Boko Haram terrorist group on Tuesday claimed responsibility for the abduction of the over 333 Katsina schoolboys.
But the insurgent group said it had yet to go into negotiations with the government contrary to claims by the authorities.
Boko Haram’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, stated this in a recording released on Tuesday morning and obtained by HumAngle.
As Shekau said concerning the abduction of the over 200 Chibok schoolgirls in 2014, the terrorist group’s leader in his latest recording said the Katsina schoolboys were kidnapped in order to discourage people from obtaining western education.
He said, “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 earth knows whatever is hidden. May Allah promote Islam. May we die as Muslims. In a nutshell, we are behind what happened in Katsina.”
