The militant Islamic group, Boko Haram, which has been responsible for much of the insecurity in Nigeria due to it
's spate of bombings and attacks on security forces has sent an email to major news outlets signed by it 's spokesman, Abu Qaqa, to say that there will be no peace in Nigeria until there is a total implementation of Shari 'a law in Nigeria.
Their email which was written in Hausa language had the following message to Nigerians and the authorities "the country would not have peace until there is 100 per cent implementation of Sharia law in the country as enshrined in the holy Quran as well as immediate release of all our members who were detained and in the custody of security agencies for no just cause”.
The group which has been celebrating the fact that the FG held a low level Independence Day celebration apparently because of them also declared that they had no iota of respect for the Sultan of Sokoto and other traditional rulers from the North.In his email, Qaqa disqualified the Sultan thus "our position is that the Sultan is just a traditional ruler who revolted against the teachings of his ancestors and put the Nigerian Constitution ahead of the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of the Prophet.”
