Boko Haram Issues Fresh Bomb Threats on Government Buildings in 19 Northern States & Abuja

Premium Times, a news media that has been notable for relating information from the extremist sect, Boko Haram, has informed the public of yet another threat. According to them, the sect says it is set to resume its deadly bomb attacks and is now targeting government-owned properties, offices and residential quarters in the 19 northern states and Abuja.

Spokesperson for the sect, Abul Qaqa, told Premium Times yesterday that the facilities being targeted are in retaliation for the destruction of properties belonging to its members and those it characterized as “innocent landlords” in some parts of Kano and Borno States.

Mr Qaqa also said his sect is giving a notice in advance of the attacks because, “we don’t want innocent people to be caught in the attacks. We are not happy that innocent people are dying in our war with the government. And that is why we have reduced our attacks in the past few days to enable us to strategize.”

He accused the Joint Task Forces, the inter-agency outfits in charge of security in Kano and Borno states, of harassing and arresting members of the sect in the two states.

“Most of these people live in rented apartments,” Mr. Qaqa claimed.

“But to our utmost surprise, after arresting them, some with their wives and family members, the JTF will bring out their properties. Both the apartments and the properties are then destroyed.

“This has become the new trend and it is becoming difficult for people to rent out accommodation to people, and a lot of people, including our people are homeless.

“Because of this trend, we have decided that in the coming days, every Nigerian, especially in the North, including Abuja, should vacate any government quarters or buildings – residential, office, classroom or anything owned by government.

“Every government building, whether occupied or empty will be blown up. Whoever is caught up in the attacks has his or herself to blame. We have done our best by issuing this warning,” Mr. Qaqa said coldly.

But the spokesperson of the police, Frank Mba, who refused to disclose whether or not his force is aware of the threat, said the security consciousness and readiness of the police is at its peak.

“For us, security is 24 hours,” Mr. Mba said.

“Whether there are threats or no threats from criminal groups, we will continue to provide the best level of security.

“We want to urge Nigerians to disregard whatever threats there are. We also want to reassure Nigerians of our commitments to providing the citizens and other inhabitants of utmost security.”

    i hope these guys know that,most of the government houses that were occupied by civil servants were sold to the occupants,which means they no longer belong to the government.if not thats like blowing up 80% of abuja.
    and i dont understand how they say they dont want innocent people to die.is that even possible? you bomb buildings at random and you dont expect any deaths?
    oh and they want to bomb schools too? these guys should just say they want to bomb half of nigeria.simple.
    a suggestion for boko haram,if you guys have enough balls,start with the presidential villa.
    and the police saying we shouldnt listen to the threats is mad.nonsense! watch work do they do in the first place

    I’m 16 and i just keep wondering what future lies for me in Nigeria. No one my age is interested in having anything to do with Nigeria in the future. for most of them its, after my secondary school, im outta here. Who is going to stay in Nigeria if things continue like this? I honestly see no future for my generation at the moment. Our government has proved its incapability to protect its citizens from any form of harm! people are dying! people are starving. who can help? God?

    • pele May 18, 2012 at 12:02 pm

      Ifey, dont give, its hard not to think the way you do but hang on it will get better, I know you’ve heard it before but keep faith in Project Nigeria!
      I dont like seeing disillusioned youths, I hope one day just one day it would all turn around!

      • ifey May 18, 2012 at 1:43 pm

        I will keep the faith thanks :) Lets hope our governments start making a change or the international community intervenes. lol i can ramble on forever..at this rate I shall write a book conveying my feelings on Nigeria haha. thank you though x

  • efe May 18, 2012 at 10:11 am

    @ Ifey.There is a future for you,these are just distractions to the great things God has in stock for you and your generation.Just hold on.All will be well with Nigeria

    • ifey May 18, 2012 at 1:37 pm

      thank you, I do appreciate your words and just like every Nigerian, (well most of us) I’ll hope for a brighter future for Nigeria.

  • Princess zee May 18, 2012 at 10:25 am

    If the so called war is with the government,then,why cant they just bomb the presidential villa, instead they are killing the innocent ones…Nonsense

  • faith May 18, 2012 at 10:52 am

    • MOI May 18, 2012 at 3:23 pm

      That is a very insensitive comment faith. I pray life never knocks on ur door, so you wont need to find out how hurtful your comment is. PS: I care, my 50year old mother works in Abuja

  • Priscy May 18, 2012 at 11:48 am

    @ faith, u wouldn’t care because u don’t stay in the north. For most of us living here in the north, its not easy at all. so don’t say who cares coz a lot of ppl actually do if u don’t. What we really need now is God’s intervention

  • Folake May 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Na wa oh…ona wan kil every body b4 ona go rest…if they distroy d northern states were wil they themselves stay..senceless pple

  • onyx May 18, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    @faith what a very stupid comment that is. so are notherners not humans with flesh and blood like you and me? that’s the level of insensitivity from most nigerians that nauseates me. just bcos you dont have loved ones there doesnt wish you’ll wish death on innocent people bcos they are ‘notherners’. please learn to be civil in your thoughts and speech or better still button your lips if you have nothing meaningful to say on serious issues as this. take care

  • Teewhy May 18, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    This time around all their plans will not succeed in Jesus’ name.
