Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Nigeria's Boko Haram Islamist militants, dressed in a black turban and a white gown and bullet-proof vest - holding an AK 47 rifle. In his 40-minute audio message, Shekau reportedly  blamed the deaths of "innocent civilians" on Nigeria's security forces but threatened to carry out a bombing campaign against Nigeria's secondary schools and universities - unless security forces stopped what he claimed was a series of recent attacks on Islamic schools or madrassas in the northern town of Maiduguri.AFP PHOTO / YOUTUBE
