Boko Haram Threatens To Kill Thisday Journalist (Read Their Letter)
Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect have threatened to kill “infidel” Adeola Akinremi, features editor of THISDAY.
The death threat – conveyed in an email to Akinremi on May 10 but seen by TheCable on Tuesday – was issued after the journalist, upon travelling to Adamawa state to investigate killings by the insurgents and the plight of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), wrote a piece titled, Why Boko Haram don’t deserve our amnesty.
“We have seen your hand against us . Inshallah you will die like other infidels that we captured,” read the mail, signed by one Abu Musab Abul-Barnawi.
“You have been joining our enemies. You are made yourself their mouth [sic] but we will get you insha Allah. This is a holy mission for Allah, so stop writing against us.
“You’re going too Michika calling yourself a brave journalist, but you’re a coward. We will get you. Its your government that talks amnesty, we are not looking for amnesty. Allah is with us. You’re now a walking dead and a prey to the Lions of Islam from the bullet of a passing car or a nearby rooftop.
“We are not asking you to repent, because of your error, we will use your blood to send warning to others. Those people from America and Europe that are using you against our mission will soon know the truth. Our wounded fighters will never give up. they will return to fight for Allah to get their reward. Your soldier will soon know the truth.”
