Boko Haram says it will behead Cameroon President

Islamist terrorists have threatened to behead the Cameroon President, Paul Biya, calling him the ‘biggest Christian of Cameroon’.

In a new video released over the weekend a Boko Haram Caommander declared: “I would behead you Paul Biya. It’s me that would behead you with the left hand, be ready,” a Boko Haram commander declared in French pointing to Biya’s picture in a news magazine.

The man then drops the picture on the ground, and in s slow motion edit, he stomps on the picture. “I would behead you, imbecile, sluggard,” he added.

Paul Biya is a known Roman Catholic Christian who attends services in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon.

The terrorist group warned Cameroonians in other cities that the Boko Haram terror group would launch attacks in a list of cities the names of which he recited.

Part of the propaganda video showed u
niforms, shoes, helmets and caches of bullets the terrorist claimed they took from Cameroonian soldiers.

The Cameroonian government is yet to respond to the video.

The video suggests that a faction of the Boko Haram terror group is organizing in the northern region of Cameroon and seems to be building momentum. A high ranking military officer told Global Christian news: “These threat cannot be taken lightly. The Joint Military Task Force, consisting of the countries in the region must step up their offense to check this threat.”

According to reports say at least 200 Cameroonian soldier have been killed in the campaign against the Islamic terror group.
