Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau has been charged to come out of his hiding.
The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria, on Monday, described him as nothing but a coward.
The Council said at a press briefing in Kaduna conducted by its Secretary-General, Nafi’u Baba-Ahmed, “Shekau should be bold enough to face security forces if he is truly the courageous leader of Boko Haram he claims to be,”
The council also said that Shekau’s confession of the murder of Sheikh Jafar Adam exposed his complete ignorance of Islam and its laws.
“Shekau gleeful confession to the brutal murder of late Sheik Ja’afar Adam revealed his clear ignorance of the teachings of Islam which he claims to champion.”
It therefore, issued what it called an intellectual challenge to Shekau on his group’s “crooked religious ideology.”
The council lauded the efforts put in so far by the Federal Government to curb insecurity, but added that new strategies and ideas to should be used to tackle the menace head long.
The Shari’ah council also said that the present service chiefs should be held responsible and accountable over the resurgence of security threats including Boko Haram attacks, banditry and other security threats across the country.
It noted that the viral video allegedly released by Shekau was a challenge to all Nigerians who are desirous for peace to reign in the land, it also urged the Buhari led adminstration to put up more fight in order to crush the insurgents in line with his campaign promises.
“The release of the video itself is a sad indication of the evident failure of strategies and efforts of government in tackling Boko Haram insurgency in particular and the myriads of equally horrendous security threats bedevilling the country.”
