The past DIG who retired recently was gunned down along with his driver and a police orderly on his way from his farm on Tuesday.
The sect stated in a statement written in Hausa today in Maiduguri it was happy killing the top retired cop, and bragged that very soon all top government officials will be targeted the same way as they will have no hiding place.
The statement also claimed that contrary to the Joint Task Force (JTF) recent declaration that it has killed 16 of their members, only one was killed.
The sect claimed to have killed about 50 soldiers in a recent encounter in Maiduguri.
“And only one of our brothers was martyred. As a result, it was only this morning that they (JTF) came to pick up the dead bodies of their colleagues and as usual started torching the houses of innocent people out of vengeance. We urge the people of Maiduguri city and other towns to exercise patience because very soon, God willing, we will flush out these forces of unbelief and establish the Islamic Sharia system where justice will reign.”, the statement concluded.
Calls made to the JTF spokesperson Lt.Col. Sagir Musa to react to the statement were not returned.
