Jamaatu Ahlil Sunna Lidawati wal Jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram, may have resolved that security agencies no longer have it easy with dissidents in its fold who continue to provide information.
This indication came via speculations that the group has silenced its self-styled spokesman and replacement for the arrested Abu Qaqa.
Security sources disclosed that “Abu Qaqa” -II, may have been killed, last week, on the orders of the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau. He was said to have tried to denounce the sect after intensive trailing by security agents that saw him changing locations severally.
It was gathered that “Abu Qaqa -II”, whose real name was Mohammed Anwal Kontagora, hailed from Kontagora, Niger State.
“He took the name Abu Qaqa in February this year after the original Abu Qaqa, 42, also known as Abu Dardaa, Mohammed Shuaibu, Mohammed Bello, Abu Tiamiya and Abdulrahman Abdullahi, were arrested January this year”, one of the sources told Sunday Vanguard.
“Kontagora, like his predecessor, was non-Kanuri; so his case, as applicable to every non-Kanuri, was said to have been decided summarily.
”The sect is said to be shopping for Abu Qaqa -III, as its new spokesman. This greatly accounted for its inability to either own up or disassociate itself from the Easter Sunday bomb blast in Kaduna that killed so many commercial motorcyclists and tea vendors.
“This again could have forced Abubakar Shekau (now looking lean) to personally appear on a you-tube network to reply to a statement credited to President Goodluck while in South Korea”.
The group has made it clear that Jonathan is not capable of stopping their activities.
