Bomb attacks threatened in new Nigerian Jihadi video


The Islamic Jihadist group, Boko Haram has released a video, on Friday, warning Christians that they will be attacked with suicide bombs if they do not convert to Islam.

“We are not interested in compromise or settlement. We only want you to repent and convert,” declared a Boko Haram commander. “You will see bomb attacks on towns, you will see the bomb attacks on your churches, infidels!”

He accused the Nigerian government of lying about its military successes against Boko Haram. He also disputed the claim by the Nigerian government that only five Boko Haram leaders were released in exchange for the Chibok girls.

“You will soon know how many you have released when we start. I am sending this warning to you all, very soon you will see us within you,” he said.

“Are you all not afraid of bombs and don’t fear Allah?! You are not afraid of the ungodliness you perform against Allah! You are afraid of bombs. These days you will see bombings in your cities. It is Abuja you protect (your fortress) Buhari you can’t stand God, Buratai you are a liar! Your only salvation is to convert! Do what Allah wants and then have peace.”

He also challenged the government’s claim of taking Sambisa forest, where Boko Haram had its command post.
