Full transcription

"This is a message from the public awareness department of the Jamatu Ahlis sunnah lil daawati wal jihad, a group engaged in jihad in Nigeria.

"We wish to explain about the attack we carried out on Thisday Newspapers. Some of the reasons why we decided to attack some Media Houses, especially Thisday, is because the paper was used in dishonouring our prophet, Mohammad (SAW) during a beauty pageant in Kaduna in November 2002.

"At that time, some people who called themselves leaders of Muslims came out to say they have forgiven those who committed the offence.

"But based on our knowledge, we know that no one has the power to forgive anyone for an offence that God himself has given judgement, especially on an offence that has to do with dishonouring Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

"No one has the power to forgive this type of offence, and the judgement is for such persons to be killed.

"This lady that committed this crime, the judgement on her is to be killed at any opportunity; and the media house is also supposed to be driven out of existence whenever there is a chance to do so.

"We are just getting the opportunity to attack the media house, and we are hoping to continue these attacks until we drive them out of existence.

"It is our hope that Allah (SWT) will help his religion.

"We know that any genuine Muslim must have been deeply touched by the Thisday incident.
 

"Thisday newspaper is also leading in helping the government in fighting us, alongside other media houses that we will mention soon.

"Some of the offences of Thisday and other media outlets include: firstly, during the botched attempt to rescue some kidnapped foreign nationals in Sokoto; these media houses asked us if we have anything to do with the kidnap and we said we have nothing to do with it, yet these media houses reported that we were responsible for the incident, that was a lie against us.

"Secondly, when we sent a video of our leader, Abubakar Shekau, the media houses reported things that our leader did not say, such as that in response to the president’s threat to finish us in three months, we have also threatened to finish the government in three months. But the truth is, nowhere in the video did our leader said what they attributed to him.

"Thirdly, on the purported arrest of Abu Qaqa by the SSS, we have come out to tell them that the person arrested was not Abu Qaqa,yet the media continue to potray us as liars, and even said that our leader had ordered for Abu Qaqa II to be executed, and we are now searching for Abu Qaqa III.

"Recently too, they came out with another lie that one Mohammed Awwal Kontagora was the Abu Qaqa II that was executed, and that even his parents confirmed it, that was just a big lie to convince the world.

"The media also said that we have killed the father of Abu Darda, so as to pass a message to him, because he had leaked our secrets after his arrest by security agencies, and they  wanted him to know that he is one of our targets.

"These are all lies, and they are many.

"These media houses have committed a lot of offences that is detrimental to Islam, and we don’t have the power to forgive them. We will take revenge on them by God’s grace, some of these media houses have been categorized into three groups.

"The first group is the likes of Thisday whose offences are big.

"The second group we will also attack soon are Punch, Daily Sun, Vanguard, Guardian, Nation, Tribune, and National Accord, which are all newspaper houses.

"There is also VOA Hausa radio. All these media houses we will attack them including their staff and offices, by God’s grace.

"VOA Hausa for instance have recently started campaigning for people to support the government against us by exposing us,

"The next group that are on the verge of joining this list who if they are not careful we will attack very soon include, Leadership, Daily Trust, Peoples Daily and RFI(Radio France international)

"There is an online medium known as Saharareporters who have their office in New York, and who have made their site as a platform for attack against Islam. So we are warning them to stop making their site an avenue for attacking Islam, otherwise we will find a way of attacking them too.

"We resorted to using this medium to send our message instead of the normal tele-conference because of the fear by journalists; which made them refuse to conduct the conference.

"We are grateful to God for the success recorded on the attack on Thisday, and we hope to continue such attacks.

"Finally, the government has now resorted to arresting our wives and children and also demolishing our houses, like they did in Biu recently, that is why we have also resolved to start attacking government schools, especially, tertiary ones.

"We promise to demolish 500 buildings for any one of our houses that the government destroys.

"We have already started with Gombe and Kano."

So u beta think abt it or end up in Hell. Idiot

Boko Haram "You haven't got all the power"

Boko Haram are the worst animals I could have imagine. They don't even think about implications of their actions and the heavy gravity of negative results on the North. Do they think they have got all the power to fight? Why are they hiding, they should come out and face the army like Niger Delta Militants or Kill Police like Agbekoya. It is a pity that the Federal government would not learn their lesson and allow SNC to take place now until this violence becomes another civil in Nigeria...

Jehovah who is the father of

Jehovah who is the father of the Lord Jesus christ revealed Himself right from the beginning till israel period till Jesus period up till now.
Then Mohammed came at about 570+ years after the Death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and said there is no God (no Jehovah) but Allah the who claims is the creator and the true god.
and they would not allow Allah to fight for himself but been possessed by the demons called Al jinn they moved all about destroying shedding Blood for the god of this world to drink. No al Janna. Anybody that will not receive Life through Christ Jesus goes to Hell. Even their prophet could not save himself.
Thanks

the will of your father u will do

Boko Haram people are just following the instructions given by Allah in Quran. Nobody should deceive us, Boko Haram Sect are fundamentalists because they carried that instructions out to the letter. Islam entered everywhere and dominated the fore fathers by war, violence and force, not peace, the descendants are now following it religiously. Allah said anywhere they meet unbelievers, Jews or the People of the gospel they should oppress them and push to the narrowest part of the road.
who is the true and living God, the creator of all thing, what is His name?. is it Jehovah or Allah.
Jehovah creates and gives life, Allah destroys life that he did not create. definitely the two are not the same.

No more idea dats y u

No more idea dats y u vampires saying u'll attack media house. Your leader OSAMA was kill lyk ordinary RAT, we wil soon wipe out u n your generation.

Allahu akbar

I undrsnd whre u ar headin 2 and we niger state muslims are in full support of you. May allah assist u on ur mission. (amin)

nobody has monopoly of violence

Nobody has the monopoly of violence.

For your info, the only reason why we christians are reluctant to retaliate is because Jesus taught us so. Otherwise we are as capable of violence as these depraved beasts, even more so.

Were it not for Jesus we christians would execute horrific vengeance against our enemies to show them what it feels like to be attacked, murdered and maimed in cold blood for no reason at all.

May our God, who commanded us not to retaliate fight for us and punish these children of their father Satan.

In the history of this world,

In the history of this world, there have been cyclical times of bloodshed. if one looks through the last 500 yrs it will be clearly seen that there's always seasons of bloodshed followed by seasons of relative peace. This is always dictated by powers that are not human; by the powers beyond the physical world.
it appears that such a season has arrived in Nigeria and boko haram are the tools of choice this time.
My take is, if this is the season of blood then we have no choice but to take up arms and fight boko haram and their sponsors. if Nigeria is destined for another civil war then let us prepare for it.

Mr president please form a specially trained and equipped anti-terror force and unleash them against boko haram and their sponsors. If they are harbingers of death then may death be their constant companions.

Total annihilation!

Jesus is the only TRUTH and LIFE

I will never be surprised by the actions of any Muslim (boko haram or whatever). Islam as a religion was born out of deep hatred for truth,holiness,love and salvation. Then tell me how its followers could be peaceful. Any peaceful Muslim is only pretending or does not have power to carry out the evils in that religion. JESUS is the only truth which islam aims to destroy. But Jesus has overcome it by His blood shed on the Cross. So Christians should rejoice for victory over the demon called Islam through the Blood of Jesus.

Bokoharamist should start killing their northern leaders 4woes

The self distruction by north thru their agent bokoharamist is laughable, the macabre dance is quite timely and well thought out doom of inevitable disintegration. But why is these greed leaders of Northern Nigeria building boundaries of hatred and enemity across board with looted money by IBB. For I've 4seen Northern Nigeria as mamba and idiocy. Malodorous behaviours of the North is absurdity and shameful. Using bokoharamist to threaten president GEJ do to fraudulent amalgamation1914 Nigeria is abashed. There4 they should stop deceiving their idle and vagrant almajiri's."But why is the North afriad of SNC?" The Northern youths and fazeless boko haramist should rather annihilate IBB, BUHARI, GOWON, ABDUSALLAM, ATIKU, DANJUMA, BABAGIDA ALIYU, UMORUDIKO, EL-RUFAI and SANUSI LAMIDO instead of innocent citizens, 4ur under development and also quickly extricate themselves from poverty of the brain coz 87% of them are paranoia and they need help.

Softly, softly guy. Wit this

Softly, softly guy. Wit this temper and hatred of urs if opportuned, u will fare worse than BH.

Stop hidding under Islam

Al-Amduli lai Robili Al-Ameen that am a MUSLIM not BOKO HARAM.
Islam preach Unity, Peace, Forgiveness. This people are not Muslim, they kill human like goat. Kill both young and old, we all know that the present Government is what they don't want, they should stop fooling us.

This guys(BOKO AGOAT) are fools! The only way they could disseminate their informations to the public is through media. The same media they threatened to destroy. How unreasonable are this people? The northern region is financially crunched at the moment all in their own in-humane. The universities in some parts of the north are the beauty left, right now they (BOKO AGOAT) HAVE REsORTED to attacking colleges, universities etc, what wil be left of the north. Boko Haram, please continue the bombings,and when your country home is deserted come and i will take you as slaves. Fooooools

Please Talk Sense

My friend, this kind talk will not help the situation at all. If you are really an observer, 90% of the Boko Haram attacks are Northerners/Muslims. The innocents Muslims are suffering and at the time, people like you are adding salt on the wound. General critics against the Northerners/Muslims is NOT FAIR AND JUST. Let both Muslims and Christians keep on prayer, God will help. I hope you will understand me. Thanks.
