A spokesperson for the Islamic militant group Boko Haram says that they are planning a war on Christians over the next several weeks. Attacks are planned, and the ultimate goal is to eradicate Christians from areas in Nigeria. The militant group has claimed responsibility for several bombings on Christian places of worship all over Nigeria, including the most notable one that occurred on Christmas Day, leaving dozens dead. The government continues to reassure the population that it can fight back, but Boko Haram laughs this off. They say that the government “cannot be prepared for what is to come.”
Boko Haram is ruthless. Last Friday, they launched an attack that ended up killing three of its own movement’s members. The spokesperson expressed no regret, only citing it as “unfortunate.”
Since 2009, Boko Haram’s mission to eradicate Christianity from Nigeria has resulted in the deaths of over 1,000 Christians.
