“Why We Did Not Kill Obasanjo” – Boko Haram Leader

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo

Information recently made available to 247ureports.com through a high ranking contact within the organizational structure of the terrorist Islamic group, Boko Haram reveals unnerving revelations regarding the recent attacks on Kano, Bauchi State – and the aborted attack of September 15, 2011 visit by former President of the federal republic of Nigeria, General Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo to the home of the in-law of the slain leader of the Boko Haram, Babakura Fuggu in Borno State.

It was gathered that the leader of Boko Haram, Imam Abubakar Shekau who is currently hiding away in Qoundere, Cameroun following the recent and ongoing attacks on Kano and Bauchi State – had deliberated seriously on the assassination of the former president of Nigeria, General Obasanjo on September 15, 2011 while on a visit to Borno State to the home of the in-law to the slain leader of Boko Haram [Ustaz Mohammed Yusuf].

According to the Boko Haram source, former President Obasanjo had made first contact with Yusuf’s in-lawal, Babakura Fuggu [eldest son of Yusuf’s in-law] in early September 2012 concerning opening a channel of dialogue with the terrorist group. The leadership of the group took it uneasy with the choice of Babakura – [since the line of leadership did not automatically follow  family lineage as in traditional settings. As a ‘religious’ group they did not see Babakura as the rightful person to take over from Yusuf.] – For this reason, the leadership of the group ‘silently’ objected to the meeting between Babakura and Obasanjo.

As Obasanjo concluded his secret meeting the previous day at the Green House with three other religious group [Jamatu Nasir Islam, JNI and CAN] in Jos, the capital of Plateau State on the Wednesday of September 14, 2011, and took off the following day to Borno State, the terrorist group, according to the source, marked the former President within their ‘firing range’ from the moment he landed in Borno State at minutes after 11am till he departed the State in the late afternoon of the same day. According to the source, “we were not sure of him”.

“He was going to be a big catch” said the source who explained that the leadership halted the operation as Obasanjo went inside the residence of Babakura.

“Obasanjo was good to us. We had no problem with Obasanjo. We had him. We could have taken him out”, as he recalled that the sharia movement took off during the period when Obasanjo was president. “The problem started during the late President Yar’Adua regime. Goodluck only inherited the problem. We have no problem with Goodluck. But his Ijaw people around him are deceiving him”.

Interestingly, the Boko Haram source who spoke in fluent English with a slight American accent explained the decision to ‘finish’ Babakura Fuggu came due to what transpired between Obasanjo and Babakura. “We learnt he asked for money”. Babakura requested on behalf of Boko Haram monies to enable the group defray litigation costs and other minor financial requests which the leadership of Boko Haram considered menial and demeaning. The wife, Yakolo, was said to have received money from the former president to the tuned of N500,000. Babakura Fuggu was gundown on September 17, 2012 as he existed his home by his younger brother in the company of other young men dressed in reddish-orange babarigas each armed with AK47s – just barely forty eight [48] hours following the visit of former President Obasanjo.

Meanwhile, information available to 247ureports.com reveals the reason Kano and Bauchi State were attacked a few days ago as having to do with failed promises by the State governors of the two states. The entire northern governors, according to the Boko Haram source, have ongoing relationships with the group. “Most of them pay us monthly to leave their states alone”.

In Kano State, the former state governor, Malam Shekarau reached an agreement with the terrorist group in late 2004 for an initial monthly disbursement of N5million which was later bumped up to N10million in 2009. The agreement, according to the source, included provision of institutional infrastructural support through the Hisbah [Islam police] project which received yearly budgetary allocation of N1.01billion. The gubernatorial election of April 2011 which introduced Rabiu Kwankwaso as the new governor changed the agreement. The Kwankwaso administration was quick to dismantle the Hisbah set up – and the said agreement to disburse N10million monthly. The governor proceeded to make arrests of known Boko Haram members. Boko Haram leadership who had found comfort in Kano did not appreciate the Kwankwaso administration’s policy on Boko Haram. According to the source, “we warned the Governor of the consequences”.

“We concluded on Kano in December 2011”. The abrupt end to the oil subsidy strike and protests served an opportunity for the group to strike. The preparatory work for the attack and the selection of targets had already been completed. According to the source, an estimated number of casualties was calculated to net 300 minimum. “The go ahead order” was given on Wednesday [January 18, 2012] evening before the leader of the group left the country to Cameroon on the early morning of Thursday, the following day.

In Bauchi State, the Governor, Malam Yuguda reached similar agreement with the leadership of the group. A monthly disbursement of N10million was agreed upon along with provision of training grounds on the many mountain scattered in Bauchi State. The governor also promised to give them security against arrests by the federal government.  The agreement was reached in June 2008 but mid 2011, the governor stopped the disbursement of the N1omillion regularly. Boko Haram were not happy but remained loyal to the agreement because of the unfettered access to the mountains of Bauchi as training camps.

However the arrest and detention of their number 3 man by the State Security Services [SSS] fractured the relationship between the governor and the terrorist group. According to the source, the State was attacked to free the number 3 leader of Boko Haram and to “teach them a lesson”. The detained leader schooled at the prestigious Lincoln University located in the State of Connecticut, USA and owns a block industry in Bauchi State near the home of the former governor of Bauchi State – an area densely populated by Boko Haram operatives.

According to the source, “the northern governors are overwhelmed”. They are aware of the capabilities of the Boko Haram operatives operating in their respective states. Some of the State government officials visit the terrorist groups in their training camps to watch the training exercises. “We train harder than the Nigerian military and they see it” said the source while ‘lamenting’ that the governor continue to tell the President that the menace of Boko Haram is under control.

The Boko Haram source made it emphatic that “we [they] have the weapons and are in control. We are not asking for Islamic Nigeria. We want our men free”.

    just want to use this opportunity to inform NON-muslims that the actions of bokoharam is against islamic teachings. recently. it was discovered that som members are non nigerians. in kano. two chadians and one nigeren were arrested. in bauchi and kano christains were also found guilty of such offences.so let us be realistic and pray for peace. we all need one another. long life NIGERIA!

    Thx everybody for your good and bias comments. First I must ignite the senses of all good people of the north. Why are they so quiet to tell the truth. Their leaders have continually allowed it’s citizens to wallow in poverty. For all the years power has been in the north, there’s has am been totally nothing to show for it, yet northern Governors pay boko haram 10million. Ain’t you Governors ashamed? Let’s forget about tribe here, whoever the country feels can see to the affairs of this country with the interest of the masses at heart should go ahead and rule. Let’s forget about this tribal bullshit and make 9ja move forward.

  5. Dan jigawa February 3, 2012 at 11:22 pm -

    As a northener who for long been observing the incidence, i came to realise that sequel to the reactions of Nigerians after 2011 general election, western countries predicted the colapse of Nigeria by 2015, dont you think these countries can sponsor something like bokoharam to justify such a prediction? Recently, a terrible gun shipment from uk into Nigeria has been discovered. Also remember their commitments and the resulting responses to the census result of 2006, they said ‘Nigeria has tremendous number of youth because there wasn’t civil war for long’. of course they were jealous, Nigeria reprerents the most plural society today, shame to you enemies of progress, we want Nigeria to remain one!

  6. Jigawa February 3, 2012 at 10:47 pm -

    Though bokoharam is mainly estabilished by muslims, their actions are Unislamic. Some actions of xtains are against the teachings of xtainity also. Islam dozn support terrorism. If we consider everything as whole, more muslims have been killed than xtains from the very beginning of the bokoharam calamity to this moment. I think dialogue approach will be better than the use of firepower towards solving this problem.

    I think those foolish northen governors, as many as they are sponsoring boko haram, should open up to mr president in conjuction with nigerian securities to get hold of those inhuman beings-boko haram, or else, I see Nigeria divided religiously. Infact, may God save Nigeria.

    What is the meaning of life to you/ Can you create one/ Killing is just like you are enjoying yourself. I belief no one can take the life he/she has not given if God did not endorse it. Know this fact. And mind you no one can fight for God. He himself is a man of war. The Fisrt and last Conqueror. no one like Him. erase that from your mind. its non….se.

    I don’t believe this story. It appears to me as the report was crafted to achieve an ulterior motive. Nigerians are educated and well informed people.We are not as credulous as the writers of this story thought we are.

  21. AMG January 25, 2012 at 8:37 am -

    Well many Nigerians have talked, among there are the good, the bad and the agly ones. We should please think very well about the happenings of these days. People are talking about 2 or 3 things, Religion, ethnicity and region. Nigerians have been existing peacefully, despite their differences. Why are things trying to take another directions nowadays? We should all think about happenings in other parts of this world. Even today, in Nigeria, Christians and Muslims, Northeners and Southeners, save one another in area dominated by the other during uprisings. We are still our brothers keepers. We have recently seen thigs like that during the last fuel subsidy removal strike. Are we not really having enemies inside or outside our Nation that are trying to see our downfall for their own selfishness? Let us please think well and put peace and unity of our country in our heart and have tolerance irrespective of our location, religion and other groups.

    If you check very weLl mustapha adi who has spoken very well at the begining of this thread is from adamawa or taraba. Rather than kano,brono,bauchi, islam that I know is a very wonderful religion,but it seems all these rligious fanatics from kano especially and places like brono,sokoto and all those core northern states are diluting islam with culture.I think that is where the problem is.immagine at a newspaper stand where we were discussing this monster called boko haram,something lead to the other and one kano muslim guy was calling another muslim guy who happen to come from adamawa “BANZA BOKWES”.

    @Olisa, I only wish everyone would be allowed to carry AK-47. That way, everyone would be able to defend him or herself. That’s why it’s safer in the US despite what you see on TV. Where in Nigeria can you wake up at 1:00AM and want to drive an 8 hour distance alone without the fear of armed robbers, kidnappers, and now, Boko Haram? Well, this is very easy in the US because an armed robber would be too scared to stop you because they don’t know if if you’re carrying an AK-47 with you.

  27. WisemanX January 24, 2012 at 8:41 pm -

    This story is as true as “Tales by moonlight”. Absolute tripe, written by some amateur writer looking for attention. Nigerians will believe anything, so long as its in print. Anyone could say Boko Haram got in touch with them, where is the proof? The article even lacks an author. Please give me a break and ignore this rubbish. Is Boko Haram now confessing or what? This article is simply fake.

  28. john January 24, 2012 at 6:26 pm -

    With this revealing information, Nigeria is healing- God is answering our prayers.

  29. Solomon Kazaure January 24, 2012 at 6:13 pm -

    This is really a gossip meant to divide Nigeria. It is clearly one of the rumors going around to destroy the peaceful co-existance among Nigerians. One good thing is that “God Loves Nigeria” therefore whatever you are after HE will surely deal with you.

    The conspiracy theory in the North states that “All these killing are sponsored by southerners especially the south-south; one to disorganise the North and ultimately creating an avenue for division of Nigeria because they have OIL and others dont have. Therefore religion is their only means to divide the country. So beware, stop relating whatever is happening with shari’a or Islam at large.

    While the Bible said “thou shall not kill”
    Islam states categorically even the extend of damage of killing an innocent person. Its stated in the traditions of Muhammad that whomever kill an innocent person, its as though he killed the entire humanity, and hell fire awaits him in the day of resurrection.

    And if its confirmed (by the court of law)that one person has killed an innocent person, then that person should also face the wrath of law.

    You can see that Islam is very strict. So please do not relate what Boko Haram are doing with Islam. Muslims today believe that Boko Haram member are carefully trained to destroy Islam – supported heavily by the southerners.

    • Micheal January 25, 2012 at 3:38 pm -

      You are a liar, Boko Haram is following every single word of the satan you call your god. they only targeted the govt. sect because they wanted their members to be released. boko haram was not founded in 2002 , this satanic dead cult was invented by this satan worshipper false prophet .mohammad 1400 years ago, islam IS boko haram .google prophet of doom .for all your islamic lessons ;

  32. Amos T January 24, 2012 at 4:50 pm -

    Truly, the northern governors and the sultan know more about this boko haram than they are letting out. Truly, this is a problem of unchecked corruption and a failed state. For years, some Islamic preachers have been preaching hate and intolerance and this has gone unchecked. Nigeria could have gone much further than it is today but for the violent predisposition of most Hausa Fulani Muslim and their supremacist attitude about their religion which they have completely deviated from. The feudalism in the north is breeding poverty, intolerance and hatred like nowhere else in the World.

    This piece is poorly written. According to the writer some of the events happened in “September 2012,” funny enough, we are still in January 2012. While I don’t know the truthfulness of these stories, I think that good journalism requires thorough editorial work. Always check to ensure that there are no mistakes that could reduce the quality of your work.

The Govt knows their sponsors n the demons perpetrating these acts. Demonic Boko Harams, stop playing God and repent while you still have the time. Be warned!

  39. Paul Igbide January 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm -

    The Governors in the Northern part of Nigeria are running away from the truth and it is the right time for them to be bold enough to tell us who is actually funding Boko Haram activities in their domain. If not, why should Isa Yuguda of Bauchi state and a host of others apologise to them for fear of being attacked? No matter their antics, President Goodluck Jonathan is elected to serve us for a better Nigeria and not a sectional leader and as such, he should be given the necessary peace to move Nigeria and not only Ijaw nation to the next level. Like Mustapha Adi rightly put it, the problem with Boko Haram is not President Jonathan since he inherited these problems but the complete neglet of the youths in the North by the so called elites who today are also sponsoring them to create more havoc because they feel they have lost out power to those they considered inferior as far as governance is concerned. My only advice to them is to sheath their sword and cooperate with President Goodluck Jonathan to help us fix the deplorable state of power ( NEPA ), roads, education, health and other social vices that have been our bane in the last 40years of military incursion into our polity. If the elites and rulers are not shameful, how many years did it take Abubakar Tafawa Balawa, Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe to build the groundnut pyramids in the North,Cocoa in the West and Coal in the East? Just 6 years or so. All these and so many other natural resources that modern sciences have discovered have been neglected just because of the black gold called oil which have succeeded in destroying our aquatic life and also turning our ladies in the Niger Delta and indeed Nigerians into prostitution. Nigerians, please wake up and face reality. If it is true that we are mistakingly amalgamated in 1914, let it be. The Hausas are blacks and the next door neighbours to the Yorubas, Idomas, Igalas, Igbiras,Etsakos. Likewise the Isokos, Ijaws, Itsekiris, Kalabaris, Calabars, Ibibios,Ibos and all other minor and major tribes are close to each other. Anyhow we look at the past mistakes, let it be and lets forge ahead. If Nigeria is divided today, how will it look like? Are you saying that we should abandon our brothers in the north because the tide is on oil today? What of if it change tomorrow? So, be your brothers’ keeper and lets all join hands and attack our common enemy called corruption so that our infrastructures can be fixed. We should also focus our attention on the high level of corruption the National Assembly and the State Governors plus the local government. What are they doing with the monies being paid into their coffers? Nigerians, please ask questions. Happy days ahead. Paul Igbide.

    Let’s set aside sentiments and trully face the problem bedevelling our country. If this strory is anything to go by then we at the north have as leaders the most unpatriotic people; if on the other hand is a malicious propaganda hurled on these people to turnish the image of the north, then those sponsoring it are the most unpatriotic of all. But let us not rush into conclusions over reports whose authenticity can be question pending true investigation.

      For a lady to be stripped naked by a woman for attimpteng to steal a black berry is bad enough. Does the woman in the picture not have a daughter? How would she feel if her daughter was stripped naked for whatever reason? It’s only petty thieves that the old security fool will be flexing muscles for, if armed robbers were to come to the shop he will be the first to take off. It’s too bad!

    “Through a high ranking contact within the Organizational structure of the terrorist Islamic group”

    I can not understand the differences between these so called Governors that know Boko Haram are operating inside their states and the Reporter who has a high ranking contact within a faceless organization, This Reporter or his organization should exposed the so call high ranking source and save the life of other Nigerians who may one day fall victim of his satanic act. otherwise they are as guilty as the so called evil Governors.

    The President should declare a state of emergency in response the obvious declaration of war on Nigeria by Bokoharam and their sponsors, He should within the emergency period, deploy INEC to conduct a referendum (to be observed by UN, AU, ECOWAS, EU, and other civic International observers). The referendum should pose two simple options for a YES vote by all registered voters, viz – (1) SECULAR REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, (2) ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA (SHARIA). The distribution of votes should, thereafter be analyzed and those areas that vote 66% in favour of each option should be ceded according to their popular wishes. For areas that do not meet the 66% criterion, they should be subjected to a second round vote as to whether to join any of the emerging Republics or COLLECTIVIZED into the third emerging republic of NEITHER SECULAR NOR ISLAMIC, using a simple majority as the DECIDING CRITERION. If this is done, Bokoharam will naturally metamorphose into the armies of their chosen country and the incentive to cause further violence would naturally abate, leaving every one with a WIN-WIN-WIN situation.

    In 628 AD, a delegation from St.
    Catherine’s Monastery came to Prophet
    Muhammed (SAW) and requested his
    protection. He responded by granting
    … them a charter of rights, declaring: “This
    is a message from Muhammad ibn
    Abdullahi, as a covenant to those who
    adopt Christianity, near and far, we are
    with them.
    Verily I, the servants, the helpers, and
    my followers defend them, because
    Christians are my citizens; and by Allah! I
    hold out against anything that
    displeases them.
    No compulsion is to be on them. Neither
    are their judges to be removed from
    their jobs nor their monks from their
    monasteries. No one is to destroy a
    house of their religion, to damage it, or
    to carry anything from it to the Muslims’
    Should anyone take any of these, he
    would spoil God’s covenant and disobey
    His Prophet.
    Verily, they are my allies and have my
    secure charter against all that they hate.
    No one is to force them to travel or to
    oblige them to fight. The Muslims are to
    fight for them. If a female Christian is
    married to a Muslim, it is not to take
    place without her approval. She is not to
    be prevented from visiting her church to
    pray. Their churches are to be respected.
    They are neither to be prevented from
    repairing them nor the sacredness of
    their covenants.
    No one of the nation (Muslims) is to
    disobey the covenant till the Last Day
    (end of the world).”

      There is definitely smiethong to hide as you so clearly note. This Boko Haram problem is one that has been around for years. Now, all of a sudden they kill everyone involved with little time for an investigation so as to understand who, what, when ,where, and how to prevent similar future occurrences? Definitely smiethong fishy going on. I wonder who is being protected? Is it just armed officials who apparently shot first without distinguishing between innocents and radical Islamists? Is it just the federal government and particularly Yar’Adua who allegedly knew of Boko Haram but did little to prevent their actions? Is it the rich patron(s) in our outside Nigeria who feels it is his/her duty to support militancy with their money and thus fund such sects? The answers are countless, on my part.Thanks so much for visiting! Don’t be a stranger.@ Beauty: my goodness…thanks for the link. Was looking for a Hausa speaker last night on Twitter but Nigerians were asleep. Will have to read the transcript closely.It is clear, at least to me, that there are those that are very content to hold the north back in terms of economic development. By ensuring that the region is a hot spot for religious fighting, investment is guaranteed to stay away. What a shame that we the people do not see this for what it is – an effort at control. Thanks for swinging by.

    My advice to Nigerians and our president is to put our ego to sleep and negotiate with this deadly group.
    We should engage them in round table for dialogue.
    Our president keeps on assuring us that there is no cause for alarm and day in day out, they are blast our brothers and sisters all over the country.
    I was ones against granting boko harams members armnesty with the parochial excuse that “”””””””””which money dem go take pay them?””””””
    But live is important than my oil wealth.
    I want us and GEJ to make peace with them.
    GEJ can say today that he will bring them to book, but tomorrow! Nigerians are blasted again. We need peace. Please boko haram should forgive us Nigerians of our tresspasses and put a stop to the bombings.
    Who knows the next target? Not even GEJ.

      It’s only in Nigeria that you kill people and you are granted amnesty. Amnesty for what? killing innocent Nigerians that are armless? killing people in the place that we all regard as sacred?

  107. Odumale January 23, 2012 at 10:59 am -

    I totally agree with the above and concur that Kano State government may be trying to politicise the issue and it will only compound matters. Below is how Boko Haram issues its statements, unlike here where a faceless member is trying to implicate some northern governors:









    Glory be to Allah and may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon the seal prophet (SAW).

    The present security situation in Maiduguri, the continuously attack of security agents, ward heads, politician and the subsequent bomb blast in some part of the country, including force headquarters suicide bomb attack, who is responsible and why?

    Every one may say it’s unfortunate, uncalled for or what have you. But TRUTH ARE SACRED AND WILL REMAIN TRUTH EVEN IF PEOPLE DON’T LIKE IT.

    You all saw on AL-JAZEERA TV how unarmed men, youths, women, cripple and even under age were asked to laid on the ground and were shut on the head and chest by security agents. You all saw our leader MALLAM MUHAMMAD YUSUF with handcuff and shot severally. You all saw how both MASJID AND THE HOLY QUR’AN were being destroyed.

    What are our crime? What damage have we caused or cost Nigeria government, which leads to our attack in Bauchi, Wudil, Gombe, Yobe and Maiduguri two years back? Is sticking to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and Hadith a crime? Is funeral right a crime?

    The reasons are clear: 1. The Nigerian Government is a KUFUR system serving BOTH UNITED NATION (UN) AND CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (CAN) 2. “We the Jama’atu Ahlisunnah Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad are MUSLIMS and are from the NORTHERN part of the country who spent eight years agitating for ISLAMIC STATE, STRAVING TO BRING BACK THE LOST GLORY OF UTHMAN DAN FODIO. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT? Is just to go back to the ways of our creator (ALLAH) where justice, discipline, good morals, love and care, peace and progress etc will prevails.

    Having got the clear picture of what happened, it have come our notice that the present Police Commissioner, Director State Security Service (DSSS) and Ward Heads have jointly started arresting our members IN YOUR STATE (KANO) known to you or not, a situation which we will not take lightly by the grace of ALLAH. We want to made it clear that the country called Nigeria belongs to Allah; same thing Kano and we are SERVANT OF ALLAH. Therefore our members should allow to stay where ever they wish. WE DID NOT TOUCH YOU, THEREFORE OUR MEMBERS (MUSLIMS) SHOULD NOT BE TOUCHED.

    These same security agents attitude made MAIDUGURI, which is known as home of peace before to what it is today because they know is not their home town. Therefore these their URGLYATTITUDE MOST be check and stop with immediate effect and all those arrested should be released immediately, other- wise,I SWEAR WITH ALMIGHTY ALLAH who created Heaven and Earth! Who Sent Prophet upon Prophets right from ADAM (AS) to MUHAMMAD (SAW)!! Who Sent down ATTAURAH, AL-INGIL, AZZABUR and the HOLY QUR’AN!!! We may be force to DEPLOY OUR MEN TO YOUR STATE KANO AND MAKE IT WORST THAN MAIDUGURI BY THE GRACE OF ALLAH.

    This is exactly same open letter we did to the then president, Late Umaru Musa Yar’adua, security chiefs and the people of Borno State two years back, which they thought was a joke. TO ALLAH WHO MADE ME WE ARE NOT JOKING.

    We appeal you read this LETTER without prejudice for you to really understand the message we are trying to pass across.

      If i may ask u this question,what on earth connects CAN and all d rubbish u’re talking about,wat did Christians do to Muslims dat at any slighttest chance they d muslims will start killing Christians and yet u’ve d got to talk of love and peace.who ever these demons that call themselves bokoharam are,they’re not fighting 4d gud but 4watever their selfish interest is,they are not fighting for muslims cus d muslims i know are peaceful and loving people.Bokoharam is political,the reason they give for slaughtering human beings as if they are animals can never be a reason,today they’ll say they re fighting western education,tomorrow they’ll be fighting security,another day another reason,all i know is wether they tink they’re in power or not the most high God is d one in power the day he’ll face bokoharam,they’ll be finished and humiliated.May almighty God revenge for the blood of all those killed by bokoharam,evil bokoharam u’ll never go unpunished,God is watching u

      Nura, Bashman and Odumale are birds of the same feather that will not want nigerians to know the truth. Three of u sent in ur responses within the same period..one after the other..is it a coincidence..this is how u guys confused GEJ..its obvious that the above is not a direct statement from Bharams but a summarised statement..it is only OBJ that can clarify if he indeed gave N500,000 to fuggu as a confirmation. What is clear was during the Presidential debate, Shekarau did confirmed he had a solution to reducing terrorist in kano by bringing them to the table and to allow for local police. Finally, there was one Tishau in an interview last year in PUNCH confirmed northern governors having Bharams militants. The following day the northern governors rushly told us that they have disbanded their militants… Truth can not hide..it is a question of time…

    one funny thing about this story is that alot of people are going to believe it.trust most nigerians,they like cheap stories that swings to their dispositions and belives where prejudice rules the day.nigerians shine your eyes.dont be taken for a ride.

    • Anu March 28, 2012 at 9:23 pm -

      Thanks for the plug to Grandiose Parlor. The Boko Horam uprising is not the yaipctl Islamist radical vs. Christian duel. The attack was focused more on the state, the police, and the way of life in the north that they found contradictory to the Sharia. They wanted to change the ‘system’. This is treason, the first of its kind in recent time. It worries me. It is worrisome that the security apparatus fell asleep and not proactive.It is worrisome that an alleged financier, a former commissioner in Borno state, was executed in the same manner Mohammed Yusuf was, by the police.What is also worrisome is the fact that indiscriminate police actions have made the Nigerian army look like ‘saints’ in their handling of the crisis. Boko Haram + Niger Delta + increasing armed robbery + stalled economy + clogged bureaucracy driven by bloated and impotent political structure, and you get a picture of an emerging failed state. Under this kind of situation, anything can happen. I hope I’m wrong and just over reacting. I hope at the end, the obvious calamity that has been starring Nigeria in the eye will make a miracle u-turn, and all will become well. I really hope so.

  109. Nura January 23, 2012 at 10:48 am -

    This is an issue that cannot be trivialise by bringing in politics so as to settle political scores with a percieved political enemy. This is not how Boko Haram made its statement. Check this please:http://saharareporters.com/news-page/boko-haram-why-we-struck-kano

  110. Faiza January 23, 2012 at 10:33 am -

    If dis is true, then they are not true muslims, becouse a good muslim donth kill his own brother for nothing., why cant they kill those that they made the agreement with. Osama only kill those that dont follow orders of islamic teachings. This are not boko haram, just story tells.

    • portyblack January 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm -

      so dat means osama’s killings are justified, u shld rephrase that misleading statement, u write good english so i’ll assume u r educated, no human being be it osama or whoever have the right to kill anyone. educated Notherners and muslims r nt killers. Follow God and stop following religious leaders (A general message nothn personal).

    • SYLVESTER SIMON January 23, 2012 at 2:55 pm -

      Sometimes, the things we say does not make sense at all. Who has the power to take other man’s life. God certainly did not give us this power.

      some idiot are brain wash that whoever dies fighting for allah, goes straight to heaven/paradise, what a joke. Is this how God thinks, and how many of youhave confirmed that any of the suicide bombers have ever gone any where if not straight to hell, a place where satan has prepared for them, and there they will be for eternity.

      • mohamed alibaba January 24, 2012 at 10:21 pm -

    • Regan January 23, 2012 at 11:53 pm -

      This is valdadash.you said they are killing christains why dint them kill obasanja,why dnt kill northern xtains.the ijaws are all behind this nonsense writings.we are using computer too.we knew how to write nonsense and post it for the whole world to see and read.if mr president will take this nonsense,then we begin to know wat he is fighting for,where are those xtains that where arrested in bauchi and some part of the country,becouse they were the people mostly arrested with bombs in bauchi,some of them in churches some of them in moaques,pls the xtains nd gej should answer this question.

  111. Olumide January 23, 2012 at 9:38 am -

  115. EXCEEDGATE January 23, 2012 at 8:19 am -

    it is rather unforunate. this story may not be totally true but the veracity could be graded 70+%. From the antecedent of the former governor of borno state, many of the northern governors and wicked northern elders know and have concrete relationship with these satanists who claimed to be fighting for the cause of allah.

    • Daddy Abu January 24, 2012 at 8:33 am -

  116. stephen bassey January 23, 2012 at 8:07 am -

    These is absolute madness on the part of the nothern governor,for entering such an agreement with terorist group,and in the first place what was the basis of forming this group,insteed of using the morning to equip the government police,i gues with this is enough for these governors who initiiated and found this group be brought to book and be delt with decisively by law.

    This story is fiction non of boko haram member write ths is ijaw people use to write ths kind of story in order to bring tension in nigerian soil to call for refrendum that’s main aim to see this country is divided and gudluck jornathan is their source of income is given them the money and weapon of explosion to destroy the north before they are calling for the division nigeria .

    • Eco January 23, 2012 at 12:59 pm -

      What actually are you talking. If an issue such as this is raised, what we ought to do is to ask the security aparatus to look into that and invistigat the information if the information or revealation is valid.

    • SYLVESTER SIMON January 23, 2012 at 2:43 pm -

    • Mustapha Adi January 23, 2012 at 4:55 pm -

      It is unfortunate that such unschooled, deceived and indoctrinated people like my brother Abubakar,whose pathetic and woeful English very much reflect the sorry state of the impoverished and backward North whose pathetic situation has been brought upon them by our elites using religion to hoodwink the people and use them as pawns in the Nigerian political power struggle while they stash away huge commonwealth of the Northern people in foreign accounts with their kids in expensive Brotish and American schools together with Boko Haram are todays product of the extent of degeneracy and hypocricy in the Islamic North. How will the actions of Boko Haram solve the armies Amajiris, the educational backwardness and poverty, disese and degradation of the North inspite of all the years Northerners have ruled Nigeria. These people only shame the noble religion of Islam….. Can our people wake up from the years of political, and economic indulgence that have the region so lethargic and learn from the modern day miracle of the power of vision in the Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and other progressive Gulf States like Qatar who are thanks be to Allah, destroying the negative prejudices and paradigms associated with Islam by the West.

      Abubakar you are a not a serious person. you as a northern and a muslim, should proffer solutions to the activities of the so called Boko Harem operatives in the northern part of the country. Nigeria today is not NIigeria of 1967. Be warned.

      May d soul of those innocent nigerians who lost their lifes rest in perfect peace.amen.
      Most nigerians r hypocrites thats the cause of all this problem,we jst use religion to cover our faces bt our minds r dirty n corrupt.
      This article is 100% true,those of u dat r insisting n says dats nt hw d sect. BOKO HARAM writes or speak r wrong bcos d article might have being editted.which tells u dat d article is true.
      And y i said most nigerians r hypocrites is that”wat hav we nt heard in this our 9ja,is it hw our cabals(presidents,govnrs,senators etc)mismanage our funds or is it hw they embezzle our money to their self alone”.forinstance hw will a man embezzle billiöns of naira when he/she jst hav a few days on earth to leave(atleast 80yrs old).dnts y we r backward compared to d so called superpower countries(USA,UK,CHINA etc.)9ja wuld hav bein among d 1st 10 states in d world in terms of fund n resources,power,food etc,9ja is nt suppose to b pøör with wat God has given us.if nt 4 our socalled corrupt leaders.
      I dnt need to narrate all d stories u knw them all,so dnt say its nt possible 4 9ja govnrs to hav done that,bt on other hand they did it dat peace might reign nt knwing dat they wher indirectly sponsoring.
      And my advice 4 our muslim brothers is to serve Allah n nt prophets bcos some prophet did sin against Allah/God.Muslims learn hw to read n study d Quran by urself,u shuld knw dat nobody shuld serve Allah 4 u bt u urself.and i had Quran has being translatd to other languages 4 people who cnt understand Arabic,so make use of dat.and above all sincerely pass accross to ur brothers(teach them).No body can fight 4 God/Allah,its all there in d Quran/Bible hw God/Allah destroy those that disobey HIM….
      So The Sect.Boko haram shuld nt claim they r 4 Allah or fighting 4 Allah.
      The voice of d people is the voice of God.Boko Haram will surely fail.wher is Mamman Gadafi,Sadam Hussain,Osama Binladin today,Gadafi was even hauntd n killed by his own brothers,its a shame to hav died in such a way.so watch 4 d down-Fall of Boko haram.thank u.

      You should get your head examined my dear boy..it is clear BH is a nuisance, dont sit here and try to justify what they have done by the mumbo jumbo you posted. An eye witness on TV channels even said it the day of the Kano bombings that they were dressed in Reddish brown attire…exactly the same attire that has been described in this article, if i was in doubt before..now am sure! So dont come here with your blah blah about Niger Delta trying to divide..Northern Muslims have been killing Christians from time immemorial

Bauchi is in the Northb. The Islamist fanatics were well.. just that ISLAMIST fanaticsc. The Islamist fanatics were demanding Sharia Law?Surprise surprise Mr. President, surprise surprise.

    If this story is anything to go by then the onus is on the president to find a lasting solution to this recurrent security issues.it is evident that some highly placed Nigerians are in the know of this people and their acts.if the president will allow Nigeria to disintegrate under him so be it bt I will caution that the resultant effects of that will be too enormous for all and sundry.

        Maduka, I agree with you. Boko Haram (and NOT Nigeria)is finished because whatever is an enemy to man does not live for long e.g. mosquito, lion, armed robbers, Boko Haram will NOT live long in Jesus Name! The end of Boko Haram has come in Jesus Name!
