Boko Haram leader vows to attack Kano emir

By Aliyu Askira

Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has threatened to attack the Emir of Kano, Muhummadu Sanusi II, in retaliation for the emir’s call on Kano residents and other Nigerians to arm and defend themselves against the terror organisation.
The emir had earlier issued a call to arms after a series of deadly attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants in Kano.
Speaking at Kano’s central Mosque in October, the emir charged the people of Kano to defend themselves against the sect.
In a 19-minute new video first released on Saturday, Shekau did not claim responsibility for the Mosque attack, but said his group remained prepared to fight and kill anyone who challenges its ideology, and all non-Muslims and “fake” Muslims like the emir.

“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,” he said.
Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Jonathan, Obasanjo, Atiku, Babangida, Obama, Bush, Clinton, but the religion of Allah,” he said.
“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 late, you are should know that you are only but the King of Kano, King of Central Bank, King of money, you are only Sanusi Lamido,” he said.

“Our own government is defined as government of the Allah by the Allah and for the Allah not as you define you own government as the government of the people by the people and for the people.”
Continuing, he said: “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 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 his country.”
The terrorist leader said his members are ready to be slaughtered and killed so they can rest in heaven.
“Because you have been made the Emir of Kano, which is why you got angry and are calling on the vigilance groups and hunters to attack us. Let me tell you that the hunters and the vigilance groups will fail and you will also fail.”
