The Jamaʻat Ahl as-Sunnah lid-daʻwa wal-Jihād, widely known as Boko Haram, has derided the Nigerian Police ‘women’ in a video detailing how the sect attacked Giwa Barracks, Maiduguri on March 14, 2014.
The 24-minute video appears to confirm the sect’s sophistication as well as its access to modern weaponry.
The video shows the sect exhibiting their warfare techniques, shooting targets from specialized armed vans, as well as holding and firing grenades from the ground. It also shows the sect’s commanders coordinating operations by giving orders.
The footage contains details of how the sect launched attacks from several directions in and around the military barracks. It also shows hundreds of people the sect claimed to have freed from detention by the Nigerian military.
Warning Nigerian police officers to stay off their path, the sect sang, “Police give us way, you are too weak and small to stop us. You are all women and we understand you.”
The sect sang that their demand for Sharia cannot be compromised. They restated that their targets remained churches, Christians and the Nigerian state. Part of the song stated, “We are working for Allah and must bring Shariah to existence; we are committed to protecting Muslims from being annihilated by infidels. We are going to kill them. We will enter Churches and slaughter Christians and barracks. We are calling on all Muslims to come out and fight Jihad. If you joke, these infidels will annihilate Muslims. You see how they are killing our women and children.”
The group boasted that it had demonstrated its prowess in Borno, Bauchi and Abuja, and the infidels of Plateau, Kaduna, Adamawa and Gombe.
They vowed to fight for Shariah will all their might until success was achieved.
The Nigerian military was yet to react officially to the clip since it was posted yesterday.
This is a response from Nigerian Bishops
12 March 2014
Nigeria’s largest church network is calling on the country’s president for more protection from Boko Haram attacks.
“We will not keep silence amidst persecution Christians are facing,” Rev. Ayo Oritsejafor, president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, told World Watch Monitor on 7 March.
“The killings in Northern Nigeria are condemnable and act of wickedness to humanity,” Oritsejafor said. “It is unfortunate that worshippers are being killed in their homes and places of worship. We are not happy with this trend and will continue to pray to God to bring an end to this excruciating situation we are going through in Northern Nigeria.”
Oritsejafor appealed to government and security agencies to be proactive towards protecting lives and properties, and to prosecute the perpetrators.
Across Plateau state, at least 163 people have been killed in attacks by suspected Fulanis since the beginning of the year. Each wave of violence brings renewed criticism, from the Christian Association of Nigeria and other quarters, that Nigerian security forces are not doing enough to stop the killings.
On 9 March, President Goodluck Jonathan called for more prayer to defeat the insurgency.
“We need more prayers to end terrorism. With prayers and the measures put in place, we will surmount the challenges”, the president said in a speech at the opening session of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, in Abuja, the federal capital.
And as an experiment I placed these words into google
“catholic bishops ireland on nigeria violence”
I got nothing which suggests that the Irish Catholic Church says nothing about the attacks of Jihad on Nigerian Christians
