While he is free to make such statements, I beg to strongly disagree. Poverty is NOT the reason Boko Haram exist. For the uninitiated, this may sound absurd but there is a clear and deliberate effort to weaken Nigeria's internal security before 2015, the year of our general elections and incidentally the very year Americans said we will implode.
The whole idea is to create so much tension and distrust along our major fault line: RELIGION and thereafter make it difficult for whoever emerges winner in 2015 to be accepted by all Nigerians. The result is simple: go for each others' jugular, fight and kill yourselves while NATO led by the US secures a dubious UN resolution to intervene in our internal wahala--as if they love us more than we love ourselves--- and in a manner reminiscent of Libya, bomb every city killing men, women and children while still singing 'God loves America'.
Forget those ragtag street urchins who are busy manufacturing and throwing IEDs; they are all small fries. Unfortunately, they fit perfectly into the matrix of being used without them even knowing. Catching them won't reveal anything. I bet Kabiru Sokoto, Abu Qaqa et al, do not even know anything, least of all, the sponsors of Boko Haram. It is a complex web.
Every true Moslem, personified by the Sultan has openly condemned the activities of Boko Haram. The question then is: Why is the Boko Haram which, hitherto was confined to the far corner of North East suddenly become 'national' over night? Has anyone ever wondered why this so called Boko Haram is so sophisticated and elusive? As you ponder on this, bear in mind that we have been told 'Nigeria will break up by 2015'.
It is part of the New World Order, powered by illuminati and represented by those who said they do not have permanent friends or enemies, but permanent interests. This should be sufficient clue to understand who are behind Boko Haram.
