Boko Haram announces war on Christians to ‘end the Christian’ presence in Nigeria

Nigerian Christians are likely to be attacked in the coming weeks, a spokesman for the Islamic militant group Boko Haram is said to have told bikyamasr.com via IbTimes.

The Islamist group Sunday announced a “war” on Christians and said it would launch a series of “coordinated” attacks in order to annihilate the entire Christian community living in the northern parts of the country, bikyamasr.com reported.

 “We will create so much effort to end the Christian presence in our push to have a proper Islamic state that the Christians won’t be able to stay,” bikyamasr.com quoted an unnamed spokesperson of the group as saying.

Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for killing Christians in the past.

The extremist group last attacked a church in the central city of Jos late February, by setting off a bomb that killed three people and injured several others. Some Christian youth had retaliated by beating two Muslim men to death, a Voice of American report said.
