Another #Bokoharam to #GEJ.

Boko Haram asks President
Goodluck Jonathan to resign and
says it will not dialogue with the
Federal Government. The Jamaatu Ahlis Sunnah Lil
Daawati wal Jihad, popular called
Boko Haram, says it is not
negotiating with any government
representative and has no plans
to do so. The group, in a half-hour video
made in Hausa and posted on
YouTube, called on President
Goodluck Jonathan to resign, and
also accept Islam. The video appeared more of a
tirade of abuse with the group
offering no logical explanation or
reason for its demands and
positions. In the video, which was made by
the group’s leader, Abubakar
Shekau, in the form of an Islamic
lecture, the group claimed that
it doesn’t kill “women and
children,” but those “who have offended us, arrested our people
and killed them.” The group also claimed that
some people were committing evil
acts in its name and that it
would go after such people. The group also rejected any
plans by the Federal Government
to legislate on the number of
children Nigerians can have,
describing such proposal as
“blasphemy.” The Federal Government has
made dialogue with the Boko
Haram sect a major way of
curtailing the group’s
insurgency in Northern Nigeria. Ahmed Dasuki, the National
Security Adviser, had pledged to
seek ceasefire with the group
before the commencement of
the Islamic month of Ramadan
which entered its 16th day Saturday. Despite Mr. Dasuki’s efforts
however, the group became
more daring in its violence during
the period; attacking police
formations and the Vice
Presidents’ residence. Two Northern Emirs, in Borno
and Yobe State, also escaped
death in separate suicide
bombings linked to the sect,
which has caused the deaths of
several people in the north of Nigeria. Source: Premium Times
