Is Nigeria Dead? What Does Boko Haram Want?–Republic Reporters
New York[RR]Abuja–Critics, commentators, religious leaders from various sects wonders if Nigeria could be considered dead, they wondered further what Islamic fundamentalists popularly known as Boko Haram, wants from the country. For record, Boko Haram has almost brought faltering Nigeria State to its kneels by rampant bombing across the country particularly Northern part of the country (Yobe,Borno, and others all in the North), destroying properties, lives and businesses what billions of dollars, reports say.
A respected commentator, Chukwuemeka Nnemeka Onumonu said Nigeria is dead, opposition party, All Progressive Congress, APC is headquarters of Boko Haram. He added, “Some have ears and refuse to hear;Eyes and refuse to see;Mouth and refuse to speak;Brain and refuse to discern..”, he warned.
“Is it then a surprise that as Boko Haram continues to speak clearly and spread mayhem across the length and breathe of Nigeria, these hard to hear individuals continue to ask what Boko Haram wants; as if their refusal to understand the clearly stated demand of Boko Haram will resolve the issues raised. While they bury their collective heads in the sand because of their refusal to accept the inevitable – the demise of the abomination Nigeria, thousands of innocents lives continue to be sacrificed on the altar of ‘the British Birthed Abomination’ Nigeria, an insult to mother Africa, a fictitious country designed by the British government to rape, blunder and impoverish the ethnic nationalities in in this forced union, while a handful of their crowned despots, the born-to-rule and their retrogressive coalition that has now morphed to the regressive party, the expired APC, continue to pillage and loot the country…”, he fumed.
On August 09, 2009, Mallam Sanni Umaru,Acting Leader Boko Haram listed what BK wants. He said: “The Islamic sect Boko Haram has declared total Jihad in Nigeria, threatening to Islamise the entire nation by force of war.
“In a statement dated August 9, 2009 and made available to Vanguard, the sect whose activities led to the lost of hundreds of lives in northern Nigeria recently declared that their leader Yusuf who was killed in controversial circumstances during the crisis, lives forever.
“In what looked like a declaration of war on the rest of the nation, the Boko Haram sect said it will unleash terror in Southern Nigeria this August, beginning with the bombing of Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu to make good its words.
Republic Reporters beneath showcases BK statement issued by Boko Haram August 9, 2009 for all to read:
WE SPEAK AS BOKO HARAM
For the first time since the Killing of Mallam Mohammed Yusuf, our leader, we hereby make the following statements.
1) First of all that Boko Haram does not in any way mean ‘Western Education is A sin’ as the infidel media continue to portray us. Boko Haram actually means ‘Western Civilisation’ is forbidden. The difference is that while the first gives the impression that we are opposed to formal education coming from the West, that is Europe, which is not true, the second affirms our believe in the supremacy of Islamic culture (not Education), for culture is broader, it includes education but not determined by Western Education.
Boko Haram members and their late leader, Mohammed Yusuf
In this case we are talking of Western Ways of life which include: constitutional provision as if relates to, for instance the rights and privileges of Women, the idea of homosexualism, lesbianism, sanctions in cases of terrible crimes like drug trafficking, rape of infants, multi-party democracy in an overwhelmingly Islamic country like Nigeria, blue films, prostitution, drinking beer and alcohol and many others that are opposed to Islamic civilisation.
2) That the Boko Haram is an Islamic Revolution which impact is not limited to Northern Nigeria, in fact, we are spread across all the 36 states in Nigeria, and Boko Haram is just a version of the Al Qaeda which we align with and respect. We support Osama bin Laden, we shall carry out his command in Nigeria until the country is totally Islamised which is according to the wish of Allah.
3) That Mallam Yusuf has not died in vain and he is a martyr. His ideas will live forever.
4) That Boko Haram lost over 1000 of our Marty members killed by the wicked Nigerian army and police mostly of Southern Nigeria extraction. That the Southern states, especially the infidel Yoruba, Igbo and Ijaw infidels will be our immediate target.
5) That the killing of our leaders in a callous, wicked and malicious manner will not in any way deter us. They have lost their lives in the struggle for Allah.
Having made the following statement we hereby reinstate our demands:
1) That we have started a Jihad in Nigeria which no force on earth can stop. The aim is to Islamise Nigeria and ensure the rule of the majority Muslims in the country. We will teach Nigeria a lesson, a very bitter one.
2) That from the Month of August, we shall carry out series of bombing in Southern and Northern Nigerian cities, beginning with Lagos, Ibadan, Enugu and Port Harcourt. The bombing will not stop until Sharia and Western Civilisation is wiped off from Nigeria. We will not stop until these evil cities are tuned into ashes.
3) That we shall make the country ungovernable, kill and eliminate irresponsible political leaders of all leanings, hunt and gun down those who oppose the rule of Sharia in Nigeria and ensure that the infidel does not go unpunished.
4) We promise the West and Southern Nigeria, a horrible pastime. We shall focus on these areas which is the devil empire and has been the one encouraging and sponsoring Western Civilisation into the shores of Nigeria.
5) We call on all Northerners in the Islamic States to quit the follower ship of the wicked political parties leading the country, the corrupt, irresponsible, criminal, murderous political leadership, and join the struggle for Islamic Society that will be corruption free, Sodom free, where security will be guaranteed and there will be peace under Islam.
6) That very soon, we shall stir Lagos, the evil city and Nigeria’s South West and South East, in a way no one has ever done before. Al Hakubarah
ITS EITHER YOU ARE FOR US OR AGAINST US

Acting Leader Boko Haram

Mr. Onumonu added: “For those whose excuse is that the core-North will not buy into the peaceful dissolution, below is a little read news item that should strengthen their backbone as published by other sources.
“In a recent encounter with the spokesperson of the Kano Emirate, Dutse Emirate, & Katagum Emirate by our newsmen in Kano, the spokepersons have indicated that their Emirates are ready, willing, and praying for the Actualization of an Independent Arewa States out of Nigeria. This is the first time since Nigeria’s Independence that any of the Emirates ever claimed to support a secession movement.
“In reply to the letter sent by the Movement for the Actualization of an Independent States of Arewa (MAISA). The emirates have promised their full support to the movement, but however ascertain their demand for peaceful negotiations at all times with the Nigerian Authorities. They also demand the movement further consultations each time they are taking any further action. Complaining that the formation of Nigeria as it is today is an err, and has become a necessity for each of the three major ethnic groups to rule their own people, quoting a remark by the former Emir of Gwandu, that “Nigeria is a country of 3 slaved Nations, and these Nations need to be freed sooner or later!”
“Since its inception, MAISA has though remain carrying its activities in secret, however, they’ve revealed a new flag in recent months which they will be using throughout the movements activities, and earlier source indicates that it is the intended flag of Arewa Republic.
“In a similar event, the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have indicate their readiness and willingness to support MAISA in carrying out its peaceful secession activities.
“All efforts made to contact an official of MAISA by Labarai.com have failed, however an email message received from someone claiming to be from MAISA is still unconfirmed.
That’s what Boko Haram think it wants.. what do you think Boko Haram wants?
Nnaemeka Mene Onumonu-Uzoaru said: “Oha Ka (The PEOPLE are SUPREME) Nigeria is DEAD! Long Live the Islamic Republic of Arewa!
Long Live the Republic of Oduduwa! Long Live other African centered Republics born from the just demise Nigeria! Long Live Mother Africa…”, he said.
Chidi Molokwu reacts to Onumonu-Uzoaru remarks:”Please can you tell me which Republic the Igbo people would belong to?
Is there a reason you have not mentioned Biafra?Please clarify..”, he inquired.
