Contrary to what the security forces said in Nigeria, Boko Haram has Monday announced that the 20 people killed in Maiduguri were not members of the extremist sect, but they were civilians.
Qaqa, who spoke in Hausa, said, “The JTF only brutally killed innocent poor people. There is no way our sect members up to 20 will gather in such environment and hold a council sitting. It is a lie and blatant lie. We are committed and have vowed until a Muslim State is formed in Nigeria and not going back on this.”
