The threats by the new leader of terrorist group, Boko Haram to launch attacks on Christians where ever he finds them has angered a section of Nigerians.
The new leader of Boko Haram, Abu Musab al-Barnawi has vowed to attack Christians.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Wednesday, August 3, announced Abu Musab al-Barnawi, as the new leader of Boko Haram.
As soon as he emerged as the new Boko Harma leader, Al-Barnawi, granted an interview to the ISIS publication, Al-Naba, discussing the Boko Haram war with Nigerian government.
Al-Barnawi, who is Boko Haram’s former spokesman, also vowed to kill all Christians he could find.
The new Boko Haram leader blamed the West for spreading Christianity to the African region and also said that charities are assisting them in doing that.
“They strongly seek to Christianize the society. … They exploit the condition of those who are displaced under the raging war, providing them with food and shelter and then Christianizing their children,” he said.
The terrorist further warned that the Boko Haram fighters would retaliate the West by “booby-trapping and blowing up every church that we are able to reach, and killing all of those [Christians] who we find from the citizens of the cross.”
However, Al-Barnawi’s chilling threat against Christians has angered some Nigerians who accuse the new Boko Haram leader of cowardice and challenged him to show his face.
Others warned that his threat to kill Christians will lead to his untimely death.
