Daily post reports that Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram terrorist group, has called for divine protection against Nigerian troops.
Shekau, in his latest audio, asked “Allah” to protect him and his followers against the intensive fire power of Nigerian troops.
The terrorist leader lamented that the “devilish act” of Nigerian military has made the Holy month of Ramadan difficult for him and his followers to observe.
In the 1:22 seconds audio, Shekau prayed that Allah gives them victory over Nigerian troops.
He explained that his followers abandoned the popular Islamic religious acts to practice the true worship of Allah, hence they would get victory.
Shekau urged fellow Muslims to support him in prayers in a bid to overcome the Nigerian troops which he referred to as enemies.
According to the sect leader: “If it is the devilish act and wickedness [of the Nigerian military], may Allah protect us from their evil. Oh Allah, keep us firm on your religion. We are poor things who know nothing, oh our Lord, Allah.
“We deserted Izala people to practice Your true religion; we abandoned Tijjaniyya people to practice your true religion; we deserted the Shiites to practice your true religion; we forsook our parents, uncles and aunties to practice Your true religion.
“It is because of your religion that we placed a knife on Your servants’ necks; but today, they are trying to change us from one thing to another. Oh Lord, have mercy upon us during Ramadan; Oh Lord, have mercy on under the blessings of Ramadan.
“Oh Allah, give us victory over our enemies. Oh brothers, for Allah’s sake, obey Allah and help me with prayers. This does not mean I am angry.”
