Ex-Boko Haram intelligence chief speaks on Shekau, Albarnawi, others

Abubakar Shekau in a recent video

A former Boko Haram Chief Intelligence Officer, CIO, Abdulkadir Abubakar, has warned the leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau, to stop using innocent girls who are being hypnotised as human bombs.

Mr. Abubakar, also known as Abu Muhammad, also warned other factional leaders of the group like Mamman Nur, Abbor Mainok, Abu Musad Albarnawi and Abbah Minok to repent from their deadly ways and embrace peace.

Mr. Abubakar was the CIO of the terror group and one of its top commanders, until his arrest in June by the military in Buni Yadi in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.

The Commander who spoke to PRNigeria in his cell in Maiduguri, regretted that a lot of innocent young girls were captured, tortured, hypnotised and used by Abubakar Shekau in the suicide bombing.

“I am calling on Abubakar Shekau, Mamman Nur, Abbor Minok and Abu Musad Albarnawi to lay down their arms and to stop the senseless killings.

“Shekau has continued to demonstrate his cruelty and atrocities against humanity. He had killed a lot of souls, destroyed homes and rendered people homeless.

“He continued to exercise God’s authority to himself by killing innocent souls at will without any justification. This was why all his commanders left him. He doesn’t have pity for the aged, women, children as well as young girls, who are mostly suffering and dying in his camp.

“His followers are raping and committing all sort of atrocities under his nose while he continued to show no concern. Many who dared to question his dastardly acts, were promptly eliminated by Shekau.

“Some of his commanders like Aliyu and our Chief Mechanic known as “Paper” were killed for begging Shekau to provide food to mothers and their children at the time our camp in Abiso ran out of food.

“When Shekau was told to help them, he said he did not come to Sambisa to feed the Children of “Handak” he said if 100,000 of them die every day, that’s none of his business.

“At some point women became beggars to feed their children in Sambisa, while at least 13 children get killed of malnutrition and other hardship meted on them by Shekau.

“This is the reason why Mamman Nur, Albarnawi, Man Chari, Abbor Minok and Abba Albarnawi including myself deserted him and form our own factional groups. Mamman Nur moved to the shores of Chad while Albarnawi and Abbah (Last born of Muhammad Yusuf) remained at the shores of Magumeri.

“All of us as at then were all hunting to kill Shekau just like the Nigerian military because of the atrocities he committed under our name. We had fought nine times with him and killed many of his men.

“Shekau must know that all those women he is sending with Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs), in places of worships, market and schools are our sisters and mothers and they don’t deserve to die.

“He must know that one day he would be called and to account for all the atrocities he has committed in the name of Islam. There is no compulsion in religion. Indeed God has really allowed the truth to prevail over falsehood.

“There is no verse of the Holy Qur’an that permitted Muslims to kill anybody. God will punish even those who feel happy while we are killed not to talk of killing innocent souls. So you cannot kill anyone who doesn’t believe in your faith or practice.

“Arrogantly, Shekau declared a whole country and people living it as infidels and ordered that everyone living in that city and not Sambisa must be killed. Islam can never be synonymous to senseless killings.

“Shekau should remember that he was nobody but ordinary student. He remember that he had only two sets of cloths when we were in Maiduguri. I remember ever telling him that “Brother Shekau why can’t you buy more cloths to wear? And he told me that he was afraid of meeting God in the day of judgement.

“He should look at himself and ask himself if he has achieved from the senseless course. Despite all the looted wealth and power he had acquired, was he able to buy himself good health. He is now a cripple isn’t that a lesson for him to learn and understand that God is punishing you for the pain you inflicted on others.”

  • Solomon Brown

    Reformed terrorist like our “reformed democrat” president. Is just me or can others smell the b.s?

  • Olayinka

    Shekau is only following the footsteps of Mohammed the fake prophet. Mohammed did exactly the same throughout his wicked Islamic campaign. Islam spread all over the world by force through the weapons of the sword, rape, murder and genocide. Over 300millions of human souls have died since 700AD when Islamic campaign began. And even today, its a weekly news around the world to hear of Islamic terrorists. The best thing to stop these wicked acts is to banned Quran all over the world because the terrorists use it as their own inspiration. To say that Quran or Mohammed did not support terrorism is Taqiyya.

    • Lawal

      Yes olayinka just as reverend Jim Jones was following the fake teaching of the fabricated book you called Bible, if there is any book that deserves to be banned from the face of the earth should be the Bible, I believe we all know the religion which inflicted the greatest atrocities on this earth is Christianity, all the religious wars in Europe, the conquest of America’s and Africa the annihilation of the natives American, African slave trade, first and second world wars, Vietnam, Cambodia, south Africa apartheid, Burundi and Rwanda you name them. All Christians supposed to hide their faces in shame rather than calling Muslims names over actions of petty lunatics like shakau, he is a moron compare to likes of Hitler, Mussolini, Charles tailor, central African warlords.

      • Olayinka

        No single part of the new testament Bible supported genocide, rape, murder and armed robbery but quran and haddiths recorded many series of campaign of genocide by Mohammed and Muslims. Muslims always lie to themselves to want to ignorantly or deliberately relate anyone evil as Christian. Those people and nations you mentioned NEVER got their inspiration from the Holy Bible as Jesus taught us to love our enemies. However, we can read for ourselves the campaign of rape, murder, robbery, genocide and destructions of innocent people by Mohammed who Shekau is only emulating. Shekau got his inspiration from the Quran and such barbaric book should be wiped out from the face of earth. Slave trade you mentioned is an Islamic practise . Without Islam the European slave trade would have failed. Mohammed himself bought and sold black people as slave and today we can still see slave trade in Islamic countries. At least we can see former slaves in America now as free men and women but in Islamic countries black slaves were killed mercilessly. Its a weekly thing to hear of Islamic terrorism all over the world. Any one supporting this wicked Islam should be ashamed of themselves. Islam has killed over 300million of human beings since its started in 700AD

        • Tahir Bunu-hamza

          ….you said the New and how far and about the Old Testament?

          • Olayinka

            Yes because Christianity started only in the new testament. Yes we believe and read the old testament but we are not practising Judaism. If you want to learn about Judaism consult the Jews. Our religion of Christianity started in the new testament and you cannot find one single Christian who use the new testament to rape,kill, murder or commit the acts of genocide like Mohammed did. I submit again that quran should be banned in the earth and the world will know peace.

          • Tony

            Olayinka,please can you give me those verses in quaran where Mohammed did those atrocities for reference purposes?

    • Tahir Bunu-hamza

      What is more TAQIYYA-IC than the way some bully nations would want democracy practiced at the UN …in a most pervasive and uncivilized way……..and for the weapons of war, who are the suppliers and promoters of the use of the modern day SWORD?

      • Olayinka

        I know you well Muslims, you like to divert attention always from answering the point against your genocide religion to other matters to hide your shame. We are talking about religion, you brought out politics. TAQIYYA !!

    • Aisha

      You dont u derstand it… Muhammad fought those army who fought him then… they were restrained for years not to buy nor sell nor travel.. they statyed feeding on leaves and they remained vey thin .. they killed and turtored those who says they believe in one God then…not until then God permitted him to fight back those who opressed them….in fact.. during the battle… there js mutual agreement to exempt the young, old pple, women, and do not fall healthy trees…. it is just a battle between the fit men only… and that was because they started maltreating the muslims then….

      Now…. shekau is doing opposite of all tthis, because he has no reasons whatsoever and his cruelty over people is what this article is all about… he is doing anti islam act…

      Thays why his old fellow member was speaking sense unto him….

      Islam is all about repel opression from the opressed people and not baseless act of cruelty like shekau….

      Thats why we muslims supported too that he must be brought down and to justice… he is definetly leading a life and instructions of satan like Neyahtu of Isreal…. thats why God we bring them down very soon…


      • Olayinka

        You can deceive ignorant readers and not me. What do you know about Islam except what you were brainwashed to believe. First where are your Islamic references for the lies you just told. You said lies that you were brainwashed to believe but no single reference to quran or haddith. I will give you references here of many activities of Mohammed robbing, killing, raping, murdering and committing genocide without being attacked. Tell your lies to fellow brainwashed people who have refused to read quran and haddiths but always asking the Arabs to lie to them.


        Kinana b. al-Rabi, who had the custody of the treasure of Banu al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, “Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?” he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-Awwam, “Torture him until you extract what he has,” so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead.Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, p. 515)

      • Olayinka

        Aisha, no woman should be a Muslim. This religion hates women passionately. Women are objects of sexual pleasure of men in Islam and you have half brain. Why should only the woman who committed adultery be killed but the man be left. God did not create women to suffer but to live a free and enjoyable life in which Islam cannot offer.

    • Bello muideen olajide

      “Father forgive them, for they no not what they are doing” that was for you and other ignorant even on the cross of Calvary by Jesus the prophet before Muhammad. Olayinka read very well, Islam means peace, the Muslim’s represent peace they preach peace and are symbol of peace. Devil use men irrespective of religion and creed, remember Judas and his like around today.

      • Olayinka

        Here comes another ignorant Muslim. Why is it that Muslims do not even know their religion. You are a Muslim but did not know what Islam means. Islam did not mean peace rather Islam means Submission. You submit to have peace in Islam otherwise you would be killed or pay jizya that is why ISIS and Boko Haram are killing.
        Secondly, let me correct you there is no Jesus in the quran. Quran only spoke about someone called ISA who was born by Miriam the sister of Moses and Aaron. Jesus Christ of the Bible was born thousands of years after Miriam , Moses and Aaron died. I bet you are hearing this quranic error for the first time. Your quranic ISA has nothing to do with Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

        • Halima

          Olayinka or whatever your name is, you are a TERRORIST yourself and you should be arrested. You are abusing and judging others believes, what is your business? Who do you think you are?You have your religion we have ours, practice yours to the best of your knowledge & ability and allow us practice ours.
          Where in the Bible were you taught to judge, abuse and insite? There is so much ignorance in your argument that I feel so sorry for you. Please feel free to learn the Quran through an Iman and stop listening to your so-call pastor. He is misleading so so badly. Mr Man, please grow up.

          • Olayinka

            Halima the stinking infidel. I thought you were a Muslim and you should be proud of your religion and your barbaric prophet. I was looking for your counter argument and Islamic sources to prove me wrong but you said nothing rather you were ranting. If I have told any lies against Islam bring them out clearly otherwise you should be ashamed of yourself for following a genocide religion who kill on daily basis.
            I dont blame you because according to Mohammed you suffer from Mind deficiency syndrome.

            Sahih Al-Bukhari 2658—The Prophet (the blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?” The women said: “Yes.” He said: “This is because of the deficiency of her mind.”

  • Sunday Olawale

    The handwriting is already on the wall. Some people are bent on painting this nation red using boko haram, herdsmen and other squads already on ground. Their main goal if POWER or political control using all the available wicked and godless apparatus to achieve their purpose. These people created the insurgents, feeding fat on insurgency, funding the groups, harbouring them, having mutual connections with the military/politicians/bureaucrats in charge of waging war against insurgency, and circumventing all efforts to put the problem at bay. The point is that of HYPOCRISY on the part of the key stakeholders due to their bloody gains. The current revelation is a tip of the iceberg. It’s only God that can checkmate them and He will do so once and for all.

  • MP-001* [Joint Chief]

    Very sad

    • Jach J. King

      Oh my God! MP-001* thanks for that comment “very sad” and really very sad indeed!

      Few days ago the Turkish President has cried out to the whole Africans and Nigeria in particular to withdraw their wards (children) from every Arabian more especially Turkish instituted schools of any level because they were indoctrinating them into scientific terrorism rather than the impartation of right application of knowledge of which they were being paid for.

      President Endorgan have identified the Arabians doing business of any sort in/at African states neighborhood, as a people that should be monitored much more than CCTV., because they are fake Muslims and pretenders of Islamic faithfuls.

      He reiterated that they don’t believe in Allah’s injunctions in the Qur’an neither consider worthwhile the Islamic teachings on peaceful co existence with one another, whether Muslims or others.

      It was observed presently that more than 1.2 million Arabians illegally were staying in Kano State in the pretext of Muslim brotherhood doing their businesses without paying taxes to the Government, instead they are making meaning contributions to the Book Haram terrorist under the nose of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

      At this point in time, It is not Donald Trump, the President of the USA but the Turkish President Endorgan who have boldly declared that we, Africans must not take religion in the place of the security of our Nations, being serious against these ungodly Arabians that are using religion as a cover for their satanic exploits.

      In fact, I have conveyed the Turkish President’s declarations to the senate President to overview and react accordingly.
