The double suicide bombing which claimed the life of a veterinarian professor in the university, Professor Aliyu Mani, was reportedly carried out by a 7-year-old boy.
Shekau, while taking responsibility for the Monday attack which led to the death of four persons and left several wounded said in a YouTube audio recording released that the mosque was “ungodly”.
Abubakar Shekau further added in the audio message: “The bomb that happened this morning, it’s my people. Don’t deceive people that it’s a mosque, how would you build a mosque and do ungodly things in it.”
The Islamist-Jihadist sect leader further added: “We are not angry with Nigeria. You didn’t kill anyone in Sambisa. We are praying that we don’t change; Koran is our teacher; this is the message we are sending to you. Are you [Buhari] as powerful as God?
“You should know it’s Shekau talking and I’m alive and it’s we that did it, even if King Pharaoh repents, we will not accept it.”
