El-Rufai Claims Christians Are Behind Boko Haram In A Plot To Destabilize The North

Former Minister of FCT, Abuja and popular political commentator published this piece written by Aminu Sarki on his Facebook page a few days back:

Is Boko Haram real or the metaphor of an agenda against a section of the country? – asks Aminu Sarki…..

Agenda against the North, Hausa/Fulani and Islam

Evidence:

So, without doubt there is Boko Haram which aims to establish, according to them, a just social system of governance as they understand it, which path to its establishment is strewn with violence and there is a “Boko Haram” which uses the violence of the authentic sect as a cover for its own violence aimed at psychological warfare, the need to maintain the status quo of northern division and to, through massive propaganda, cast a select set of northern leaders or politicians as sponsors of terrorism “because they have lost political power.” Any objective observer couldn’t have missed how through massive propaganda certain northern politicians are being made to look like the sponsors of the terror group because of their insistence on President Jonathan to honour the zoning agreement of his party, the P.D.P., cleverly avoiding the fact that the terror group’s existence preceded the zoning debate. In fact, this deliberate misinformation and miseducation will benefit more those who want to perpetuate the ethno-religious division in the north as these select northern leaders are cast in the mould of the Hausa/Fulani enemies of Christianity bent on enslaving or exterminating the northern minority tribes to engender a Hausa/Fulani hegemony or oligarchy. This latter “Boko Haram” could possibly be a mix of some Christian and Muslim psychopaths who can do any work for money in the same fashion as there are gangs of armed robbers with memberships cutting across religious and ethnic lines.

Evidences of my claim are:

(1.) The reported arrest of the suspects that sprayed bullets on the Gombe Deeper Life Church worshippers of which the suspects arrested were alleged to be Igbos. Keen observers would remember that “Boko Haram” claimed responsibility for that attack. Noteworthy also is the fact that the arrested suspects were moved from Gombe to Abuja and since then nothing has been heard about them.

(2.) Shortly after the Gombe Deeper Life Church massacre, following quickly also after the Gombe township bombing fiesta two men, named Hassan Ojudu and Samaila Yakubu, all of them Christians, were arrested in the same Gombe town with a vehicle loaded with explosive devices and ammunitions. If they were part of those who did the bombing fiesta Christians should note that “Boko Haram” also claimed responsibility, and if they were not a part of the bombing fiesta be assured that if they had not been arrested and they succeeded in using their own merchandise “Boko Haram” would have claimed responsibility. Curiously, since they were moved to Abuja nothing has been heard about them.

(3.) If the eight COCIN church members arrested with explosive devices at the Miya-Barkatai branch of the church in Bauchi State had succeeded in detonating what they were arrested with, be assured “Boko Haram” would have claimed responsibility and since the village is near Jos, Plateau State some brainwashed youths with hearts filled with hate would begin to pounce on any available Hausa/Fulani on sight for revenge.

(4.) If Miss Lydia Joseph had succeeded in burning down the St. John Catholic church in Bauchi city be assured it would have been attributed to Boko Haram or to Muslims.

(5.) If Emmanuel King, the guy who disguised as a Muslim wearing a turban and kaftan, had succeeded in bombing down the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Yenagoa the Bayelsa capital “Boko Haram” would have claimed responsibility, and the intended desire for reprisal would have further brought the real desire, which is polarization. It doesn’t matter whether the guy is sane or insane as he was later touted to be. Also, possibly in further pursuit of this polarization agenda some persons were reported to have burnt down a worship centre of the Church of God Mission International in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital as reported by the LEADERSHIP newspaper of Sunday, January 15, 2012 on page 9. Who did it may not be known now, but there is the possibility it could have been meant to trigger some kind of attacks against some undesirable elements with the added benefit of maintaining a national division.

(6.) If Madam Ruth had succeeded in bombing down the ECWA church in the Kalarin area of Kaltungo in Gombe State verily, verily I say unto thee “Boko Haram” would have claimed responsibility notwithstanding whether she was hypnotized or not as some may want to claim.

(7.) After the COCIN church headquarters bombing in Jos defence authorities issued a statement disclaiming the man lynched while trying to escape from the vicinity as not a soldier, whereas the man was wearing military uniform and was later identified as a member of the church. To lend credence to this possibility the Special Task Force (STF) on security in Jos on Sunday, March 25, 2012 paraded one Mr. Alex Danladi who was caught wearing army camouflage t-shirt, cap and boot while parading himself as a soldier. He was paraded alongside one Mr. Dung Bulus, a suspected fabricator of guns and some others whom the authorities said are students of the University of Jos. Also on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 the 2 Brigade, Nigeria Army, Bori Camp, Port Harcourt paraded one Abba Ibrahim allegedly caught with military uniforms and other gear including weeds suspected to be cannabis. He was said to be a dismissed military personnel and hails from Billiri, a predominantly Christian town in Gombe State and that at the time of his arrest he was standing trial for another case of impersonation (see THE NATION newspaper of Wednesday, March 28, 2012 page 57). Now, for a fee wouldn’t this Alex Danladi, donning his military gear, ask some persons manning some church entrance to open the gates and some paid murderers would drive in and detonate their bomb laden car? Or wouldn’t this Abba Ibrahim do the same for money?

(8.) On January 11, 2012 two Nigerians named, Sunday Eze from Anambra State and Samuel Taiwo from Ogun State and some three Ghanaians were arrested in Ghana with some heavy weaponry carefully concealed in a truck, which was to be brought to Nigeria. Opposing bail for the suspects in court on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 the Office of the Attorney-General of the Republic of Ghana said “the arms and ammunitions seized on transit to Nigeria were to be used to fuel terrorists’ activities in the country.” See the DAILY TRUST newspaper of Wednesday, March 28, 2012 page 3. These Nigerian suspects are from southern Nigeria and bear Christian names. So, on whose behalf were they bringing in those arms of which the Ghanaian authorities said were to be used for terrorism in Nigeria? And which terror group do they belong to?

(9.) On Tuesday, April 10, 2012 a 38 yea- old man named Monday Davou was arrested while planting a timed Improvised Explosive Device (IED) or time bomb, if you like, at the Makera weekly market in Riyom Local Government Area, Plateau State. This was with intent to commit mass murder, for that is what planting a bomb in a market will do. Now if Monday Davou’s bomb had exploded be sure that a “Boko Haram” spokesperson will have claimed responsibility and even before the statement of claim comes Monday Davou’s kinsmen would have launched “reprisal attacks” on any person that looked like Hausa/Fulani and their properties, and would have probably roasted some of the Hausa/Fulanis and eaten them like they did sometime in 2011.

(10.) The DAILY SUN newspaper of Monday, February 20, 2012 on page 12 reported the arrest in Akure, Ondo State of a gang of five armed robbers led by one Evangelist Wale Adelu, “an evangelist of one of the old generation churches, which has branches in the state capital…..and they were said to be meeting in his church before they proceeded on any robbery operation.” Wouldn’t this “evangelist” and his gang agree to bomb churches for a good fee?

(11.) Similarly, the SATURDAY SUN newspaper of Saturday, March 10, 2012 on page 10 reported that 11 cartons of explosives imported from South Africa and “carefully packaged to beat security checks” were intercepted by the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos. The consignments were said to be for “Miero Marble Granite and Stones Limited in Kaduna State, with one Mr. Michael Awara Ernest as the representative to collect the explosives at the cargo terminal.” The Customs Area Controller in charge of the airport, Mr. Charles EporweiEdike while parading the suspect said “If these items were released to him, they could have been used to cause mayhem; we are now going to hand him and the items over to the police for further investigations.” Well, since the handover to the police nothing has been heard about it again. And let the Muslims bearing Michael Awara Ernest step forward to the nearest police post for proper identification and documentation, please.

(12.) The THISDAY newspaper of Friday, January 13, 2012 on page 6 culled a news report from the BBC in which a British-based arms dealer, Gary Hyde was being prosecuted in a London court for unlawfully arranging the shipment of about 80, 000 guns and 32 million rounds of ammunition from China to Nigeria in 2007. But, the big question is, to whom did he make his shipment? To Muslim radicals or to some church going criminals?

(13.) On Sunday, February 19, 2012 four persons were arrested while trying to detonate explosives at the St. Theresa’s Catholic Parish, High-level in Makurdi the Benue State capital. The LEADERSHIP newspaper of Wednesday, February 22, 2012 on page 10 reported the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state’s command, Mr. Alaribe Ejike as saying those four persons arrested were Christians and not Boko Haram members as speculated by members of the public. He said “We are still trying to find out certain things about them, but we have not confirmed whether they are Boko Haram members. It remains one thing, and as soon as we find out, we shall inform you accordingly.” Up till now nothing has been heard from the police. But, poor Alaribe Ejike may not have known that there is a “Boko Haram” with members possibly cutting across religious lines impersonating Boko Haram for some people’s strategic interests.

These few examples are possible involvements of Christians in betraying the church and Christians and the nation.

boko haram, el rufai

  • A wise boko haram member, if caught in the act will deny the group and claim christian to avoid harsh treatment and possible torture by the SSS. elrufai should no that. or maybe he has too much hate in his heart to think properly.

  • It is a learning point 4 those that are being decieved by d perpetrators and causing crises in d name of religion, lets digest dis instances and rethink , i mean gud reasoning.

  • How can this sickler be saying these things. Pls, all ask him for me what is the motive of a christian who bombs a church, or openning fire on a congregation of worshipper. Muslims have serious problem with a christain ruling this country. The Northerners think it is their birth right to rule. Whether the insurgency is political or religious, all I know is that its origin is from the North and insha Allah, it will remain in the north..

  • It’s unfortunate if El Rufai would decend so low from his public stature, to become a defender of religion. This is a country , ‘where anything goes’. After all, blood is thicker than water, they say. Inductrination of dangerous secterian values that commenced from the womb to adulthood is more dangerous than illiteracy, which is synonymous with “Boko-Haram” itself. Who, is he, that would dear not be seen to be symphatetic to Boko-Haram. It’s just a matter of time, the real sponsors will start coming out.

    • I have suspecting that El Rufai is sick,now I can authoritatively say that he is raving mad! If christains are behind the attacks,why have they never attacked a mosque? U see christains holding service under security surveillance,have you ever seen a mosque under surveillance during Jumat prayers? You are a demented fool!

  • So why are the northern leaders not doing anything to find the christians if that is the case. El-rufai should shut his stupid mouth if he has nothing of import to say. The north muslim or not have always been prone to violence.

  • why are you proving to the world that, muslims will ever be educated illitrates? You evidence, and you are as well asuming (if they were). And for some one to claim a responsibility of what he has not done most be the bigest educated fool. I advice that u and ur boko haram members should go back to school.

  • @Ezekiel, @YK, @Nigerian, @Anti-BH, you all are being sentimental. I am a christian, but see all the point that El-rufai has given, they are true indication that some of our own have a serious hand in the issue and disguising as Boko Haram. We christian should try to check ourselves before Christ checks us, because we are helping in the killing of innocent souls whether Muslims or not

  • Mallam El-Rufai is no longer eating Government money he is busy accussing and finding fault here and there. Give him a post and he will tell you its bad habit or manner to talk while eating!

    There may be some chip of truth in what he is saying but was Kabiru Sokoto a Christian? Suleiman(yoraba) arrested in kano and BH suppose Leader Abubakar Shekarau are Christians?

  • Mallam Elrufai is getting the whole things wrong,are Kabiru Sokoto,and the three Islamists fundamentalists declared wanted for terrorism christians?.For the fact that someone has a christian background does not mean that he or she is truly a christian.The truth they say is bitter but that is the only thing we need right now to fix our dear country Nigeria

  • While his evidence may be true,its not a basis to draw that conclusion. The Bokoharam we are aware of have clearly stated that they are muslims on a mission to forcefully convert christians to islam or kill them. They have also stated that they are against the government and police. So until they publicly declare otherwise I will regard the “evidence” as a set up.

  • Going over the said evidence, I see that many of them are assumed. For instance,the 12th evidence gives no reason to suggest the mans religion. But el rufai, for reasons best known to him concluded that he must be a christian.

    I also wonder how the “evengelist” robber relates to the bokoharam issue. If that were the case,then will it be safe to conclude that buhari is a sponsor since I’m yet to hear him issue a public statement condemning bokoharam? And since he said there will blood shed in 2015 if he doesn’t win elections.

    Its is inappropriate for an educated man to draw conclusions based on sentiments!

  • It unfortunate nigeria av a crop of graduate like u guys. It a very easy task 4 us all. This man as challenge us all to indirectly to proof him wrong, d mentioned dailies will b available upon request from d publisher. We need to confirm his submission and remove d preset mind we all av about this whole issue, then we wil be able to acertain d real pple behind d unrest in our nation.

  • I WONDER WHY PEOPLE CANNOT READ BETWEEN THE LINES! This write up wasn’t written by Elrufai himself but one Aminu Sarki. Let’s face the truth, all these incidences were cited from the daily news, we all know this! The write up is indicating that christians are also involved as well as the muslims who stated it – it is a sheer responsibility of all Nigerian. Please let’s put sentiments aside and deal with the menace collectively! May God bless and save Nigeria!

  • El Rufai has clearly asserted how he sponsors BH. The truth is that no evidential facts, apart from their ‘names’ suggest more of their Christian link. Anyone can claim to answer any name. All these are Rufai’s sponsored BH members. He has never condemned any bombing or assaults and never told us how the Kabirus arrested were tried and sentenced. Jail break all point to what? Al Quida are all Christians , Osama a Christian. El rufai have some beans to spill sort his role in sponsoring terrorism.

  • Brilliant delivery of facts. Thumbs up, Mr El-Rufai. Ironically, only a few Nigerians would read this n find any sense in it. One thing is certain though, there’s more to the BH menace than meets the eye. Plus, the headline is quite incriminating. Maybe u could be a little more careful with the information passed to such media outfits, sir.

  • Mr. I think you are being myopic and bias here. I will say ur an extremist too. Don’t blame christians for your doings. It won’t work. I ain’t buying that that. Go sell it somewhere else

  • el-rufia disappoints me greatly. How can one draw conclusions entirely based on newspaper publications. The manner in which he systematically described d objective of BH as a group of people seeking to establish a just social system of governance in which its path is strewn with violence says so much about his involvement in BH and his refusal to acknowledge that their modus operandi is indeed evil. What is d social justice in bombing d very people u seek to bring dis justice to…

  • Wazoid or wateva, ur a devil in disguise,infact u belong to de nomads class of el rucow.I am convinced dat el rucows and his subsequent poster ar educatedFOOLS.i wonder why most muslims cant be honest to themselves and their Allah if theres any.

  • Let’s assume they use hungry people who have christain names,all I know is that these people are under influence,I have a hausa name but I’m not a muslim at all,the main people in this group are muslims,God will expose all very soon

  • Let’s assume they use hungry people who have christain names,all I know is that these people are under influence,I have a hausa name but I’m not a muslim at all,the main people in this group are muslims,God will expose all very soon.@Zakayo thank u sir

  • HABA EL-RUFAI YOU ARE A BIG CONFUSIONIST HOW ABOUT THOSE GUYS THAT WERE CUAGHT IN THE MOSQUE IN KANO ON LAST FRIDAY PLANTING IED IN THE FEGGE JUMAT MOSQUE TO YOU THEY MIGHT BE CHRISTIANS TOO. WELL I DONT BLAME HIM IT IS JUST THAT HE HAVE NO ACCESS TO GOVT MONEY AGAIN, YOU ARE BIASED.

  • For an ex minister with avalanche of prostitutes always at his retinue….he lacks any form of credibility talking about his private life, not to talk about national issues…all those carefully selected lies should be disregarded by any sane mind.

  • When people of reasoning are talking, it is unfurtunate that most comentators are most unreasonable… I am a xtian to the core but the truth is that most of we xtians have sinned againt the Lord. This man gave evidences that are verifiable. Why do we crusify him sentimentally? We should face the fact and act accordingly to stop this wate of lifes. It may be our church tommorrow and I am not ready to die now.

  • I am a Muslim. But you see el rufai’s problem is marrow deep for he has deliberately blinded himself from the truth. No doubt,a number of xtians are involved with the whole BH thing but the group has clearly stated its mission. The large popn following him on Twitter give him pretensions and he assumes too much to his account on that note. People who talk like him are selfish and not truly bothered about the plight of other people. You can easily tell he us spiteful and capable of looking down on people. MAY Allah forgive me if my assessment is wrong and reward him for it if I have wroned him. Amin.

  • @Mathew Adeboye, What if these said christians are impersonators?. Any who calls himself a christian and involves in such act is not a christian (christ like). Christ was not known 4 violence, after all there are many churchgoers. If U are a true christian, will call a churchgoer a christian?. El-Rufal should think from both sides of the coin b4 coming to speak publicly.

  • y’all,how else do u think anti-christ was suppose to operate? if u judge by news from other parts of the world (obama and RFID which has openly declared d upsurgent of the 666 according to revelations,also see the gradual unification of the world into one earth governmental system,apart frm d other signs of the end time) Nigeria’s BH issue is just one out of many test run attempt of d anti christ. ile ti to lo.

  • El-rucow i mean El-rufai is a confirm idiot,i wil say it anywhere any time,a christian wheather sinner or not a sinner has the fear of God in him,he can kill some one,accepted but cant go to the house of God and do what that idiot is claiming.They want leadership right?But they will never get it in Jesus name

  • U av a point el-rufai bt d truth remains dat all terrorist ar muslims evn dou nt all muslims ar teroris. Talkin abt d bombin in jos cocin church, a christian may b involve bt shortli afta boko haram claim responsibilities(i.e 2say xtains involved in such acts ar bn paid/sponsord by muslims). Most poor nigerians ar bin paid 4 bombin wich u n i n all nigerians knws d facts!!

  • El Rufai is a champion mischief, he ought to be a solution to national problem rather than sentiment. He should be arrested by security operatives where he can give more information on his assistance to this group.

  • read carefully and you will understand the author very well. what he’s saying makes sense to me; the perpetrators arent muslims alone, so the BH shouldnt be regarded an islamic thing even thou it claims so. what are those xtians caught doing? fighting for islam? what about the southerners caught, fighting for the north?
    To all we care, you can call his names but we know he is an upright person.
    @shadowluvly

  • I can see that sentiment has already beclouded some of ur reasoning. if not, the man has presented an incontrovertible evidences to back his claim that boko haram has some element traceable to xtianity. note entirely islamic, meaning, its predominantly done by muslims. and there u go making frivolous accusations on El-rufai. we all know of the bickering between churches in nigeria before the advent of BH. how do u now divorce the above evidences jst bcos church is bn mentioned. lets be objective for once pleaseeeeeeeeeee.

  • I feel so sorry for all those judging by sentiments. Whether Boko Haram members are muslims or xtians, taking innocent lives for whatsoever reason is unacceptable in God’s sight. I think we all need not be fanatically by picking side or casting blames on one sect or the other, rather we should think of how to better things, that’s what I expect El-Rufai to be doing and not trying to prove to the world that xtians are also culpable of this dasdardly act. I’m beginning to have a feeling he is one of them with various statements credited to his name.

  • El-rucow. Am muslim,but,This ur statrment wil agravate issues x2. I bet u.why bring more confusion.why wait dis long befor writing? Shows u hav an evil plan.May allah punish u.

  • El-Rufai’s defence is an acid test & prove that the evil perpetrated in the north is islamic and possibly the northern politicians are their financials. They have been silent on this matter and their silence showed that they applaud the activities of BH. Mr El-Rufai if christians are the brain behind BH, an insane man would know that mosques would be the targets. Why churches are attacked but not mosques? El-Rufai nigerians respect you but why have you connive with and privy to the evil of Boko Haram?

  • The headline should ‘ Criminal involve in BH activities destilise the North’
    Journalist ar very dangerous. They use that to spoil Elrufai’s name.
    The evidences still remain valid.
    Some of us don’t like the truth and that’s why we r in dis mess.

  • I expected somebody to ask why is it that “Christians” are caught each time they want to bomb but Muslims and boko haram members bomb successfully. The truth is that the same people that sponsor the terrorists also sponsor the make-believe “christian” bombers in order to distract attention and cause disaffection. The whole scenario is a set up and that explains why nothing is heard of the arrested “Christians”. On the other hand boko haram members are known for using fictitious names to disguise themselves. Nobody including el rufai knows d outcome of investigation which may not support his claims anyway.

  • People wake up El-Rufai is one of the sponsor of this sect. His only telling d government dat they are not faceless so Mr President u have a directive now, u now know people to dialogue with.

  • Infact e-rufai is insane, he is member of bh. To my own believe, if suicide bomber can giv up his life to accomplish his mission, he can also change his name to christain name incase if he is intercepted and the mission fail so as to claim that christains are also involved, if not why mosques are not bombed? To b sincerely speaking, we can believe him if mosques are equally bombed. One question 4 him, can christain fight 4 shariah law?

  • they were told by their sponsors to claim to be christians, mention places in the south if caught in the act period. besides sss have unraveled that but come to think of it why would a sane man give a thought to what this demented smallie is saying talk more of believing him. some few fools really suprised me by believing on what he said…

  • Some folks pretend to b christians,there are principles christians fellow,some weak muslim pretend 2 b christians eg Wazobia,u muslims are heartless including ur sponsor El Rufai

  • Let dd truth be told people;things happen within churches nd u know it.let’s not pretend here,now all these are reports u nd I read in our dailys so wat are sum bigots talking about?wat he’s saying is that BH has become a platform for dffrnt ethnic/religious criminals to sin against humanity.tell u wat I know this for long.believe wat is happenin nd hope d gov’t finally amends nd we’ll be safe or keep been sentimental till u’re bombed.nigerrian bigots!!

  • Most people that have commented on this article are retards. If someone takes a story for a newspaper daily and uses it to back his proof, wouldn’t you rather question the daileys than question elrufai. Read understand and digest these facts before you make stupid comments out of sentiments. Have you ever asked yourself where all those suspect BH arrested are? Even if they are muslims is our C in C a muslim? Why haven’t they been tried? Why is it so difficult for GEJ to tackle this menace? Ask yourself questions and THINK. Elrufai got it all RIGHT!

  • El rucow or wateva u call ur name is an idiot for thinking of such thing and dat demented fool wazobia is an imbe. I don’t realy knw how people reason dis days. Even a kid will knw dat dis publication is noncence. If ur hand dey scratch u 2 write, go and look 4 a cow 2 flog and keep ur hand busy fools

  • The recent report by the house of reps.revealed that muslims were killed more than the christians, but for peace to reign the muslims never attempt to launch reprisal attack despite the fact that christians are arrested trying to bomb their own churches. Did you remember that over 200 muslims lost their lives in Kano during d 1st attack by BH do you know over 160 muslims are killed at Yobe cattle market hoz many muslims are killed every day? How about the massive maiduguri massacre that claimed the lives of over 2000 people summarily executed(mostly Muslims). What about the heartless killings of over 500 muslims by irate Christian youth in jos in september 2001? Or do you remember the unjust killings of muslims on their way to the “Mosque” in same Jos by same christian youth in November 2011? . Why then if there is church bombing christians go for irrational killing of innocent muslims? Then who are the terrorist please ?? After all the confessions of Henry Okah of those behind the killings!!! let’s think and act fast we must live in peace we must be careful!!! Boko Haram is not Islamic. In Islam, if u kill a man without authority(death sentence giving by courts), u will fast 60days uninterrupted before Allah will forgive u.
    Holy Quran 5:82 says “Strongest among men in enmity to the Believers(Muslims) wilt thou find the Jews n Pagans; and nearest among them in LOVE to the Believers(Muslims) wilt thou find those who say, “We are Christians”; because among these are men devoted to learning. And men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.
    So who are d Boko Haram representing? Why kill Christians when d Holy Quran says Muslims n Christians are closer to each other in LOVE?
    Boko Haram is a Political agenda not ISLAM.
    I therefore implore you to please give brother El_rufa’I a break, he qouted what somebody rightly said.

  • be truthful to urself 1st, something is wrong wit ur religion and stop denying dat. it is evident all over the world e.g yemen, afghanistan, parkistan, libya, somalia, iran, kashmir, thailand, indonesia, nigeria, mali, egypt, tanzania, kenya, ethiopia, sudan, palestine, israel, france, u.s.a, holland, norway, turkey, india, bangladish, etc ur religion no matter how small wherever it is present would not let ppl be in peace. pls accept Christ and experience the true love for God and humanity. Thanx and God bless

  • @Halima if not of what u’ve written seeking forgiveness if u wrong the gentle man’s write up i would have daught ur claiming Islam as ur religion for u’re very wrong ..

    1. Why cant u or anyone writing on speakable word to a gentle cheak all references he gave for his claims ? i blv if u go to all the media houses mentioned with the date of their publications claimed by the writer can write to falsify his claim not to be talking nonsense the world over are reading what u people are writing in response to simple truth ..

    2. We all know u knew whats been going on & keeping to urself for purpose best known to us as sentimental , although u’re planing Allah is the greatest planner Islam must be victorious ….

  • Its worrisome that man is using religion to destroy itself. God created man in the beginning not religion. Religion of our fore fathers in Nigeria is neither Muslim nor christian. Whatever this monster of Boko Ram is agitating, does it require killing fellow human being?. This cannibal of people should be crushed and destroy with all its takes. If Islam require that you must kill to enter their heaven, then let them kill their fellow Muslims. The truth is hidden but darkness cannot prevail over light.

  • in d history of north Muslims, we did never have any millitant group that kill with even knife let alone gun and bomb! So we know dat all dis mayhem are done by xtians terrorists but afraid of comming out and do it openly. Look! U cannever harm us. B4 u many are d countries dat engaged in fighting Muslims, dey wasted their lives,time and resources while Islam revived and carry on! We hope you’ll continue wit ur plots go on! U’ll all faint and tired.

  • A fellow muslim came on air to explain the mission statement of BH. He said they are actually fighting Jihad. He said BH are pure muslims, but that they are operating certain section of the Quaran which does not want to have anything to do with western education and technology. Space will not permit me to write. My advice to BH is that they should pursue all the northern so called elite and butcher/slaughter them. They are wicked, they have their own children abroad in western world imbibing western everything and they are using these innocent souls indoctrinate them to kill and also die. I see fraud and evil in the north that is why it has not been well wit them. It cannot happen in other part of the country cos people are educated. Its too late for them to say BH. The world has become one. BH must die.

  • I think Something is fundamentally wrong with the psyche of our people in Nigeria. May God forgive all those involve in these senseless killing and destruction of properties, both them, thier sponsors and supporters all in the name of Boko Haram.

  • Mallam N. El Rufool!
    I wonder how you got to the office you last held at the Federal Civil Service… Gosh! You’re so Myopic in reasoning. Do you actually think an impish cattle Keeper like you can sway Nigerians into believing the well selected and doctored lines you have projected?
    You should not have spoken at all…
    What’s Nigerians business with knowing who and what the BH’s are? All we want is respect and regards for human lives! That’s all!
    Wheather you assert to it or not, Muslims anywhere in the world are violent about their believes no mater their Habitat! Its not your fault.
    [Consider this extract: M. Khan 9:29: 32
    Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    partners they associate (with Him).”And the Jews say: Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and
    the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouths.
    They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allahs Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth! They (the
    disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allahs Light (with which Muhammad SAW has been sent – Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be
    perfected even though the Kafiroon (disbelievers) hate (it)].
    I’m satisfied ‘true’ and unsentimental Muslims understands my point…
    All we want is peace (if possible), if not (the inevitable is certain)!

    Note: Christians we really have to study the Qu’ran alongside our Muslim ‘brothers’…

  • We have many fools in nigeria Look at the truth from El’rufa’I but this yeye christians folded their hand and shun away from it ,while they know what he is saying is right , they are busy insulting him wether you like it or not christians. Are the sponsors of BOKO HARAM idiots

  • wannan zancen haka yake. this is a true talk i would like Christian commentators to open their eyes and read the article very well most of the highlights were reported by the Christian based media’ by that I mean media that belong or operated by the christians. Allah ka tsare mu, ka Tsare addinin mu, amin.

  • Thumbs up to you El-Rufai! if u r looking for attention,it shouldn’t be in this manner. Christianity does not preach violence, it teaches to be humble and at peace with others. What does Islam preach? Boko Haram is sponsored by the highly placed people in this country whereby their families are nt residing here, Boko Haram is a political game. It’s quite unfortunate hw d poor, illiterate northerners are being lured into it. Boko Haram has a face, but I knw God will expose all those behind this evil in no time. There is blood on our land! Our blessed country has been soiled. The blood of the innocent will cry, d children etc. I see REVOLUTION. God bless and save Nigeria! El-Rufai, are you nt one of them?

  • when a muslim is been caught with a knife by the police, they considers it as part of their religion.but when a christian does that,he is been considers as a thief.i steys in north and i know the capabilities of the northern people.if truely elrufai said all these things then i considers him as a liar cos the hausas can not tolerate christain distabilizing their own land.instead of advising the hausas and fulani to get themselves rid of illitracy inorder not to be easily convinced by some of their so called imam,that killing as part of jihad will make them go to heaven and inherit up to twelve wives.just imagine.tell elrufai to shut his mouth up.that is my word.

  • @ Chika.. Do you know what Jihad means? Jihad means Holy War. There are two forms of Jihad- the one you fight within yourself (this entails choosing between what’s right and what’s wrong), and actual warfare.

    Now, what led to it?

    When the Prophet (PBUH) began to spread the message of Islam, the unbelievers (pagans, idol worshippers) of that time decided that Muslims didn’t deserve to live; they attacked Muslims, took over their properties, and killed them. Muslims were oppressed. Initially, they were asked to ignore the pagans and maintain peace, but when the situation became unbearable, God asked them to fight back.

    The first verse revealed with respect to Jihad (V 2:190) says ‘And fight in the way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors’. This verse is the ‘foundation’ of Jihad; it prescribes the standard for warfare in the name of God.

    Fight against those who fight against you; God did not say ‘fight against those who piss you off’, He didn’t say ‘fight against those who you don’t like’.

    ‘Fight against those who fight against you’ means self-defence is the ONLY form of violence that’s permitted.

    ‘But do not transgress limits’; self-defence was the previously established limit. ‘Transgression’ would then mean fighting people who didn’t attack you first. This is termed ‘irjaf’. Irjaf and Jihad are two extremely different things.

    Before you judge the over one billion Muslims in the world by the actions of some hell-bound transgressors, kindly permit me to draw your attention to the Muslim capital of the world; Saudi Arabia. Do Christians live there or not? How many times has a suicide bombing occurred there? How many times have some obviously deluded, highly misguided maniacs demanded that they all revert to Islam?

    This brings me to another issue- suicide. My Qur’an tells me that suicide is a one-way ticket to Hell. Couple that with aggression, and tell me what the outcome would be.

    This brings me, inevitably, to Boko Haram. Personally, I believe what happened in this case was a deliberate move by government to hijack a problem that should have been solved at inception, and turn it to a political tool for division.

    Nigerians have always had a penchant for tribalism; add different religions to the mix and the potion becomes even more volatile and potentially lethal. Just how lethal that potion is, is what we’re all experiencing now.

    Frankly, what this is about is speaking for myself and others like me, and most importantly, sparing Islam the pain of being seen as something it’s not.

    Claiming Islam encourages violence is akin to saying that Christianity or

    Buddhism or Zoroastrianism, or even Scientology, gives room for a vice that some of its followers have.

    Right now, I’m just so glad that Hitler and Truman weren’t Muslims.

    My point? PEOPLE are evil, PEOPLE kill, and taking up arms and killing little children is no justification. Boko Haram does not have the mandate of Nigerian Muslims to exterminate Christians. When Boko Haram killed Imams almost on a daily basis, there were no reprisals. Nobody said ‘Muslims have asked Boko Haram to kill the clerics’. When busy areas of Kano were bombed, no one said ‘Muslims are killing Christians again’.

  • Religion and the Media are the instruments that causes problems in the whole world. It amazes me when i see Nigerians puts sentiments in everything. We are talking of lives here and yet we all bring sentiments rather than face the reality, that y i rarely comments.

  • MALLAM NASIR EL-RUFAI. YOU AND BUHARI ARE JUST TRYING TO INCITE RELIGIOUS UNREST.CALL YOUR BOYS (BOKO HARAM) TO ORDER.ENOUGH OF THIS DISRESPECT ON MR. PRESIDENT.THE NORTH HAS RULED FOR ABOUT 38YRS AND THE SOUTH GAVE THEIR SUPPORT.WHY CANT THE NORTH,YOU AND BUHARI GIVE THE PRESIDENT A BREATHING SPACE? DO YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING? I EXPECT YOU AND OTHER PROMINENT NIGERIANS TO MOVE FOR A NATIONAL CONFAB TO TRY AND ADDRESS SECURITY AND OTHER NATIONAL ISSUES AND NOT JUST ATTACKING THIS REGIME UNNECESSARILY.PLEASE DON’T MAKE US LOSE RESPECT FOR YOU.STOP BEING BIASED.ARE YOU SAYING NO GOOD THING HAS COME OUT OF THIS REGIME? HABA!
    PREACH PEACE, RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE,HUMILITY AND LOVE SO THAT WHEN YOU ONE DAY BECOME THE PRESIDENT THESE VIRTUES WILL FOLLOW YOU.

  • @obinna… Islam has existed since from Prophet Adam,Noah, down to Moses,Jesus and Muhammad. The Muslims hold jesus as One of the mightiest messenger of God. A person is infact not a Muslim if he doesn’t believe in the messengership of any prophet including Jesus christ. So we muslims have no grudge or prejudice against Jesus. We love Him. He came to preach love. In Islam your faith has not perfect if you don’t love to your brother what you love unto yourself. Let us see some of the major attrocities comitted against Humanity.:
    Who started the first world war ? Muslims ?
    Who started the second world war ? Muslims ?
    Who killed about 20 millions of Aborigines in Australia ? Muslims ?
    Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nakazaki ? Muslims ?
    Who killed more than 100 millions of Indians in North America ? Muslims ?
    Who killed more than 50 millions of Indians in south America ? Muslims ?
    Who took about 180 millions of African people as slaves and 88% of them died and were thrown in Atlantic ocean ? Muslims ?

    No , They werent Muslims ……

  • It cannot be any clear now who the Spokesperson of the Islamic terrorist in so-called ‘Nigeria’ is. It takes an insider with deep knowledge to have all these fact and able to defend the evil sect that he called ‘good’ here.
    Unfortunately, there aren’t many people in that space called ‘Nigeria’ that have the deep sense of analysis to analyse comments and body languages, and even those that can do so, they hardly make good use of it.
    That said, It is clear without ambiguity that this man and his gangs are the disciples of the likes of terrorists like Ahmadu Bello who said on quote “…the new nation called Nigeria should be an estate from our great grandfather Othman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We must use the minorities in the north as willing tools and the south as conquered territories and never allow them to have control of their future”.

    Then another terrorist: “The conquest to the sea is now in sight. When our god-sent Ahmadu Bello said some years ago that our conquest will reach the sea shores of Nigeria, some idiots in the South were doubting its possibilities. Today have we not reached the sea? Lagos is reached. It remains Port-Harcourt. It must be conquered and taken.” — Mallam Bala Garuba in WEST AFRICAN PILOT, December 30, 1964.
    Many more real time plans and open boasting of it is only what this little sadist is following, he is a propagandist that knows the act of deceit, by distracting attention.
    Maybe tomorrow he will also tell the world that Christians and Igbo/Biafrans were the ones that carried out the pogrom and genocides on same Biafrans from 1966 to 1970 and still going.
    I feel so sorry for the zombie from so-called Niger Delta, who from all indication has already dug half his grave.

  • I like people that represent without sentiment. Wazobiya & Abdullahi, your mode of thinking is quite different from others, that is to say you are very intellegent to your own thinking and people like you will always prevail the truth. Keep religion aside and always say the truth, that is your way out… God bless you!

  • I cant pick my time to be reading all comments, but from what I see, many people thinks very reasonable while others are rubbish, not even knowing what they are doing totally.

  • I wonder why some people passed their endeavours in life,cos must of them ar just sentimental in their thoughts bt my advice is if u knw u ar ignorant u better shut up ur dirty mouth than to continue sprading rubbish to public in d name of comments.I dare Christian fellows to carry their Bible and study very well than thinking negative cos most of u doesnt knw what bible say abt Islam rather u ar just born to see urself as a christian,bloody sentimental.El-rufa’i u right keep on telling them d truth no matter hw bitter it is.May Allah save our country.Ameen

  • You blipping lizard, you’re so confused that your lost job as former minister of FCT has affecting your ability to think rationally. How can you fucking spit this shit from your smelling mouth? you’re a troll AIR ROOF

  • I converted from islam to christian because mohammed and islam are fake who is already enjoying his days in hell fire. So like wise his followers. I thank JESUS for my life.

  • I‘m not against any RELIGION wat so ever but Dis man call El rufai mst b a madman wlking in d street b4 OBJ pick him 2 fct distroyer,inshrt he needs medical attention pls 9ja pple do him fvor B4 dis man elrufai strtd act like a rabies Dog.

  • Anyone could go and do a change of name in case they are caught in their heinous act, claim to be a christian so as not to be tortured during interrogation, El Rufai should know that, but I’m not surprised even on twitter he tweets nonsense, he’s always against the fg, and always looking for someone to pin the blame of boko haram on. Who knows he might be one their sponsors!

  • Pls leave Mallam El-Rufai with his policy of Politics. “Idan mai magana wawa ne, mai saurari ba wawa ba.” Bravo to Don El-Rufai for his writings. All these People mentioned, are claimed to be christians going to destroy Christians’ institutions, communities and lives; and no any name is mentioned as a muslim who is going to carry same activities in muslems areas. Wow, El-Rurai The greatest confused being, who is looking for like-minded followers to present this policy as been the truth.

  • why are Nigerians biased. all d writer is saying is dat d problem is bigger than wat we see, and d reference are there. this is not a story. wat we should have been protesting is what is fg/security, doing wt all d Muslim and Christian arrested terrorist.were they released, or pardoned or wat are they still waiting to fish out d sponsors so that we will all have peace once again.

  • Nigerian christians and their sarcasm, sooo spiritually brain washed. No wonder the Bible it self says seeing they see Not, hearing they hear Not so that they may understand(mathew 13:13).
    So also the Qur’an tells the same thing; deaf, dumb n blind and they shall not return to the path.
    The plain truth is written on the wall but becos of ur spiritual blindness you still don’t want to accept.
    Mallam El-rufai has provided his facts therefore any one who is not satisfied can as well produce their proves and facts for us to see instead of shielding your self behind your phone commenting and throwing insults that you have No liver to say when u are placed right in front of him. We Muslim are all daring the Christian PRODUCE PROVES your preposterous allegations on Muslims.
    QUR’AN is a Manual for Mankind just read it with an open heart then you will see how peaceful it is instead of finding fault and violence in it. Your intention is what God is going to grant you. Seek for the truth and the truth shall set you free( John 8:32). May Allah expose the unjust who ever they are Ameen. Salam
