Boko Haram Threatens To Bomb Major Government Buildings In 19 Northern States and Abuja.

According to Premium times
report,Boko Haram terrorist sect has vowed to resume it’s
deadly attacks inNigeria.

In this latest threat, they vow to bomb major government- owned properties, offices and
residential quarters, in the 19
Nigerian northern states
including Abuja. In what appears to be a
defensive response to
growing public anger and a
tactical shift in operational
approach, the
spokesperson for the sect, Abul Qaqa, told PREMIUM
TIMES, Thursday afternoon,
that the facilities being
targeted are in retaliation
for the destruction of
properties belonging to its members and those it
characterized as “innocent
landlords” in some parts of
Kano and Borno States. In a prompt response, the police
asked Nigerians to disregard
such a threat and go about
their normal business, adding
that it is battle ready to repel
any attack by “any criminal group”. It is not clear whether the State
Security Service is aware of the
fresh threat by the group. The
spokesperson for the agency,
Marilyn Ogar, declined comments,
saying she would not respond to telephone enquiries. In a move indicating that
the group is battling for its
share of the minds of the
public, Mr Qaqa also said his
sect is giving a notice in
advance of the attacks because, “we don’t want
innocent people to be
caught in the attacks. We
are not happy that
innocent people are dying
in our war with the government. And that is
why we have reduced our
attacks in the past few
days to enable us to
strategize.” He accused the Joint Task
Forces, the inter-agency
outfits in charge of
security in Kano and Borno
states, of harassing and
arresting members of the sect in the two states. “Most of these people live in
rented apartments,” Mr. Qaqa
claimed. “But to our utmost
surprise, after arresting
them, some with their
wives and family members,
the JTF will bring out their
properties. Both the apartments and the
properties are then
destroyed. “This has become the new
trend and it is becoming
difficult for people to rent
out accommodation to
people, and a lot of people,
including our people are homeless. “Because of this trend, we have
decided that in the coming days,
every Nigerian, especially in the
North, including Abuja, should
vacate any government
quarters or buildings – residential, office, classroom or
anything owned by government. “Every government
building, whether occupied
or empty will be blown up.
Whoever is caught up in
the attacks has his or
herself to blame. We have done our best by
issuing this warning,” Mr. Qaqa said. What else can we do than
to continuously seek the face of
God through prayer.
