English Translation Of The Boko Haram Leaflet Circulated In Kano Jan 21 2012

In the name of Allah the most Beneficent and the Merciful

We are those who are commonly known with the forbidden name “Boko Haram” while everyone know our true name is Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad (People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad).

A message to the people of Kano; You should know that the security services in the city of Kano have been using a trick to arrest our brothers while telling those who reside in the area that they are thieves or armed robbers. You should know that it is our brothers they have been arresting.

We have no intention of harming the citizens of Kano as long as they do not confront us. Our fight is against the government that is waging war against Islam, The security services and the Christian Association of Nigeria (C.A.N)- an organisation that has been killing Muslims and even perpetrated cannibalism by eating their flesh. In addition, we fight anyone who helps the above listed to wage war against us even if he/she is a Muslim.

In conclusion, any one that aid in the arrest of our brothers should await his own.

A message from the leader of Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad Imam Abu Muhammad Abubakar Bin Muhammad (Shekau)

  1. The atrocities of CAN is beyond measure. An example is the Yelwa massacre.

    The Yelwa massacre took place on May 2, 2004, in Yelwa, Nigeria. According to reports more than 630
    Muslims were killed by Christians. Christian men and boys surrounded Yelwa and many were bare- chested; others wore shirts on which they had reportedly pinned white name tags identifying them as members of the Christian Association of Nigeria, an umbrella organisation founded in the 1970s to give Christians a collective and unified voice as strong as that of Muslims. Each tag had a number instead of a name: a code, it seemed, for identification. They attacked the town.

    According to Human Rights Watch, 660 Muslims were massacred over the course of the next two days, including the patients in the Al-Amin clinic. Twelve mosques and 300 houses went up in flames. Young girls were marched to a nearby Christian town and forced to eat pork and drink alcohol. Many were raped, and 50 were killed.
