The Federal Government has said President Muhammadu Buhari prevented terrorists from declaring an Islamic State in Nigeria.

 

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed while addressing a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday, said Buhari’s emergence as president stopped terrorists from declaring Nigeria an Islamic State.

 

The minister recounted how terrorists took control of most states during the previous Administration.

 

According to Mohammed: “With the way, the insurgents were going before this Administration came into office, with their control of a vast swath of land the size of Belgium, with their freewheeling attacks in almost a dozen states, including the Federal Capital Territory which was hit at least five times, perhaps they could have achieved their aim of declaring an Islamic State in Nigeria if President Buhari had not acted decisively.

 

“After all, in 2014, Boko Haram declared a Caliphate in Gwoza after capturing Bama and Gamboru as well as other towns and villages in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. They installed their own Emirs, collected taxes and flew their flag before the military dislodged them.”
