Discussing Boko Haram terrorists, the spokesperson of the Nigerian military, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said the arrested members don’t know how to read the holy Quran and don’t practice the religion that they claim committing atrocities in its name.
“Most of the Boko Haram terrorists captured by Nigerian Military cannot read the Holy Quran, some of them cannot even recite the first chapter- Suratuh Al-Fathiha, yet they claimed they want to establish an ‘Islamic State’,” Colonel Sani wrote on Facebook, World Bulletin reported.
Considering the acts of the extremist group as “ironically shameful”, the senior military official revealed that “when the Nigerian Military captured their bases and training camps, they never found Quran, Hadith or other Islamic literature.”
“What they found were ammunitions, … and all sort of drugs including sex enhancing drugs in their enclaves at Sambisa Forest, Borno, North Eastern Nigeria,” officer Usman said.
Usman’s Facebook post was shared hundreds of times by his followers who asserted that the armed group tarnishes the image of Islam.
