You Only Have 3 Days Left: Boko-Harram to Nigerian Christians Living in Northern Nigeria

Islamic militants in Nigeria gave Christians three days to leave the north following President Goodluck Jonathan's declaration of a state of emergency in four northern states. Boko Haram, a Taliban-inspired group that has carried out a series of raids and bombings in the north and the capital, Abuja, also said Muslims should leave the south of Africa's top oil producer. The group urged “our fellow Muslims to come back to the north because we have evidence that they would be attacked,” Abu Qaqa, a spokesman for the group, said today in an e-mailed statement. “We are also giving three days ultimatum to the southerners living in northern Nigeria to move away.” (Bloomberg News)
