Boko Haram Leader, Warns President Buhari not to return Borno


The leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has sent President Muhammadu Buhari a warning, telling him never to return to Borno.

Recall that President Buhari yesterday paid a sympathy visit to Borno, where about 30 lives were killed and 18 vehicles burnt by Boko Haram members.

Meanwhile, the leader of the sect conspicuously told Buhari that his members are fully on ground in the North-East.

He said they will attack Buhari if he visits Borno again. “Buhari came to Maiduguri pretending to be a good man. He shouldn’t try it again,” Shekau said in Hausa language.

Speaking further, he gave a condition for Chibok girls’ release, noting that the schoolgirls would be set free if the federal government let go of the sect members currently in detention.

Recall that on 15 April 2014, the sects abducted about 276 female students from Chibok Girls Secondary School.

Since then, Boko Haram has released few and had retained others including Leah Shaibu, a Christian amongst them.

However, the group launched another attack hours after Buhari paid a condolence visit to the state over the killing of 30 persons in Auno, a community near Maiduguri, on Sunday.
