Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the kidnap of the students of Government Science School, Kankara, Katsina State.
The terror group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, made this known in a 4:28 long recording released in the wee hours of today.
Shekau said the boys were kidnapped to promote Islam and discourage western education as well as discourage un-Islamic practices as Western education was not the type of education permitted by Allah and his Holy Prophet.
According to him, the school was not teaching what Allah and his Holy Prophet commanded, but rather destroying Islam.
The Boko Haram leader noted that though their actions may be subtle, Allah the Lord of the skies and earth knew whatever was hidden.
Meanwhile, the federal government has assured that the students would be rescued soon.
