The council dared him to prove he is courageous enough by coming out to face the Nigerian Military.

The council was reacting to a video posted by Shekau where he admitted to killing a top member of the council, Sheikh Ja’afar Mahmud Adam.

In the video, Shekau also threatened a serving minister under President Buhari’s government, Isa Pantami.

The Secretary-General of the council, Nahi’u Baba Ahmad was addressing a press conference, he said:

It was observed at the initial stage of this administration coming into power, the insurgency de-escalated to the barest minimum.

However, recently, there have been some lapses on the part of the military.

These lapses are causing a gradual rise in the activities of the insurgents again, he said. Furthermore, he referred to the increase in Boko Haram attacks as a sad development.

He went on to say that the threat to the minister is not specific to him alone.

He noted that other members of the council are not safe and Shekau is trying to intimidate the whole council.

Moreover, he referred to the bombing of a mosque in Katsina State as dreadful and an unfortunate calamity.

Then he said:

“Accordingly, the Council has resolved that it is time to call off Shekau’s bluff by challenging him to come out of hiding, accept a muqaabalah (intellectual challenge) on their crooked aqeedah (religious ideology) with the rest of the Ulama’ (Muslim Scholars).”

Furthermore, he stated that if Shekau is really the leader of Boko Haram, he should be bold enough to face the military.

Finally, he expressed condolences on behalf of the council.

He said,

“The Council would also like to convey condolences to the Governors and peoples of Borno, Yobe, Kaduna and Katsina States, on the most recent horrendous loss.”
