The radical Islamic sect releases a video warning of more attacks on the media

Media outlet ThisDay was bombed by the sect in Abuja and Kaduna last week

Radical Islamic sect, Boko Haram, in a video released on Tuesday, threatened to attack more media organisations in the country.

The sect gave the names of the targets as: Voice of America (Hausa), Radio France (Hausa), Daily Trust Newspaper, Guardian Newspapers, among others. The group also gave reasons why they bombed ThisDay Newspaper office in Abuja and other media houses last Thursday.

“This is a message from jamaatu ahlis sunnah lil daawati wal jihad, and we wish to inform Nigerians our reasons for attacking some media houses,” the group said.

Boko Haram accused the targeted media houses of “unfair” coverage of its activities, alleging that sections of the media seem to be siding with the government. The video, posted on Youtube under the name ‘Alhaji Mani’, also showed live clips of the ThisDay bombing.
