Boko Haram issue xenophobia ‘payback’ threats

African-based terror groups Boko Haram and al-Shabaab’s threats to attack South Africans in retaliation for xenophobic violence should not be taken lightly.

Boko Haram vows to kill South Africans if xenophobia doesn't end within 24 hours

Boko Haram vows to kill South Africans if xenophobia doesn’t end

That was the warning sounded on Friday by local Islamic authority

Moulana Ihsaan Hendricks, president of the Cape Town-based Muslim Judicial Council (MJC), who said at its Crawford headquarters that “we should not be naive”.

Al-Shabaab has appeared on social media websites in images with the words “We will enter Durban” and “For all the foreign lives lost in SA there is a price to pay”.

A number of Nigerian media outlets reported late this week that Boko Haram “gives South Africa 24 hours to end xenophobic attacks, or face bombing”.

Nigerian Watch reported that South Africa’s “ongoing xenophobic attacks against African migrants could take an ugly turn for the worse”. It said its local “Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram” had warned the South African government it could “face the consequences”.

“In a brief YouTube video message, the murderous terrorist sect, responsible for about 13 000 deaths in Nigeria since 2009, threatened to export its terror to South Africa,” it reported.

“Boko Haram warned that if the South African government does not contain the situation, it will execute all South Africans living in Nigeria, Chad, Niger and other surrounding countries.

“It also threatened to attack South African embassies in those countries.”

Nigerian media have also reported that the Nigerian Youths Congress (NYC) would attack South Africans in Nigeria if xenophobic violence continued against African nationals.

Leadership newspaper reported NYC president Comrade Yakubu Shendam as saying that South African “citizens are scattered around Nigeria excelling in various businesses, and are being protected by the government”.

Lazy Zulus, they should be ashamed of theirselfs, they claim to have uhuru but yet the cowards where subjected to dehumanization for over 200 years in their own land by the whitemen, when even the weakess african nations succeeded in driving out the white pigs, and now you open that your dirty mouths to say that u don’t want other africans in you country, you forget that its this same Africans that supported you during your striving days, sensless dogs.
