Nigeria’s Boko Haram terrorist Abubakar Shekau claimed on Tuesday that his organization abducted 300 children from a government school in Katsina here. In an oral message sent to the news agency, he claims that these children were being given Western English education, which is forbidden according to Islam.
The Nigerian government has not responded to this message on the kidnapping of children. Boko Haram also kidnapped more than 200 school girls in the city of Chikob in 2014. Many of them were murdered. Some girls were used in videos made to promote religion. Since the terrorist organization Boko Haram came into existence in 2009, 30 thousand people have been killed here. Its goal is the establishment of an Islamic state.
