*Boko Haram Orders Christians Out Of Northern Nigeria, Threatens Army

-Masterweb Reports

Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group, speaking through a spokesman who identified himself as Abul Qaqa gave Christians three-day ultimatum to leave the north following President Jonathan’s declaration of state of emergency in parts of four northern states. The affected states were Yobe, Plateau, Borno and Niger states. Abul Qaqa speaking in Hausa, said Boko Haram was giving southerners living in the north three days to leave. “We find it pertinent to state that soldiers will only kill innocent Muslims in the local government areas where the state of emergency was declared. We would confront them squarely to protect our brothers. We also wish to call on our fellow Muslims to come back to the north because we have evidence that they would be attacked. We are also giving a three-day ultimatum to the southerners living in the northern part of Nigeria to move away.” Qaqa told journalists in Hausa, in a telephone conference on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Nigeria has begun sealing-off of international borders in parts of the states affected by the sate of emergency imposition. Security agencies are mapping out next moves in dealing with the dreaded Boko International borders are also to be closed in other hard-hit areas of the north. Nigerian northeastern border frontier with Cameroon is reported shut. A resident who crossed into a Cameroonian village to hawk petrol said he was not allowed to re-enter Nigeria at the Banki frontier. He said Nigerian army took over the border post. “They are heavily armed and have taken control of the border. They have stopped all cross-border movements. I tried crossing the border through the other two border posts, but the situation is the same. All the borders are sealed.” the resident told newsmen. ( Continues below...... )

Boko Haram Orders Christians Out Of Northern Nigeria

President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday declared state of emergency in parts of Yobe, Plateau and Niger states, all hit by Christmas Day bombings that left over 40 people dead. A state of emergency was also declared in parts of Borno State, a stronghold of the dreaded Boko Haram. The terrorist group claimed responsibility for the Christmas Day attacks. The group whose name in Hausa language means "western education is sinful" is modeled after Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan. It wants to impose sharia law across Nigeria through terror attacks in drawing attention to their demands.

ChukaI hope Goodluck read this message, granted as he might take it.
I like any other Nigerian in Diaspora feel highly disappointed by the president,s seeming apathy to the sufferings of > 90% of Nigerians in Nigeria by going ahead to remove the fuel subsidy.
If I may ask, what are facilities in place for the president to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal on average Nigerian. The reason for exporting the crude petroleum and importing refined product, has it been addressed, that the president feels that removing the subsidy is warranted, has Nigera attained self sufficiency in local generation of power and petrol to her citizens.
All these show Mr.president's lack of appreciation of Nigeria problems. How many jobs has he created, what social securities are in place for Nigerias that convinced him that removing the oil subsidy is the best for the country and her citizens. I was thinking Okonja Iwula should have done better here, but likens Nigeria to USA where she is coming from.
If I may ask, what is Mr. president planning to do with the money he intends to save from oil subsidy, and by then most Nigerians might be dead from hunger, ill health, poor quality education, mass poverty,joblesness, insecurity from police, Army and Boko Haram. Boko Haram is more threatening, and pressing than oil subsidy. Nigeria is gradually Somalializing and oil subsidy will tip it and detonate a situation the president never imagined. Mr president, take a careless trip to any of the filling stations in Abuja or Lagos and see for yourself the fruits of your economic ingenuity in less than 24 hours of it.
Mr.President, you should be a president to the living and not to the dead. You cannot be president to dead Nigerians from your poor economic policies, Kwashiokor and Marasmus from hunger, homelesness, joblesness, graduates without certificates, killed by Boko Haram in front of the presidential villa, etc.Mr, president it will not make you less president if you reverse this decision but rather endear you to the people as a listening president. PDP, will only live up to its name- poverty development party, if you insists on this sir.
Consider it sir

ANONYMOUS-1All borders in the Northern part of Nigeria should be sealed and all airports there placed on surveillance. FG should be weary of Chadian, Niger and Bourkina Faso borders through where vicious Islamic elements usually infiltrate our country and close them all to traffic untill Boko Haram is surgically expunged from our soil!

Boko Haram is an absordity in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-religious nation as Nigeria is and it must be resisted in full-measure by all well-meaning Nigerians who still want this nation together as one.

If the above is not done then, all current measures are likely to be threatened through those borders.

CharlesIt's quite unfortunate things are falling apart in this country being one of the most admirable in the world. There are some individuals who want this country to go into crisis so that 'they' can exploit our human resources, human exploitation and instituting a system of government that will make life more miserable for its citizens. Where is the effort of our HEROES past, what is the benefit of their fight from slavery freedom from our colonial masters? Am weeping for what will come out of this great country if things finally fall apart. May God have mercy on us.

Comment from: Ndueheidem [Visitor]
NdueheidemThe demand of this Group of Terrorists ist an evidience that Islam is slowing turning itself into a form of government instead of remaining a religion. First they demand Islamic laws ,islamic bank and now islamic soceity.
But Nigewria is not an Islamic State. Nigeria belongs to all. And it is enough of this NONSENSE. There muss be a separation from State and religion for the sake of peace. The government muss stand firm and make this clear to all her People. Nigeria shoul be ruled by the laws as stated in the Constitution and those made by our representativies in parliament and not trough a law made Millions of years a go witout relevant to a modern day society.
Every Nigerian should now cary a compusry identity card and muss be registered by the police. This is an effektive toools in checking crimes and an easy way of identifying thse Terrorrist.

Comment from: tony [Visitor]
tonyI think actions taken so far were not enough. The president should order for killing of the memebers of the boko haram an evil associated name, not even good enough to be called or hear.
when there is no power in the hand of leaders, they would cry if we have the power we shall make things all right,please exercise your powers, if it means arresting all the suspected ex-leaders master-minding these acts, you shoul do so.
soldier well done but gear more towards killing all that were involved in killing the innocent citizens.

Joseph AzembehIs BoKo HARAM fighting for the Moslems? Moslem leaders in Nigeria must make a clear stand for the citizens of this Nation to Know.Christians are suffering for no just cause.If our hands are clean, then, we must all team up and put a stop to the activities of this sect in the
nation.The sleeping dog must be allowed to sleep.

emmanuelAm tired of this country nigeria, let me ask the muslem this questions, do they think they can fight the christain if the christain really want fight? Is it bcos we are tryin to follow the commandment God dat say we should love our neighbour so they now using it has an advantage to always strike us? Even when d niger delta militant were active they were not attacking the masses and innocent people but only the government, so why are boko haram not doing the same if dey are angre about the government? I cant wait for this country to split.

AnnWhen the militants in the Niger-delta rose up to fight,their case was justified and understandable ''OIL PROBLEM'' This so called Islamic sect have nothing tangible to hold as to why they are causing this great Havoc on poor innocent souls,if Christians should take up their arms to fight them,ordinary faithful and Innocent Muslims will be killed because they will be seen as all ''Terrorists''.If they want to fight,they should unveil and identify themselves instead of hiding and making anonymous telephone calls.

EjeThe problems that Nigeria's have is that they do not want change, and how could any nation progress without adjusting to different policies.

It is the fault of ALL their LEADERS they are useless they are responsibe for EVERYTHING. If they are not responsible why didnt they stop or advice their brothers (boko haram) not to sound trumpet of war by asking christains to live the north withing three days? if the FG cannt handle this situstion then let there be blood rain.

Comment from: daniel - usa [Visitor]
daniel  -  usafor the simple fact that the boko haram displayed publicly a spokes man means that boko haram is an entrenched government may not be recognized. meanwhile, the migeria force may have just as many boko harams in it.

now the boko haram told the christians to leave the north by the third day. it is all well and good, because no body has instructed nigeria to divide untill now. why must jonathan , a weakling spend a dime fighting to include boko haram into nigeria, the very wise thing to do, let the goveernance of boko haram go, let the west go, if they want to, and let the south go.

in the ongoing, we will have three countries out of nigeria. and this situation is the least number of countries we could have out of present nigeria, it could be more, so what. try this it may cure the ills of nigeria. this damned boat is too rocky and could not be steaddied, hey, let us implode, it is going to cure our our headache, may be.

what are these idiots saying? they are simply saying that the whole domain of the constituents embodied into one nigeria increased at geometrical proportion, and the incliment numbers therefrom has rendered them corasive, agitative, unreasonative, insubonative, intorolative, and therefore combustible. and fearing imminent implosion, this cancer called boko haram took the charge to provide the ignition for this fire power play.

There were even schoolars who mysteriously lost their lives for preching against d activities of these people bh. To me, there's a strong force outside xtians n muslims trying to tear this country apart, aided by economic hardship, ignorance, idleness n injustice perpetrated by our rulers through corruption n self centeredness. Let our leaders be sincere, let them allow us free n fair election. Let them arrest, try n sentence any muslim who attack a xtian or a xtian who attack a muslim. Let there be justice n equity, there will be peace n progress.
