In apparent dismissal of the state of emergency declared by President Goodluck Jonathan on New Year’s Eve, Abul Qaqa a spokesman of the dreaded Islamist group Boko Haram has issued an ultimatum to Christians in the country's north and threatened to confront troops according to the latest report from Agence France-Presse (AFP).

Abul Qaqa said they are giving southerners living in the north a three-day ultimatum to leave.

"We find it pertinent to state that soldiers will only kill innocent Muslims in the local government areas where the state of emergency was declared," he told journalists in Hausa language in a phone conference late Sunday.
"We would confront them squarely to protect our brothers.". Qaqa said "we also wish to call on our fellow Muslims to come back to the north because we have evidence that they would be attacked.

"We are also giving a three-day ultimatum to the southerners living in the northern part of Nigeria to move away."

"The President had never visited any of the theatres were Muslims were massacred," Abul Qaqa said in condemnation of President Jonathan’s condolence visit to the St. Theresa's Catholic church in Madala, Niger State where dozens of Christians were killed in the Christmas Day Bomb attacks by Boko Haram.
