JUST IN: Abubakar Shekau releases New Audio, Threatens Sheikh Gumi


A factional leader of the Boko Haram insurgents, Abubakar Shekau, has released a new video, threatening the Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmed-Gumi, over his plans to take preaching to the enclaves of criminals in the bushes.

Recall that the cleric during an interview with the BBC Hausa service had declared his intention to enter into the bushes to preach to the Fulani herders.
According to him, the herders are now being used by the Boko Haram insurgents to perpetuate their terror through killings and kidnapping for ransom.

The cleric stated that these criminal herders needed religious teachings in order to stop their criminality.

But releasing audio on Tuesday, Mr Shekau warned the cleric against accusing the sect of using the herders for killings and kidnapping for ransom.

Rendering the audio in Hausa language, Mr Shekau stressed that his sect never engaged anyone in either Kaduna-Abuja highway, Niger State, or any other place to kidnap for ransom.
