He also stated that contrary to claims made in some quarters, it is yet to make any demands.
In his words;
“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,”
Meanwhile, a top commander of the group also dismissed claims it has made any demands.
“The only time we spoke with the parents was to warn them to tell the military to desist from making any attempts to forcefully rescue the boys,” He said.
