We Did Not Kidnap or Murder The Europeans -Boko Haram
The Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram, has denied involvement in the kidnap and murder of the two Europeans who were killed yesterday after a failed attempt at rescuing them.
Speaking to reporters by phone, a man claiming to be Abu Qaqa, the spokesman of the dreaded sect, said “We are not behind the hostage taking … which led to the military operation yesterday in Sokoto in which the hostages were killed,” said the group’s spokesman Abul Qaqa in a conference call with reporters.
“We have never been involved in hostage-taking and it’s not part of our style, and we never ask for ransom,” he said.
“We know how to settle our scores with anybody. Therefore the allegation that the kidnappers were members of our group is ridiculous.”
Nigeria’s government “had better get its facts straight and find the true identity of the kidnappers,” Qaqa added.
“They should not use us to mask their incompetence.”
