The elusive leader of the notorious Islamic terror group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has taken full claim for the bomb blasts that happened at the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), Borno state, in the early hours of Monday.
In an audio recording published on YouTube, the shadowy kingpin of the ferocious death cult stated that the mosque was attacked because it was “ungodly”, The Cable reports.
Shekau further iterated that the Nigerian army lied about killing any of his members in the Sambisa forest.
“The bomb that happened this morning, it’s my people. Don’t deceive people that it’s a mosque, how would you build a mosque and do ungodly things in it,” Shekau said in the recording.
“We are not angry with Nigeria. You didn’t kill anyone in Sambisa. We are praying that we don’t change; Koran is our teacher; this is the message we are sending to you. Are you [Buhari] as powerful as God?
“You should know it’s Shekau talking and I’m alive and it’s we that did it, even if King Pharaoh repents, we will not accept it.”
It would be recalled, yesterday, a male suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the Senior Staff Quarters of the University of Maiduguri, killing five persons including a professor.
The professor who was killed was identified as Prof. Aliyu Usman Mani, the Director of Veterinary of the University, according to Alhaji Satomi Ahmed, the Chairman of State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).
