Boko Haram leader has kidnapped a pastor and threatens to storm Aso Rock to expose the impostor who is parading himself as President Buhari. They made this claim after kidnapping a pastor and two women who are currently in their custody. They said that the man in Aso Rock Villa is not President Buhari and that they will attack Aso Rock very soon and unmask the impostor parading himself as President Buhari.
The deadly group is popular for their gruesome killing, destruction of properties and kidnapping since 2009 the group was formed as an insurgence. The group was later proscribed as terrorist by international community.
Reverend Polycap Zango who was recently declared missing has appeared in a new video where he is pleading with the Nigerian government and Christian authorities in the country to rescue him from the hand of the terrorists who he said abducted him.
Reverend Polycap Zango, a pastor with the Church of Christ in Nations, Jos, Plateau State, went missing while journeying to Gombe State for a conference. According to him, he is being held hostage in the terrorists’ custody alongside two other Christian women, who were also abducted.
In the video published by Sahara Reporters, the cleric is seen seated behind a prayer mat and says he was abducted on Monday, 19th October, 2020.
According to his words; “My name is Reverend Polycap Zango and I am a pastor at Church of Christ in Nations, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria. On October 19, 2020, I was travelling for a conference in Gombe when I was abducted by Boko Haram insurgents who caught me on the road. Right now I am with them.
“I am appealing to the governor of Plateau State, Simon Boko Lalong, and the senator of Plateau North, Barrister ID Gyang, and the Christian Association of Nigeria and my church headquarters to please help me and save me from the hands of Boko Haram. They also abducted two Christian women who are also here with me, we are appealing to be rescued.”
It is not clear if Miss Fayina Ali, a Kaduna-indigene of Adamawa State, who was also said to have gone missing same Monday he was captured is among the two Reverend Polycap Zongo mentioned. Miss Fayina Ali had held her marriage introduction on the weekend of her disappearance with her wedding with an Air Force personnel slated for December 2020.
She was reported to have been captured alongside with four other ladies by Boko Haram but no clear information has been received about them. Recall that the Boko Haram sect have shot dead five persons believed to be humanitarian workers.
The terrorist group publicized the development via a viral video it published on social media on Wednesday. The gunmen who carried out the killing said their victims were aid workers working for non governmental organizations.
The 35 seconds video featured five hooded armed men standing behind five abductees who were kneeling before them.
An unidentified voice speaking in Hausa said, “this is a message to the infidels who are using you to cheat and turn our people into unbelievers. You should know that your employers are just using you to achieve their aims, but they don’t care about you. That’s why whenever we abduct you, they don’t care about you.
“Our advice for you is that you should repent and turn to God, or else we shall continue to kill and abduct you all in all the routes that you traverse. And if you don’t heed to our warning, what is about to happen to these five aid workers would also be fate that will befall you too.”
At the end of the speech, one of the gunmen ordered them to fire the abducted aid workers. The gunmen summarily shot at the five men whose faces were all blinded.
The Nigerian presidency in a statement identified the aid workers to be those of the State Emergency Management Agency, Action Against Hunger, Rich International, and International Rescue Committee who were abducted a month ago.
President Muhammadu Buhari condemned the murder of the humanitarian workers, pledging that his administration would implement measures to prevent a re-occurrence of such tragedy.
The statement signed by Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the President on media and publicity, saying that President Buhari sympathizes with the families of the five aid workers, while praying that God will comfort them for their irreplaceable loss.
He assures them that his government will continue to do all it can to ensure that every remaining vestige of Boko Haram is wiped out completely from northeastern Nigeria and that the perpetrators of this atrocity face the law.
“President Buhari also condoles with the State Emergency Management Agency, Action Against Hunger, Rich International, and International Rescue Committee, whose staff have suffered this gruesome fate.
“He thanks them for their continued dedication and service to the victims of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria. He assures them that security agencies in the state will work closely with their organisations to implement measures to ensure that no such kidnapping of staff occurs again.”
Meanwhile according to our reliable source, more than seven soldiers have been killed by Boko Haram terrorists in Doska, Borno state, according to military sources. It was learnt that the troops were on a patrol of the area when they got tricked by the insurgents who appeared in military uniforms and gun trucks.
Doska, a village in between Ajigin and Talala in Damboa local government area of the state, became deserted since 2015 when the insurgents took control of the area which today remains one of their strongholds.
“The troops were on a fighting patrol, and when they got to Doska, they saw these people in military uniforms and military machines, and they even waved so our troops thought they were soldiers from another formation.
The troops stopped, exchanged greetings with these people. And as they proceeded, they ran into an ambush. Immediately, the insurgents closed in on them, opening fire. Seven soldiers lost their lives and 14 were critically injured.
Another source reportedly said the insurgents in the area are known to always ambush soldiers with the aim of stealing gun trucks and other weapons from the army.
Since 2015, the source said, the army has been trying to dislodge the insurgents in the area but to no avail. According to our source, that area has been their stronghold for years, and the Nigerian army has not been able to flush them out. For a decade now, the military has continued to combat the insurgents who have killed thousands and displaced millions in the north-east.
