In a video-clip released on the Internet on January 20, 2015, Boko Haram Leader Abubaker Shakao said: "Charlie! May Allah curse you! François Hollande, may Allah curse you!" He set light to a Nigerian flag and cried: "Nigeria is dead!"


Following are excerpts:


Abubakar Shakao: Praise be to Allah, who inflicted sorrow upon the foreheads of the infidels, such as Izrael – i.e. Israel – and Britain – i.e. England. Praise be to Allah, who infuriated their parents, America and France.


[...]


Among the infidels, there are the supporters of democracy and others. Praise be to Allah, who commanded the mujahideen to kill them. Oh people of America, die in your rage. Oh people of Israel, die in your rage. Oh people of France, die in your rage.


Oh infidels of the world, we adhere to our religion. We adhere to the faith of our Prophet Muhammad. Anyone who curses our Prophet is an infidel.


[...]


There is no god but Allah. [How dare] you curse our Prophet Muhammad, and draw a picture of him? Where did you get the picture of our Prophet?!


Charlie! May Allah curse you! Charlie! May Allah curse you! François Hollande, may Allah curse you, if you do not repent.

Abubakar Shakao (in English): I pledge to Allah, my God, to be faithful, loyal, and honest, to serve Allah with all my strength, and to defend His Islam.


Allah Akbar


Other members: Allah Akbar.


Abubakar Shakao: Allah Akbar.


Other members: Allah Akbar.


Abubakar Shakao: Nigeria is dead. The constitution is dead. Islam and Islam. Islam and Islam.
