“Credible sources have alerted the APC that the fake Shekau might become a tool to blackmail members of the opposition by coaching the phantom terror chief to say he was working for the opposition party candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari in order to link its presidential candidate to terrorism as it had attempted but failed in the past,” the Buhari campaign office said. In a statement by its media and publicity director Garba Shehu.
The office wondered where the “new Shekau” will come from after government at several times in the past, announced that they had killed the insurgent leader.
“The charge to the military, that they should catch Shekau alive by the President in the last 24 hours lends credence to the report that indeed a fake Shekau is about being created,” the statement said.
“It is both contradictory to the ideology he preaches and the psychological profile that the world has of him that Shekau would allow himself to be caught alive,” the statement asserted.
It said the attack back in Kaduna on Buhari was seen and believed by most Nigerians that it was perpetrated by the Boko Haram.
The opposition campaign said “unfounded allegations linking the opposition to insurgency amounts to leaving the issues to pursue personal attacks as warned against, barely 24 hours ago by leaders of the Catholic Community in the country, through Arch. Bishop John Onaiyekan.”
