The video message in Hausa language, released in the late hours of October 31, 2014, Friday, has been studied, analysed and translated into English by reporters of PremiumTimes and SaharaReports.
Read the full transcript of ‘Imam’ Abubakar Shekau’s speech below:
“I’m using this opportunity to send this message to the infidels in Nigeria and the rest of the infidels in the world in Hausa vernacular, the tongue that many understand and if the need arise, I will explain in Fulani and Kanuri, but let us explain to you briefly.
“You people should understand that we only obey Allah, we tread the path of the Prophet. We hope to die on this path and get eternal rest in our graves, rise up in bliss before our Lord and enter Paradise (quotes from the Qur’an). Our goal is the Garden of Eternal Bliss. May Allah protect us.
“You followers of the constitution, have you forgotten your laws? What you said in your constitution when we were preaching in Maiduguri town? In you constitution, you cite section 8 verse 1, 2 to 3 in that your cursed document referred to as the constitution, that it is a law and not reversible. You came out in your radio and newspapers and say we are fighting for Islamic Caliphate, it is that constitution that stops us preaching in Maiduguri, and we move out because of exile Allah tasked us to embark.
“Have you forgotten that? And it is you today claiming we made truce with you? In what way did we make truce? Which kind of negotiation, with whom? That your Danladi, the infidel like you, whom we will not spare and will decapitate if he falls into our hands today?
“Where do we know him, not to talk of him representing us? Who is Danladi in this world?
“Allah knows everything. Allah is witness (quoting from the Qur’an).
“Therefore I tell you (that) we have not made ceasefire or dialogue with anyone. Only battle, hitting, striking and killing with guns which we are hungry for like food with Maggi cubes. We are on course; our focus and determination is to see that only Qur’an is being use in running the world, with Allah this is what we put ahead of us.
“It is said that the President of Chad Idris Deby, a Nigerian ambassador, the people of Cameroon and us met and agreed on a truce. How? Don’t you know we are still holding your German hostage? Your white man from Germany is with us presently, he is always crying and, if we like, we will cut him into pieces, or gun him down. We are not afraid of anyone except Allah; this is our job.
“Who have freed girls from Chibok whom we abducted in their school, those that Shekau who is now talking, seized, brought them and kept them in the place he chose for more than six months now.
“Allah has proved too difficult for the infidel, Allah has proved too difficult for the tyrant, Allah has proved too difficult for the United States, Allah has proved too difficult for a plane called drone, bastard. Allah has proved too difficult for everyone. Allah is mightier than everyone.
“Surprisingly, if the parents of Chibok girls know the condition their daughters, they will not be worry; it is either to be with their conversion to Islam or you die with pains.
“Don’t you know the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls have converted to Islam? They have now memorised two chapters of the Qur’an. They have seen themselves in the Books of Luke and John that Christians have corrupted the Bible. Girls from Chibok confessing Islam is the true religion! They have realized that Christians have filled the Old Testament with lies.
“A small girl from Chibok insisting that Islam is the true religion, is just a six-grader. We have married them off, and they are in the house of their husbands. (Laughter).
“Fury upon fury. Shekau can infuriate. It is said Shekau is leadership position. Which leadership? Do you think we are practising traditional monarchy? (Laughter). It is the same Shekau whose father is Muhammadu, his son is Muhammadu, his name is Abubakar. It is the same Shekau, he is still the one. Shekau, eat the heart of infidels since infidels want to disobey Allah.
“We did not negotiate with anyone. We did not negotiate with anyone. We did not negotiate with Chad. We did not negotiate with Cameroon. We did not negotiate with Nigeria. We did not negotiate with the Chadian ambassador. We did not negotiate with Africa. We did not negotiate with Asia. We did not negotiate with Europe. We did not negotiate with America. We did not negotiate with the useless United Nations of nonsense.
“What is the dialogue? We did not negotiate with anyone. It is a lie. It is a lie. We will not negotiate. What is our business with negotiation? Allah said we should not (quoting from the Qur’an).
“We follow the Qur’an. We will not be teased by any infidel. Now you don’t know what to do, you want to convince your leaders that are tired of you, that have realised your lies, including your Solomon Dalung, your Abdullahi Wase and the likes of Senator Ndume.
“They are tired of you, they have realised you are deceiving them, you are playing with their intelligence, you just want to protect your own interests. It is bad for you.
“We are working for others to convert Islam. I don’t care whatever you say. What is my business with you? Allah is my focus. I left my parents’ home. I left my mother and my father, I left my relations and joined those who want to practise Islam (quoting from the Qur’an). And you are trying to deceive people with ceasefire negotiations.
“I thank Allah. I started with a single knife and today I have seized more than 20 of your armoured vehicles, they are in my possession.
“It is said Shekau is not a person, but a position. Bravo to you, Orator. Well done to you, SSS, who studied in Israel. Well done to you the expert in psychology, well done you the expert in biology, well done you believer in ‘I pledge to Nigeria my country’. This is what you said.
“You pledge to Nigeria your country. Right? Me, me Shekau, I pledge to Allah my God. If you don’t know, today you will know, I pledge to Allah to be faithful. This is Shekau. Idiot like you!
“This is my speech in brief; this one is okay for you, and you should convert to Allah and follow the Qur’an. You should follow the Qur’an, you should follow the Qur’an.
“You are unlucky to have missed the Qur’an and stopping those doing it; it is a lie, it is a lie. Whoever refuses to listen will be dealt with by Allah.”
