The Islamic extremist group Boko Haram has released a video showing the execution of two Christian aid workers and the group also vows to kill every Christian they capture in the future.

According to Morning Star News, the video was posted on Sept. 22 on the group’s Amaq news agency website. It shows two young men, Lawrence Duna Dacighir and Godfrey Ali Shikagham, both members of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) on their knees while three heavily armed men stand behind them. Both men are then shot. 

Speaking in the Hausa language in the video, one terrorist then says they have vowed to kill every Christian they capture in revenge for Muslims killed in past religious conflicts in Nigeria.

Previous large-scale clashes between Muslims and Christians occurred in Jos in 2001 and 2008.
