Nigeria: Our Target is Aso Rock, Boko Haram Declares

Daily Independent (Lagos)
13 July 2011

Abuja/Lagos/Maiduguri/Ilorin/Kaduma — Our target is Aso Rock, the federal seat of power, Boko Haram Spokesman, Abu Zaid, declared in a daring telephone press conference in Maiduguri on Wednesday, during which the sect claimed responsibility for bank robberies and attacks on the Joint Task Force (JTF).

But Zaid denied that the Islamic jidhadists threatened to attack the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID).

"God forbid! We don't do our things like that. What problems do we have with the University of Maiduguri?" he clarified.

"It is belittling on our side to attack university students when our targets are places like Aso Rock and other high profile places in Abuja."

"In this battle we will not relent until the signs of Allah shine on all his servants in this country. Sharia will not trample on any body's right or freedom.
