According to reports reaching oyogist.com the Boko Haram Terrorist group has said in a short audio that it was responsible for the Kidnap of over 300 students from the Government Science Secondary School in Katsina State.
While sharing the audio, the leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, said the reason they carried out this attack was to promote the Islamic religion in the region.
Shekau was quoted as saying;
“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.
“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,” HumAngle quotes him as saying.
