A man claiming to be the leader of the radical Islamist sect, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau has vowed to attack the Emir of Kano, HRH Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, for his contribution against the activities of the sect in Kano State.
Sanusi had asked residents in the state in a publicized statement, to arm and defend themselves against the Islamist movement following recent attack on the Kano Central Mosque.
He also warned them to repent and practice Islam as preached by his sect, or be ready to pay the ultimate price. He also claimed that his group will continue to destroy lives and properties and those who condemn their activities
“Before I start talking to my brothers, who believed in me and the religion of Allah, not the religion of democracy, not that of western education. Those who believed in the religion of the Quran not that of the constitution and not religion of the Emir of Kano.
“We do not practice the religion of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, not the religion of Jonathan, not the religion of Obasanjo, not the religion of Atiku, not the religion of Babangida, not the religion of Obama, not the religion of Bush, not the religion of Clinton, but the religion of Allah.
“Now listen to me Emir of Kano. I am talking to you and only you because of your recent utterances. Let me inform you now that you are dead, you should know that you are only the King of Kano, King of Central Bank, King of money, you are only Sanusi Lamido.” He stated.
“Emir of Kano Sanusi, you are late, that our triumph is just for a period of time so you said. Even your predecessors who are renowned idol worshipers in Islamic history like ‘Abujahal’ could not succeed in fighting Islam.
“Yes, you can say that our success is for a period of time, because you are a king of Bank and a loyal citizen of your country.
“Because you are made the Emir of Kano, which is why you got angry and were calling on the vigilante groups and hunters to attack us. Let me tell you that the hunters and the vigilante groups will fail and you will also fail,” he added
Shekau also condemned all other Islamic faith in the country, describing them as pagans.
According to him, the Izala, Tijjaniyya, Qadiriyya and Shiite Islamic groups were pagans and vowed that his group would continue to kill their followers.
“We will kill you people, we will capture hostages and keep selling them,” he reiterated.
