“O Muslims! Do not forget that Allah has enjoined us to make provisions for fighting the disbelievers.” They said it. They must be a gang of greasy Islamophobes. “Jos Bombings: Group Claims Responsibility,” by Imam Imam and Seriki Adinoyi in This Day, December 27:
A previously unknown group, Jama’atu ahlus-Sunnah Lidda’awati wal Jihad, yesterday claimed responsibility for the Christmas Eve bomb blasts in Jos, Plateau State, and attacks in some parts of Borno State which claimed 32 lives.
The blasts led to reprisal attacks in other areas such as Anguwan Rukuba, Tina Junction, Nasarawa, Dutse Uku and Rikkos Quarters….
In a statement posted on website (http://mansoorah.net), the group said it carried out the attacks “to start avenging the atrocities committed against Muslims in those areas, and the country in general”.
There was no independent confirmation if the group actually exists as it is also suspected that a agent provocateur could be at work with the claims.
The group also promised to continue with the attacks on “disbelievers and their allies” who are fighting Muslims.
The statement, entitled: “A statement regarding Jos and Borno attacks”, read: “In the name of Allah the mighty Who has power over everything, Who made fighting the disbelievers an obligation until justice is established on earth.
“May peace and blessings continue to be upon the last messenger who wage (sic) jihad, the best of it.
“O Nations of the World, be informed that verily the attacks in Suldaniyya (Jos) and Borno on the eve of Christmas was carried out by us, Jama’atu ahlus-Sunnah Lidda’awati wal Jihad, under the leadership of Abu Muhammad, Abubakar bin Muhammad Shekau (May Allah preserve him), to start avenging the atrocities committed against Muslims in those areas, and the country in general. Therefore we will continue with our attacks on disbelievers and their allies and all those who help them, until Allah’s deen triumph by His Grace and Will.
“O Muslims! Do not forget that Allah has enjoined us to make provisions for fighting the disbelievers, and for that we are reminding you that the disbelievers of the world are fighting Islam and Muslims. So you must stand and strive to protect your religion and life.
“With Peace Jama’atu ahlus-Sunnah Lidda’awati wal Jihad is waging Jihad in the country called Nigeria.”…
