Boko Haram says it abducted hundreds of Nigeria students

– –

Boko Haram has confirmed that it was behind the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolboys in Nigeria’s north-western Katsina State last week.

Over 800 students were in the school when the gunmen arrived on motorbikes and started shooting indiscriminately in the north western part of Nigeria.

The Nigerian military has announced that it had exchanged fire with the gunmen after locating their hideout in a forest.

Latest claim by Boko Haram signals its continued expansive and deadly reach in recent weeks.

According to the private Daily Nigerian website Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, said in a four-minute audio message that his group carried out the attack “because Western education is against the tenets of Islam”.

“What happened in Katsina was done to promote Islam and discourage un-Islamic practices as Western education is not the type of education permitted by Allah and his holy Prophet,” the website quoted Shekau as saying.
