Isa Pantami: Boko Haram kicks against new sim card policy, threatens minister

Published

on

Boko Haram has kicked against the new sim card policy and has vowed to move against the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami.

Abubakar Shekau, leader of the terror group made this known in a recent video made public on Friday.

Their grievances against Mr Pantami is the resolve of the minister to have the sim card registration policy reviewed.

In the new policy proposed by the Minister, no Nigerian is expected to own more than three sim cards. All sim cards in the country must be updated with the National Identity Number (NIN) before the year ends and subscribers must tender sufficient reasons why they need more than one sim cards at the point of registration or upgrade.

The initiative is said to have not augured well with the terrorists, leading to the threat on the life of the government official.

Mr Shekau who spoke in Hausa also asked Tukur Buratai, the chief of arm staff if he was tired of leading onslaught against his members. Premium Times published the excepts were the head of the terrorists asked the minister to repent or be killed like other infidels.

“This video message is specifically released because of one man, who thinks he is knowledgeable. I want him to archive this message and continue referring to it till his death comes. From today onward, you will continue to live in sorrow, because I, Shekau, say so,” Mr Shekau said.

“This warning is for Isa Ali Panatami; don’t think simply because you preach in English or because you are called a doctor, it means you have knowledge of Islam. You know nothing. Today you have become a minister, and you are feeling you can achieve your selfish ends. You must know that speaking English has nothing to do with Islam.

“You said you are going to block phone lines and other means of communication, to frustrate the activities of Boko Haram, right. But you must understand that we don’t depend on such to take out our messages. Our messengers are like the angels of God. How dare you attempt to stop the works we are doing for the creator of the heavens and earth, simply because you have become a slave to the white world and the country. We pity you if you don’t repent.

“I swear to God, you are nothing. Initially, we have not begrudged with you, but now you have become a slave to the infidels; repent now and become a good Muslim. If you don’t comply from now on, death will come to you, Isa Ali Pantami. I call on my members in Africa, in Nigeria to rise and do the needful. Let them know that what we did to Sheik Jafar is just the tip of the iceberg. Anywhere you see Isa Ali Pantami, don’t spare him. Isa Ali Pantami you are nothing; even Jafar tried the same thing but we dealt with him; talk less of you that is nothing in Islamic practice. And from today on, you would not have rest of mind because you have dared God,” he added.
