The Leader of Jama’atu Jama’atu Ahli Sunna lid Da’awati wal Jihad popularly known as Boko Haram, Imam Abubakar Shekau, has tagged President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as a coward to preach dialogue, saying the only way for a possible dialogue with his government is for Jonathan to repent as a Muslim.

Speaking to the world through a video posted on YouTube, shows a still image of Imam Abubakar Shekau sitting on a beige sofa, a Kalashnikov rifle at his back, Shekau said negotiations suggested by President Goodluck Jonathan between the sect and the government will not happen.

He said: “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.
