President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he suspects some international groups to be responsible for the dreaded terrorists group Boko Haram that has been taunting Nigeria for years. He stated that the suspected International groups wants to destroy Nigeria and that is why they sponsor Boko Haram to cause mayhem in the country. Buhari added that the name ‘Boko Haram’ given to the terror group is fraudulent and suspicious.

President Buhari made the statement while delivering an address at a lunch organized by the Kano state government on Monday, January, 30th, after the commissioning of some federal and state projects.

Buhari said;

“When we came into power in 2015, Boko Haram was in control in 13 of the 27 local governments of the state, only four were with the government then.

“More so, half of the local governments in Yobe state were with Boko Haram.

“Today with the help of a patriotic and dedicated governor in Borno state the local governments have been recovered.

“What is Boko Haram? It is very fraudulent. I suspect there’s an international group that wants to destroy Nigeria. If not, how can Boko (western education) be Haram?, the President stated.

Recall that President Muhammadu ran for election on a promise to annihilate the terrorist Boko Haram group in 2015. As a retired military general, it was hoped that he had the security experience to deal with the issue decisively. However, the situation actually deteriorated under his watch with the terrorist group splintering into smaller cells and spreading beyond the northeast of the country.
