindirecty. Including those dat know them n refuse to expose tthem.We nid peace in dis our beloved country... Just a group of few with explosives n arms can not hold us to ransome...

Boko haram with their supporters.

These boko haram are all stupid &nonentity, which has no sense

Sympathizers might be probing 2 encourage BH 2 attack

Any sign of southern fear boko haram will attack in military tactics it is called probing

Phone call and the Disclaimer

I hope most of the readers on this platform would leave the Deri alone as he is entitled to his opinion whether right or wrong. His opinion does not in anyway guarantee a conviction of our thoughts. Well the important issue on the BH alleged call is that all options of security must be put in place in Abuja and Lagos to safe guard innocent Nigerians. I share in the SR report and reason that the style usually adopted by BH was not the one used in the AIT telephone chat.

THAT AIT PHONE CALL!.

i amconvived beyound reasonable doubt that DERI innitiated and made that AIT phone calls.Deri was involved in the Oct. first 2010 Eagle Squere bombing.If anybody doubt me, let who ever can do it, conduct an idependent investigation on the "PHENOMENON OF DERI" and you will be amased by what you will found.The very first time i heard of the AIT phone call i immediately concluded that it was not BH. We all need to pray for this country because BH has become a franchise that every mischief maker assume to unleash evil on Nigeria to achieve a desired cynical objective.

They are clueless and brainless fools

Count fools in your village and see if you will find anyone of you with the mind set for progressive discussion amongts yourselve. 35year of rule but you still can not speak in one voice? No more free food, you must pay your due in society. Educate your mind and free your begging wives and children a chance in life.

Is SR now an authority in anything Boko Haram?

SR expects us to disregard the AIT phone-in interview based on information from its "most reliable source". How ridiculous! Rather than disregard the AIT phone-in interview by persons claiming to be Boko haram, i'd rather disregard the baseless information from SR "most reliable source". At this moment every option must be explored to bring this mayhem to an end, including dialogue, so we could get on with our normal lives. Our security agencies are trying their best but clearly they'v been overwhelmed. Our security infrastructure over the years was built on the expectation that every citizen will be a good and law abiding. No preparation was made for this magnitude of terrorism, No proactiveness. The govt should consider dialogue if the IDIOTS called boko haram are sincere, then use the relatively peaceful period that'll follow to overhaul our security apparatus to a more proactive and responsive force.

Re:

Deri, pls find something relevant to do with ur time, Jonathan is suffering from chronic disillusional syndrome n its highly contagious. Take care U dnt come down with his fever n leave U a disillusioned goat.

Let just keep our prayer to Almighty Allah to end all dis and is not issue of calling name or puting blame on someone that is all I have to say to the nigerian ppl.tnx

I wonder why sometime people

I wonder why sometime people just talk senseless, hmm... maybe is the hankover

My fellow Nigerians,We need

My fellow Nigerians,We need not argue,insult or disrespect one another over the issues of our great nation Nigeria,a land filled with milk and honey,the giant of all African nations.
All we need do is pray in agreement. Lets rise up,so that God can step into our land. What He did to Pharaoh and the Egyptians can never be forgotten,never ever.He will do the same to the evil perpetrators in Nigeria if they fail to repent.
Jesus Baby!

@Deri

U just proved to the whole nija hw shallow minded u are. U are been paid 4 ur comments and u are not justifying ur pay to ur paymasters. U earlier claimed Buhari is BH. Now u said he made fake call to AIT and BH later claimed its a fake call. This prove only one thing...figure d meaning out ursef (ie if u r intelligent enough) and guide ur utterances henceforth.

It's beyond a pity!

In my humble opinion & advice, please gentlemen, you guys shouldn't use this platform to quarel, rather send a meaningful advice to the Nigeria President Representative - GEJ, to desist from pretending or fear & confronted the sect in the right manners, which I so believe God almighty would support him, to enable these devils bring this fight to an end, thereby stop killing poor & helpless civilians while the supposed target are secured & going about their normal government rub**h.

Deririous (delirious)

So sad to discover that onne of the constant contributors to this page, Deri is mentally in-balanced. Somebody please gag that retarded lying idiot. He's a reputational risk to the entire people of the south south.

DERI,,,, ARE YOU SICK ?

I read Sahara reporters everyday,I found out that you are the most stupid,moronic,idiotic,childish,uneducated,shallow minded person on this forum.Sometimes I wondered if you have any sense at all.Most of the time,you are very annoying,unintelligible,and also very rude.
Your type do not belong to a civil forum,where meaningful contributions are made to better 'our country'...Nigeria.
Please,if you do not have any positive response to the subject under discuss please,keep your mouth shut...and do like the rest of us who comes to the forum to get information.
I hope you listen DERI,and be A MAN !
