For  the  first  time since the  killing   of  Mallam Mohammed Yusuf, our leader, we  hereby make the following statement.

  1. First of all that  book  Haram  does  not  in  any  way mean  ‘Western Education  is  a  sin’ as the   infidel media continue to  portray us. Boko Haram actually means ‘Western Civilisation’ is  forbidden. The difference is  that while the   first gives  the  impression that we are opposed to   formal education coming  from   the  West, that  is   Europe, which  is not   true, the second affirms our believe in the  supremacy of  Islamic culture(not Education), for  culture is  broader, it includes education but  not   determine by  Western Education. In  this  case   we are  talking   of Western Ways of life which include: constitutional provision as if  relates to, for  instance the  rights and   privileges of Women, the   idea of  homosexuals, lesbianism, sanctions in cases of  terrible crimes  like drug trafficking, rape of infants, multi-part democracy in an overwhelmingly Islamic country like Nigeria, blue films, prostitution, drinking beer and   alcohol and  many other that are opposed to  Islamic  civilization.

2) That   the  Boko Haram is  an  Islamic Revolution which    impact is not  limited to  Northern Nigeria, in fact, we  are  spread across all  the  36 states in Nigeria, and  Boko Haram is just  a version  of  the   Al Qaeda which we  align with    and  respect. We support Osama bin Laden, we  shall  carry out  his   command in Nigeria until  the  country is totally   Islamized which   is   according  to  the   wish   of Allah.

3) That Mallam Yusuf has not died in  vain   and   he   is  a  martyr. His  idea will live for ever.

4) That Boko Haram lost   over 1000 of  our   Martyred members killed by    the  wicked Nigerian army and police mostly of  Southern Nigeria extraction. That the  Southern states, especially the infidel  Yoruba, Igbo and Ijaw infidels will be   our immediate target.

That the killing   of our leaders in  a  callous, wicked and   malicious manner will not  in any way deter us. They have lost their lives in the  struggle for  Allah. Having made the following statement we  hereby reinstate our demands:

i)  That we  have   started a Jihad in Nigeria which no  force on earth can  stop. The aim is to Islamize Nigeria and ensures the rule of the   majority Muslims in the country. We will  teach Nigeria a lesson, a very bitter one.

ii)  That from the   Month  of august, we  shall  carry   out    series   of  bombing in the Southern and Northern Nigerian cities, beginning with Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu and Port Harcourt. The bombing will  not  stop until Sharia and Western Civilization is  wiped off from Nigeria. We will not  stop until these evil cities are tuned into ashes.

iii) That we  shall  make the  country ungovernable, kill  and   eliminate irresponsible political leaders of  all leanings hunt and   gun down those who oppose the    rule of Sharia in  Nigeria and   ensure that the  infidel does not   go  unpunished.

iv) We promise the West and Southern Nigeria, a horrible pastime. We  shall focus on  these areas which is  the  devil empire and  has been the one encouraging  and    sponsoring Western Civilization  into   the   shore of   Nigeria.

v) We call  on all Northerners in the Islamic States to  quit the   followership of  the   wicked political parties  leading   the  country, the corrupt, irresponsible, criminal, murderous political leadership, and    join the struggle for Islamic Society that will be   corruption free, Sodom  free, where security will  be guaranteed and there will be peace under Islam.

vi) That   very soon, we  shall  stir Lagos, the  evil city   and  Nigeria’s    South    West    and  South   East, in  a  way no one has ever done before. Al Hakubarah
