Boko Haram: “I am tired of this calamity,” Shekau says in new video

The Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, has said in a new video that he is tired of the calamity befalling his group.

“I am tired of this calamity; it is better I die and go to rest in paradise”, he said at the end of the 10-minute video.In the video, delivered chiefly in Hausa, Mr. Shekau couldn’t hide his frustration on the continued hostility and loss of his supporters to government troops.With a broken voice that clearly betrayed his emotion, Mr. Shekau pleaded with his non-combatant members across Nigeria to pick up arms and help him fight till he drops dead.The terror group’s leader, however, remained defiant.Flanked by two hooded armed men, Mr. Shekau said the latest claim by the military that the group had been sent packing from Sambisa forest was false.He boasted that he is still in Sambisa forestand still controls the territory.He said that his men would continue to fight regardless of the recent induction of Cameroonian soldiers into the Operation Lafiya Dole counter insurgency force.
Below is the full text of the translated speech by the Boko Haram leader.
“I have no lengthy message to deliver except on the issue of worshiping God alone and serving Him without getting tired.Ours in not like that of the unbelievers whose worship is like the spider web. Just like one of the leaders of unbelievers, who is like an ape, was recently boasting that they have formed a joint force with Cameroonian forces to fight us.“That they would not only chase us from Sambisa forest but also in all parts of Nigeria. So we too have declared that we donot want to see any Nigerian in Cameroon, in Chad, in Nigeria and even Benin Republic.So I call on our brethren in Abuja, in Lagos, in Benin, in Kaduna, where ever you find anyNigerian make sure you shoot him dead if he is deliberately against us; but if he is ignorant of our ways, teach him on how to understand our ways. This is our first message.“It is not about approaching you, because that has already been done by our God.

“Our second message is to attack anyone who pledge to Nigerian his country, to be faithful, loyal and honest, and serve Nigeria.Anyone who believes in protecting the interest of Nigeria is our target. The one whose creed is to develop western education where infidels are trained is our enemy. Whoever that stands on any creed other than that of our Prophet Muhammad brought to us; the one that his great disciples followed, should know that he is our avowed enemy and if he confronts us we will fight him.“In this job that we embarked upon, we are not going to boast too much about, but we pray that God should take our lives while onthis struggle and not on any other thing else. May God help us on this belief.“So you Nigerians especially the youth vigilante, we are going to fight you and that thing that drives you to pick up arms against us; we don’t care what they call you,be it Civilian-JTF or any kind of force. Just as you said you don’t want us on the face of Nigeria, so shall we too declare you persona non grata in Sambisa. Let anyone who has brains to think to avoid moving around Sambisa forest. Those of you the leaders of the troops will no longer have peace just like the way you think you have made here uncomfortable for us.“And you General Rogers that is currently leading the troops and boasting that that you have take-over Sambisa and have rescued some women, why have you not rescued the police women that we abducted? You liar, why couldn’t you rescue them? You are busy deceiving with images of vehicles that we seized from you and abandoned for over three years and claiming that you have killed us. If you have killed us, why are we still alive?“Oh you brethren of our holy creed, wherever you are, should rise up and fight for Allah. If you cannot do it there, then come over to our side and fight for the cause of Allah. You must know that whoever that fails to follow the teaching of the Holy Quran and Hadith cannot enter paradise. (In broken voice) Because the pattern of life in the world today is not Islamic. Wherever you are, even if you are in Saudi Arabia, and you have your gun, please stand up and fight, kill whoever you see that is not on our side.Kidnap and bring them to us. Our course is to establish our caliphate and die doing that.We may not be alive to see the caliphate but even if it comes to be after we have died, it is still a bonus on our side.“This is the message I have for you all. My name is Abubakar Shekau, the one that is an invincible enemy that you are fighting.“That is our stand. I am tired of this calamity; it is better I die and go to rest in paradise.”





So yesterday, Governor Samuel Ortom went on a Live Radio show and finally told his kinsmen, "DEFEND YOURSELVES"! 

If you're a student of history and a keen observer of what's been happening in Nigeria lately, you'll see the bold handwriting on the wall. NIGERIA IS OFFICIALLY A FAILED STATE BY VIRTUALLY EVERY STANDARD. Let me explain.

So, only about two months ago, the Lord said, "Raise me an Army of Secondary Celibates"...and He said, "if i have this army raised, i will humiliate the stubborn and wicked kings of Nigeria, i will make them eat the dust of the earth and the grasses of the field"-  #OperationNebuchadnezzar  .And he also said, "I will overturn their kingdom - turn it upside down". And God said, "watch, i will begin with them in January!" So fast forward to late January/ Early February.

Late January, Olusegun Obasanjo wrote a letter to President Buhari, urging him not to re-contest in 2019. Obviously, that generated a lot of buzz and still reverberates till this day. But that was not all. Obasanjo has gone ahead to set up a "political movement"...they don't call it a political party, it's a "movement"! According to baba, this movement will save Nigerians from Buhari's misrule. Shortly after Obasanjo's letter, El Rufai quickly came out with recommendations for restructuring after arrogantly dismissing its importance. Former SGF Babachir is arrested to show that the corruption fight is effective, etc. Too many frantic moves to win Nigerians over and turn them away from Obasanjo's "distractions". It didn't work! 

The Arewa youths suddenly declared that they are searching for Buhari's replacement in a recent press release. Guess who signed that press release? The same Yerima guy who gave the Igbos QUIT NOTICE from the North. 

While we were still trying to make sense of it all, Ibrahim Babangida's letter surfaced. Babangida's letter was like the nail on the casket. All of a sudden, there was a weird rebuttal, claiming IBB didn't author the first. Unfortunately, in a bid to sign IBB's name under the so called rebuttal, they appended "GCON" to his name. IBB is not "GCON". He is honored with GCFR. While all these were going on, IBB's media aide suddenly took to the media to clear the air. He made it clear that the Press release he published on behalf of his principal, IBB was perfectly in order and that mischief makers were behind the so called rebuttal. Talk about touching the lion's tail. 

Obviously, whoever it was that authored the rebuttal didn't like that very much. So, shortly after clearing the air, the young man, Kazeem Afegbua was declared wanted. And now, he's suing the Nigerian police for declaring him wanted on TV without proper or prior invitation. He claims that he's being declared wanted even when his principal, Ibrahim Babangida had not come out to renounce the press release he authored on IBB's behalf.


Listen, the die is cast! The APC government in Nigeria now knows that there are two fates awaiting them almost imminently with respect to 2019: It's either there is no 2019 OR they will never be allowed to smell it!  This is no joke. It's a reality that no living being can wish away. The storm is gathering and it's becoming clearer by the day that APC will barely finish their first term in office!.

So what next? Let me explain again...with this potential FATE hanging over the wearied neck of APC, DESPERATION will increase. If they are not suppressing opinions because God has raised elephants like them to fight them, they will ensure the country stays as farther away from peace as possible to ensure there is no room for changing guards. In the end, their destiny will still be spelt out in capital letters: L O S S

With Benue now as the long awaited trigger for Middle Belt's divorce from the century old Northern union, tell me what's left. This is why we all have to be extremely careful, watchful, and prayerful...because the herdsmen will do their Maths and see that their plan is heavily threatened now and they will descend into the "I've got nothing to loose" state of mind and unleash something worst than hell on Nigerians. Watch out! It's unfolding but God will keep His own. He has said it - "these people will go down in SHAME!" And He will perfect it. "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" - 1 Peter 5:8. Shalom!


How Buhari helped Fulani herdsmen ‘graduate’ from killing farmers to NNPC staff – Omokri

In a swift reaction to Fulani herdsmen's attack on staff of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), at Tse Torkula area of Benue State, former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, on Wednesday, attacked the presidency.
The former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, said the herdsmen had “graduated” from attacking and killing farmers to NNPC staff because President Muhammadu Buhari had treated their situation with “kid glove.”
Taking to his verified Twitter handle, the California-based Pastor wondered who the herdsmen would kill next.
Omokri wrote: “Due to the kid glove treatment President Buhari has given to Fulani herdsmen, they have now graduated from attacking farmers.
“Just like their colleagues in Boko Haram, they now attack and kill NNPC officials. I wonder who‘ll be next in the killing spree of killer Fulani herdsmen?”
Recall that armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen had yesterday killed an official of NNPC at Tse Torkula, Benue State. The deceased was working on the petroleum pipeline with his colleagues in the area.
