The extremist Boko Haram sect,
has denied media reports alleging
that four of its members were
arrested Friday, in Kano,
attempting to bomb a Jumaat
mosque at Fagge area of the metropolis. The group, in an statement sent
to media houses Saturday, also
accused the State Security
Service, SSS, of orchestrating
the plot in order to discredit it,
describing such a practice as normal among security services in
many countries. “We are aware these types of
ugly trend exists among security
services such as the SSS, in
order to discredit ‘Gods warriors’
but we are confident they will
never succeed by God’s grace because our aim is to ensure the
existence of a strong Islamic
practice,” the sect said. The group also paid tribute to
Habibu Bama, one of its members
who died of gunshot wounds he
sustained while being captured by
the JTF in Damaturu, Yobe State,
on Thursday. “We are gladdened by the
martyrdom of our brother Habibu
Bama. We pray God accept his
sacrifice, that is the best ending
to any true believer,” the
statement said. The group also reiterated its
earlier warning to media houses
it accused of unbalanced
reporting. “As much as possible we do not
wish to engage the media in any
hot exchanges, the condition we
gave was that any media house
that knows that it cannot relay
messages we circulated the way it is or even refuse to do so
completely, then it should also
not report the government side
even if it is President Goodluck
Jonathan that spoke, otherwise
it will have itself to blame,” it said.
