Terrorists under the aegis of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) have said that they are on God’ s mission to overun communities in Nigeria; Niger State Government revealed.
The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Alhaji Ahmed Matane, who raised an alarm over the presence of the sect in the Borgu Local Government Area of the state, revealed that the group is trying to establish a caliphate around the Kainji National Park located in the area.
This, he said during a press briefing on Tuesday in Minna, as he went on blaming ISWAP for the kidnap of the Dodo of Wawa.
What Alhaji Ahmed Matane Said
” They claimed that they are not bandits, but poised to set up a Caliphate at the Kainji National Park. They claimed they are not bandits but that they are Godsend and they are operating from the border of Niger, Benin Republic, and Nigeria.
” Though Benin Republic has closed its borders, the ISWAP is operating around the periphery trying to indoctrinate communities there to accept their teaching and forget about what government is doing. ”
” The terrorists have been preaching against education and discouraging parents from sending their children to school. ”
In reaction to the revelation, @Ochukwu Sof said, ” ISWAP carry go! You may expand your Caliphate to the entire North, please! ”
@Obasi Agwu said, ” Allow them pls, let them govern their land as they want it, and we have our Biafra, develop at our pace, make our mistakes and correct them rather than forcing millions together without making any progress for many decades now. ”
@Ogbuefi Na said, ” Iswap, bandits, Boko Haram and bandits na scam how can you have for notorious terrorists in the north and the north are not botherd about them rather they are botherd about mnk and ipob. “
