The Islamic group, Jama’atul Izalatul Bid’ah Wa Ikamatus Sunnah, JIBWIS, on Saturday charged President Goodluck Jonathan to identify and punish the members and sponsors of the dreaded Boko Haram sect whom he recently alleged are in government, police and the National Assembly.
Speaking during the closing of the group’s annual national preaching held at the IBB Square Bauchi, the National Chairman of the Group, Sheikh Sani Yahya Jingir said: “Since the President says that he knows Boko Haram, why won’t he expose them?”
Jingir also added that the approach of the government in addressing the current insecurity plaguing the country especially in the north is not satisfactory, advised that the government should meet with all the relevant stakeholders in the region with a view to discussing how to surmount the menace.
In a recent attack by the Boko Haram sect in Kano, nearly 200 persons were killed. The death toll keep increasing by the day.
Boko Haram, had in a letter to the Kano State Governor, Dr. Rabi’u Kwankwaso, in August warned that it would attack the city if the State Security Service continued hunting its members.
The dreaded group warned in the letter that it would deploy its men in the state and make it worse than Maiduguri if its members held in custody were not released.
The group also stated in the letter that it sent a similar warning letter to the late President Umar Yar’adua, security chiefs and the people of Borno State, but it was taken as a joke.
At least 11 people were also on Sunday killed in Bauchi after multiple bomb explosions went off. Four houses were reportedly razed in the attack which started around 4am.
