Wrath of God Will Descend on Boko Haram, Says FG
Federal government Saturday said the wrath of God will fall heavily on terror group, Boko Haram for killing and maiming innocent Nigerians.
Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Abdul-Jelili Adesiyan, dropped the hint, while reacting to the second bomb blast that occurred at Nyanya, a surburb of Abuja last Thursday.
In a statement by media aide to the minister, Wale Akinola, the minister said the bomb blast was unfortunate, sad, callous, disheartening and unGodly.
He called on the insurgents to stop using God's name in killings, noting his disdain for blood letting.
“People should stop killing others in the name of God because Allah does not permit killing. Neither does He encourage blood letting as being canvassed by the Boko Haram agents.
"Whoever kills fellow human being will have the wrath of God as He frowns on unjust shedding of innocent blood,” he said.
