We Are at War With Christians-Malam Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram Leader.
Wearing a bullet proof vest and sandwiched between two AK-47s, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram, the radical Islamic sect responsible for the death of over 500 people in 2011 alone can be seen in a video released earlier today listing the group's grievances against the Nigerian state and President Jonathan. Also mentioned by name is the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, whom the group singled out for condemnation after his call on Christians to protect themselves which call he made after the Christmas Day bomb attack at the St. Theresa's Catholic Church at Madalla, near the Federal Capital Territory.
In the video, Abubakar Shekau boasted that the security agencies could not vanquish his group. It may be recalled that President Jonathan had himself admitted that the sect had infiltrated all arms of government including the security forces.
Speaking further in the 15 minute video, Mr. Shekau said the group could only hold talks with the government in accordance with the teachings of Islam.
He declared war on all Christians (presumably those living in Nigeria) "We are also at war with Christians because the whole world knows what they did to us,"
Shekau said that "the group's recent successes is an indication that they in the right path."
In the video, Shekau took out time to single out Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor as the object of the group's hatred and took offense to his call on Christians to defend themselves.
Shekau spoke in Hausa throughout the video.
