The representative of His eminence Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H) in Jos declared that, they can not be deceived with Boko Haram. "Whatever happens on our leader, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky or his followers wherever in this country, none is responsible save Buhari’s government."
He made the declaration on Tuesday 4/10/2016, whilst delivering lecture on Ashura session taking place at the movement’s teaching center in Jos.
Sheikh Adamu Tsoho declared that, after what the Nigerian government did on the members of the movement, by perpetrating a Massacre in Zaria, where the Nigerian military killed 1000+ followers of Sheikh Zakzaky, demolished places all belonging to the movement, they killed 3 more children of the revered leader, they shot him severally alongside his wife and later whisked away to an illegal detention for more than 10 months now without been charged of any crime; and this time they intend to shed blood of innocent civilians under the scam of Boko Haram.
He said; "They realised that if they dare attack us directly during our gatherings, the world will point accusing fingers on them. In view of that, they sponsored a faceless individual in the name of Shekau to speak against us.. They will then attack us and held Boko Haram responsible." He further added that; "This Shekau is all a hoax meant to deceive the gullible. For long, Sheikh Zakzaky made it clear that we are not fools, we can not be deceived by a faceless figure so called Shekau. Who knows Shekau among you? You can deceive others, but we can not be deceived by Boko Haram! We are not fools."
Sheikh Adamu Tsoho further added that; "Initially the Boko Haram group declared to kill including the Izala sect followers, but this time Shekau only made mention of Shi’a, specifically Sheikh Zakzaky; and the Dariqa Sufi sect, excluding the Izala sect among those he calls to divine repentance, this is because the government is for the Wahhabis."
"Government is the Boko Haram, they are responsible for all these killings. Before, it was Jonathan’s administration, and now its vicegerent is responsible for it. That is why the Nigerian military and Boko Haram share similar principles. Nothing is Boko Haram but what they use in achieving their political goals." The Sheikh said.
He also shed more light on the stipulation of America to recently wage attacks on the so called Boko Haram group in the Northeast zone. Where he said; "This simply means America will start wagging attacks in Nigeria as it was doing in other countries of the world, killing Muslims under the sham of Boko Haram."
