He also accused the west of trying to Christianise Africa saying that it was doing so with the aide of charities.

"They (West) strongly seek to Christianise the society…They exploit the condition of those who are displaced under the raging war, providing them with food and shelter and then Christianising their children," he said.

News24 Nigeria reported that the Nigerian Army claimed that the news of ISIS installing a new leader for the Boko Haram sect in West Africa is of little concern to them as they have them covered.

This claim was made by Director of Defence Information (DDI), Brig-Gen. Rabe Abubakar who said that the sect is ‘nearly dead’ and that the Nigerian army is not worried about a change of leadership.
