Boko Haram Leader, Shekau Gives Reason Why Schoolboys Were Abducted




The leader of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents, Abubakar Shekau has claimed responsibility for the abduction of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

Shekau, in an audio message first published by HumAngle stated that the action was carried out to ‘promote islam and discourage un-islamic practices’.


 
“What happened in Katsina was done to promote Islam and discourage un-Islamic practices as Western education is not the type of education permitted by Allah and his Holy Prophet,” he said.

“They are also not teaching what Allah and his Holy Prophet commanded. They are rather destroying Islam. It may be subtle, but Allah the Lord of the skies and earths knows whatever is hidden. May Allah promote Islam. May we die as Muslims.”

“In a nutshell, we are behind what happened in Katsina,” he said.

There have been conflicting figures in respect of the actual number of students taken away but the State governor, Aminu Bello Masari had confirmed that his government was negotiating with the abductors of the missing students.


 
President Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, had disagreed with Governor Masari over the number of boys abducted from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.

He said the number of the schoolboys still in captivity based on the testimony of one of the boys who escaped are ten, not 333 as earlier reported by the governor. 

Masari, on Sunday, while briefing a Federal Government delegation led by Minister of Defence, Maj Gen Bashir Magashi (retd.), had said, “The children so far kidnapped cut across the state because of the boarding school houses all children from all parts of the state and some even from outside the state.


 
“It has a population of 839, and so far, we are yet to account for 333 students. We are still counting because more are coming out from the forest and we are calling those parents that have phone numbers to find out whether or not their children have gone back home.”
