The good news is the Islamic State is trying to change up the leadership of Nigerian-based Boko Haram and has appointed a new leader. The bad news is Haram’s replacement is vowing to bomb churches and kill all Christians. A recent report indicatest that IS (also known as ISIS or ISIL) announced Wednesday in its al-Nabaa newspaper that Abu Musab al-Barnawi is the new leader of its Nigerian-affiliated outfit, calling him the “Wali” (governor) of its West African Province.
Excerpt From The Christian Post:
In an interview published by the IS news source that was translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, al-Barnawi vowed to kill less Muslims and more Christians. Under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram has been known to kill not only Christians but also Muslims who oppose the terrorist group.
