Boko Haram threatens to eradicate Christianity in northern Nigeria

Catholic World News - March 08, 2012

A spokesman for the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram has said that the group “will launch a number of attacks, coordinated and part of the plan to eradicate Christians from certain parts of the country.”

“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,” the spokesman continued.

The threat from Boko Haram, which means “Western education is a sin,” comes two months after the group ordered Christians to leave northern Nigeria.
