Maiduguri — ISLAMIC sect, Boko Haram, which has claimed responsibility for series of bomb attacks in the northern part of the country, yesterday, declared that its next targets would be offices of political parties nationwide even as it denied any link with serving Senator Ali Ndume who is facing trial in Abuja for allegedly being a sponsor of the sect.
Meanwhile, President Goodluck Jonathan has described as unfortunate, alleged involvement of Senator Ndume in activities of the Islamic sect just as Ndume
's supporters have called for his immediate release.
Senator Ndume was arraigned at an
Abuja Magistrate Court
, Tuesday, on a two-count charge of terrorism following the confessions of former spokesman of the sect, Ali Konduga, a.k.a Usman Al- Zawahiri, that the senator was one of their sponsors.
Denying any link with the senator, yesterday, the sect said that on no occasion did it fraternize with any politician in its battle to islamize
, noting that very soon all political offices of the PDP, ANPP, CPC, among others from the federal, state, local governments and ward levels in the country would be their next targets of attack. Nigeria
