PDP chairman says Boko Haram killed his brother

The former Borno Governor stressed that he couldn't have been sponsoring the terrorist sect, yet they killed his blood brother.

 

In a recent interview with ThisDay, the former Borno Governor stressed that he couldn't have been sponsoring the terrorist sect, yet they killed his blood brother.

In the interview, he said, "Boko Haram wanted to kill me at a time because they believed that I was the one that reported them to President Umaru Yar’Adua to destroy their enclave."

Continuing, he said, 'It was after I left government that they moved to their different camps and bushes. Why should they kill my brother? Why should they kill my family if I am a sponsor of Boko Haram? Is there anywhere in the world that you sponsor people to kill you?'

Ali Modu Sheriff, however, believes that the rumour about him sponsoring the terrorists might not be unconnected with his decision to leave the ruling party for PDP.

'Let me give you a typical example. Just a week ago, all the social media planted my picture showing me with the card of APC joining the party. At that time, nobody wrote that I was Boko Haram.

'They said Sheriff was going back to APC; they were showing a card when we registered with APC before I left the party. We went to our villages to do it; that village they are showing on the social media was a village that was taken over by Boko Haram for the past three years. So, how could I have gone there to register?' he said.
