US, Israel and other Western powers have been accused of plotting the abduction of nearly 300 girls in Chibok, Borno state, as an excuse to invade and steal from Nigeria.
Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, made the accusation while speaking speaking at the annual Martyrs’ Day commemoration held at the Baqiyyatullah Hussainiyyah, Zaria on Saturday.
Zakzaky, said : the Boko Haram sect was a myth and the girls’ abduction a set-up to pave way for U.S. and Israeli military presence in Nigeria.
“Let no one be fooled, there is nothing like Boko Haram! It is a covert operation to balkanize Nigeria and steals its resources in the name of search of Boko Haram insurgents. If you can fool others, we cannot be fooled,” Zakzaky said.
According to the controversial cleric, the ultimate aim is to ‘steal Nigeria’s abundant resources.
“They realized there are gold deposits in Zamfara and Zaria – Birnin Gwari axis; gold and platinum in Sokoto and Borno.
“They did it in Iraq, as they went in search of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), which they never found but plunged the country into chaos.
“The same thing was experimented in Afghanistan before our eyes,” the cleric said.
He also alleged that the Nigerian military is working together with the leader of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau.“Shekau is presently being kept safe in a secret military camp,” he said.
