Boko Haram has kicked against the new sim card policy
and has vowed to move against the Minister of
Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.
Abubakar Shekau, leader of the terror group made this
known in a recent video made public on Friday.
Their grievances against Mr Pantami is the resolve of the
minister to have the sim card registration policy reviewed.
In the new policy proposed by the Minister, no Nigerian is
expected to own more than three sim cards. All sim cards
in the country must be updated with the National Identity
Number (NIN) before the year ends and subscribers must
tender sufficient reasons why they need more than one sim
cards at the point of registration or upgrade.
The initiative is said to have not augured well with the
terrorists, leading to the threat on the life of the government
Mr Shekau who spoke in Hausa also asked Tukur Buratai,
the chief of arm staff if he was tired of leading onslaught
against his members. Premium Times published the excepts
were the head of the terrorists asked the minister to repent
or be killed like other infidels.
“This video message is specifically released because of one
man, who thinks he is knowledgeable. I want him to archive
this message and continue referring to it till his death
comes. From today onward, you will continue to live in
sorrow, because I, Shekau, say so,” Mr Shekau said.
“This warning is for Isa Ali Panatami; don’t think simply
because you preach in English or because you are called a
doctor, it means you have knowledge of Islam. You know
nothing. Today you have become a minister, and you are
feeling you can achieve your selfish ends. You must know
that speaking English has nothing to do with Islam.
“You said you are going to block phone lines and other
means of communication, to frustrate the activities of Boko
Haram, right. But you must understand that we don’t
depend on such to take out our messages. Our messengers
are like the angels of God. How dare you attempt to stop
the works we are doing for the creator of the heavens and
earth, simply because you have become a slave to the white
world and the country. We pity you if you don’t repent.
“I swear to God, you are nothing. Initially, we have not
begrudged with you, but now you have become a slave to
the infidels; repent now and become a good Muslim. If you
don’t comply from now on, death will come to you, Isa Ali
Pantami. I call on my members in Africa, in Nigeria to rise
and do the needful. Let them know that what we did to
Sheik Jafar is just the tip of the iceberg. Anywhere you see
Isa Ali Pantami, don’t spare him. Isa Ali Pantami you are
nothing; even Jafar tried the same thing but we dealt with
him; talk less of you that is nothing in Islamic practice. And
from today on, you would not have rest of mind because
you have dared God,” he added.
