R-VIDEO EXTRA ::: Boko Haram Leader Sends Video Message To The President

So last night i was watching the news on CNN & BAM!!! they started talking about boko haram.....and they played a video message from the leader of this sect. I decided to post this so everyone else can see. His name is Imam Abubakar Shekau. He broke his silence and revealed why his organisation has continued to attack government agencies and Christians in the country.

He was the second-in-command to Mohammed Yusuf, who was killed by the police in July last year after days of fighting between security forces and the sect's followers. The police said in 2009 that Shekau was shot dead in the clashes. But a 25-minute video clip, shot on April 19 and obtained by the media showed Shekau answering questions from a journalist at his hideout believed to be in Maiduguri. Proclaiming himself as leader of the sect, Shekau said during the interview that with the death of the former leader, he "being the deputy (to Yusuf), stepped in and assumed leadership to continue in the pursuit of religious knowledge." Shekau was, besides being a second-in-command of the sect, the most influential and feared member of the Boko Haram group.
