Boko Haram Gives Reasons For Bombing Kano

The Boko Haram islamic sect through its spokesman, Abul Qaqa gave reasons for the weekend attacks in Kano, which led to the deaths of over 160 people. In a telephone interview with members of the press, the Boko Haram spokesman claimed the attacks were to avenge the persecution of its members.

Claiming responsibility for the attacks and multiple bombings on police stations, State Security Services, SSS, and passport office buildings in Kano metropolis, Qaga said: “Last night’s (Friday) attacks and bombings of Kano city followed our warnings in the second week of December, 2011.”


Besides, Qaqa also referred reporters to an e-mail message in which Imam Muhammad
Abubakar Shekau, Spiritual Head of the sect, threatened that: “Unless urgent steps are taken, the group will launch endless and violent attacks on Kano and its environs because of arbitrary arrest and persecution of his members.”

Shekau said the group had written an open letter to the people of Kano, including the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero; Governor Musa Kwankwaso, Alhaji Aminu Dantata and Khalifa Sheikh Isiaka Rabiu on recent happenings in the ancient city.

Shekau revealed that but for the intervention of some prominent scholars in Kano, his group would have made the city ungovernable a long time ago.


Qaqa said: “The message here is that everybody knows that a lot of our people were killed in Kano State, especially in Wudil town. We had perfected plans to take revenge but some notable scholars intervened by pleading with us.

“They also assured that our members would nevear be persecuted again and we took them by their words. Unfortunately, however, about five months ago, security agencies began trailing and arresting our members who are carrying out their legitimate businesses, alleging that they are all thieves and armed robbers.

“Again, we perfected plans to attack the city of Kano but the scholars pleaded that we should not. They advised that we should write a formal letter of complaint to some notable people. We agreed and sent letters to the Emir of Kano, Wamban Kano, Dan Masanin Kano and the governor of Kano State.

“We also posted the open letter on the internet, but nothing was done to stop the persecution of our members.

“Recently, security agencies launched a fresh onslaught on some of our members in Kano city in which even women and children were not spared. Many houses were raided and a pregnant woman was manhandled.

“Some of our members were tortured with electric shock. All these things happened in Kano, a city that we hold in high esteem.

“We have varied opinions about Kano, including the option of launching endless campaign of violence, but the scholars that have been talking to us are still persuading us to tarry a while.

“We are compelled to write this open letter so that the world will know what is happening.”

  • Boko haram, you guys are really arrogant and stupid, your cult member was arrested because he and you all are low life criminals who don’t deserve any rights. You think that you can do as you please and not pay the price? You’re in for a big surprise. God loves the peaceful people of Nigeria and will give them justice and blessings above all.

  • i wonder wat dis guys want…but we’v not heard any news of wat they claimed happened 2 dem..y do de hav 2kill innocent people in dis their quest.its such a shame.!!!Boko haram wat do u guys want???

  • Let us know the real truth bcuz (boko haram) is hausa language which is their name.
    (borno state) is a non-hausa speaking state and most of them are pegans or christians,so why do they not use sokoto,jigawa,katsina or other hausa speaking state as their (headquater) ?.
    Why are they not bombing schools or places of higher education and house of assemblies to show they’re truly against modernization as they claim ?.
    This is a method of disintergration by some selfish individuals.
    ALLAH YA BA DE SA A (amin).

  • Well killing innocent people hasn’t driven home your points. If truly you want to drive ur points home. Go and blow up the so called leaders not Nigerians who ® being opressed by our Govt daily.

  • Who are the scholars these BH people claim to have been getting in touch with? Why can’t these scholars tell Nigerians who these BH people are and what they want?
    If these BH people are really against westernization, they should stop using western inventions and ideas such as e-mail, telephone and the internet.
    If they have to drive home any point, why should it be through poor, innocent and helpless people Nigerians?

  • BH is a political and Religous group that is against the government of the day. Based on their belief it is an abomination 4 an unbeliever (Non Muslim) to rule over them. But ma concern here is why d brutal killings of the poor masses? Why d unreligious killings of Christians in Churches? Well, God knows every heart and I pray 4 his judgement upon each and every perpetuator of BH in Jesus name (AMEN)

  • The earlier nigerian government would realize that boko-haram is wagging war against this great nation the better it would be, those in charge should keep on being hypocritical and just one day the hypocrites would sleep and never see the morning sun.GOD IS WATCHING!

  • a true Muslim knows that vengeance is for Allah, if you cant forgive ur neighbors then dont expect Allah to forgive you, that is, if at all they were offended. in the first place, their demands are irresponsible & questionable given the secularity of this country, and should be granted with treasonable charges. such demands vindicate my suspicion that bh is a religious mask being used by politicians against jonathans’ govt. bet you, if jonathan resigns today you may not here of bh again.

List, God will surely put you all and your family into everlasting punishement for that kind of comment you make on the 24th of this month. You fools, why can’t you also join bh groups and be killing innocent people for your socking gods.

  • Stop the Bombing, obendence is better than sacrifice, God can fight for himself, he does not need any one to do it for him, talkless of kiling, in the Holy Book, the Bible or the Koran, God said we should not kill. Do not bring the roth of God on ur self and ur entir generations.
