Boko Haram leader rules out negotiation with government – The Nation

An audio message allegedly posted to the Internet by the leader of a radical Islamist sect in Nigeria threatened President Goodluck Jonathan and denied its members killed Muslim civilians in an attack last week that left at least 185 people dead.
The Associated Press reports that the video posted to YouTube, shows a still image of Imam Abubakar Shekau sitting on a beige sofa, a Kalashnikov rifle at his back.
Speaking at times in Arabic, English and the Hausa language of Nigeria’s Muslim north, Shekau said negotiations suggested by President Goodluck Jonathan between the sect and the government will not happen.
“He’s lying. He cannot do it,” Shekau said. “If Jonathan does not repent as a Muslim, even if I die myself, Jonathan’s going to see. He’s looking at me like I’m nobody, but he’ll see.”
In the message, Shekau acknowledged that Boko Haram carried out the January 20 attacks in Kano, Nigeria’s second-largest city that killed at least 185 people.
Gunmen from the sect armed with explosives and assault rifles, some wearing army and police uniforms, others suicide car bombers, attacked police stations, immigration offices and the local headquarters of Nigeria’ secret police.
However, Shekau denied killing civilians in the attack, claiming the sect’s gunmen tried to protect the more than nine million people who live in the important city in Nigeria’s north.
“We’re killing police officers, we’re killing soldiers and other government people who are fighting Allah and Christians who are killing Muslims and talking badly about our Islamic religion,” Shekau said. “I am not against anyone, but if Allah asks me to kill someone, I will kill him and I will enjoy killing him like I am killing a chicken,” he said.
