One of the suspected Boko Haram members, Abdulwaheed Nasiru a.k.a Haulaki who allegedly participated in the October 2 multiple blasts in Nyanya and Kuje, two satellite towns Abuja that claimed about 20 lives has narrated how he was recruited into the dreaded Islamist sect. He was among the five suspects paraded Thursday at the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad Headquarters in Abuja.
Haulaki, from Okene, Kogi State said, he was further convinced to join Boko Haram when university graduates tore their certificates just to become members of the sect. The suspect who claimed his people are mainly Muslims, said he was able to attend primary school but did not complete because his parents were farmers and they said education was a waste of time. He added that was convinced to join Boko Haram at the mosque along the road before Total Filling Station, in Aiyoke area of Okene, Kogi State, by the son of Mustapha, the Imam and owner of the mosque, where he was indoctrinated into the sect.
