Days after the abduction of students of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State, the Boko Haram group has claimed responsibility for the attack
According to Daily Trust, the factional leader of the insurgents, Abubakar Shekau in a video message first published by HumAngle outlines two reasons why the abductions were carried out.
The report stated that the wanted insurgent claimed the raid on the school was done to promote Islam and discourage un-Islamic practices.
“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.
Shekau was reported to have criticized the teaching of the school, saying they are 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.
