President Muhammadu Buhari has said with public enlightenment, people have realized that Boko Haram was a perversion of religion, rather than Islamic ideology.
The president, who said Nigerians now know the truth about the terrorists, also berated how the insurgents shout Allah Akbar(God is great) after killing innocent people.
Buhari stated this while speaking at a meeting with Karin Ahmad Khan, Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) at State House, Abuja.
According to him: “God is justice. You can’t kill innocent people, and shout; Allah Akbar (God is great). It’s either you don’t know that God at all, or you are simply being stupid
“To say Western education is unacceptable (Haram) is very fraudulent. That is why we are fighting them, and educating the people. And we are succeeding a lot”,
He added: “Education is fundamental. Religion and ethnicity are out of it. Some people have just made it a lifestyle to cause confusion, destruction and death”
