July 13, 2013 – Boko Haram Leader Abubakar Shekau Backs Yobe Boarding School Killing “We Fully Support Killings At Western Education School In Mamudo”
The leader of the dreaded Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Abubakar Shekau said the group supported the massacre of 42 people at a boarding school in Mamudo, Yobe state.
Though the group didn’t claim responsibility for the attack, a recent video revealed their support.
“We fully support the attack on this Western education school in Mamudo,” in northern Yobe state, Abubakar Shekau said in the 10-minute video speech.
The mostly Hausa language message shows Shekau, designated a global terrorist by the United States, kneeling on mat with a Kalashnikov resting on his left shoulder.
According to witnesses, in the early morning attack on a government-owned boarding school, gunmen round up students and staff in a dormitory before throwing explosives inside and opening fire.
Almost all of those killed were students. It was the third school attack in recent weeks and the second in Yobe.
