Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for last week’s series of attacks in Plateau state which left scores of innocent Christian men, women and children dead including a serving Senator, Dr. Gyang Dantong, and the lawmaker representing Barkin Ladi in the state house of assembly, Gyang Fulani, at a mass burial in Maseh, Plateau State.
Boko Haram in a statement signed by their spokesman, AbulQaqa, also called on Christians in Nigeria to accept Islam if they want these attacks to stop.
NaijaPundit brings you the statement from Boko Haram below;
The Jama’atu Ahlissunnah Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad,is grateful to Almighty God and hereby makes it known to the world of our success and attack on Barkin Ladi and Riyom in Plateau State on Christians, security agencies and members of National Assembly.
Like we said earlier, Christians in Nigeria should accept Islam, that is true religion, or they will never have peace.
We do not regard them as trusted Christians as some illiterates are campaigning because it was Christians that first declared war on Muslims with the support of government.
Like we said, we shall continue to look for government officials; they will not have the rest of mind.
We will attack their homes and security agencies in the same way they are attacking us and destroying our houses that we been renting.
We will continue with what we did in Rijiyar Zaki in Kano State.
To the general public, particularly those in Kano that are dragging their heads into this fight by supporting security agencies. Let them learn from what happened to people in Kurna quarters.
From now on anyone found wanting should have himself to blame. We do not have any agenda than working to establish Islamic Kingdom like during the time of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) no matter what will happen to us.
We heard the information going round that new National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki has gotten means of reaching us for a dialogue, that is a new lie.
