Leader of the Boko Haram terrorist group, Abubakar Shekau has claimed responsibility for the bomb blasts that occurred at the University of Maiduguri, Borno state, on Monday.
In a audio recording published on YouTube, Shekau said;
“The bomb that happened this morning, it’s my people. Don’t deceive people that it’s a mosque, how would you build a mosque and do ungodly things in it,” Shekau said in the recording.
“We are not angry with Nigeria. You didn’t kill anyone in Sambisa. We are praying that we don’t change; Koran is our teacher; this is the message we are sending to you. Are you [Buhari] as powerful as God?
“You should know it’s Shekau talking and I’m alive and it’s we that did it, even if King Pharaoh repents, we will not accept it.”
