Boko Haram has named popular newspapers and broadcast media as its new target.
The extremist group, Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihadl, popularly called Boko Haram, today named more media houses and staff as targets of its attack.
In an 18-minute video, the group threatened to attack more media houses, naming Voice of America (Hausa), Radio France (Hausa), Daily Trust, Guardian Newspapers, among others.
The group also gave reasons why it bombed Thisday office in Abuja and other media houses last Thursday.
“This is a message from jamaatu ahlis sunnah lil daawati wal jihad, and we wish to inform Nigerians our reasons for attacking some media houses,” the group said.
The video also shows that the radical group carried a live coverage of the bombing in Abuja and filmed the explosion at Thisday. The group created the new Youtube video under the name Alhaji Mani.
