The spokesman who goes by the name Abul Qaqa said the attacks were in response to an ultimatum he issued on Sunday giving Christians three days to leave the country’s mainly Muslim north.
Abul Qaqa, who has claimed to be speak on behalf of Boko Haram numerous times in the past made this statement to journalists in the northeastern city of Maiduguri by phone.
“We are responsible for the attacks in Mubi and Gombe...We are extending our frontiers to other places to show that the declaration of a state of emergency by the Nigerian government will not deter us…. We can really go to wherever we want to go. The attacks are part of our response to the ultimatum we gave to southerners to leave the north,” he said.
He called on the federal government to release all arrested Boko Haram members as a condition for attacks to stop.
Hmmh...na wa o! How about you stop killing innocent people and channel your grievances in a reasonable and civilized manner. By the way what has happened to Jomo Gbomo of MEND days.
