You Are A Coward – Nigerian Sharia Council Challenges Boko Haram Leader To Show His Face

At a press briefing by the body, the Secretary-general, Nafi’u Baba-Ahmed in his words said – “Shekau should really be bold enough to come out of hiding and face Nigerian army if he is truly the real and fearless leader of Boko Haram,”


“Shekau’s irresponsible confession and the owning up of the brutal murder of one of our own, the late Sheik Ja’afar Adam clearly shows his undiluted and crass ignorance of the tenets and teachings of Islam which he falsely claims to support.”

They also called on the federal government to look further into the menace caused by the group and bring an end to it

Recall the head of the terrorist group, Boko haram – Abubarkar Shakau had earlier made public a video where he openly castigated the president – Buhari and also made mention of still being responsible for some of the abducted chibok girls.

The Boko haram leader had also accused the minister of communications of trying to block his communication lines and issued a kill threat.

It is unknown if the Boko haram sect will reply or accept this challenge as his whereabouts and location has for decades, been a closely guided secret even to the Nigerian army. But as the case may be, there should be a need to clarify if indeed, Boko haram is championing the religion of Islam or something else as the Nigerian sharia body has stated above.
