Boko Haram says it carried out Monday’s double suicide attacks on the University of Maiduguri in Borno State, which killed four persons.

A purported audio recording of the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, was posted on social media late on Monday.

However, the audio’s authenticity has yet to be verified.

In the audio, Shekau said: “There is no need for long explanation. The bomb that went off in the University of Maiduguri today in the morning. Our brothers denoted them. May Allah accept their souls.

“Do not deceive the people by saying it is a mosque. What mosque in which you carry out unbelief in them. Has the prophet ever done anything like democracy in his mosque? You keep disrespecting the Prophet Mohammed.

“You build mosques and then carry out Jewish practices in them? If you are told it is bad practice, you continue to claim you love the prophet.

”We shall go to the hear-after and conclude this trial in the presence of Allah. We will do it again. We shall continue doing that. We shall not stop.

“We do not recognize anybody who mixes Islam with something else. Is a lie they are not Muslims. If truly you are Muslims then repent. Buhari we are angry with you. Kukah Shekah, may Allah kill you, we are not angry with you.

“Nigerians, we are not angry at you. But the things you have made it compulsory, as an act of worship to be angry with you. We do see your skins. Anyone who is an unbeliever, Allah says we should oppose him. We detonated the bombs.

“Liars! Liars! Liars! We thrashed you this week in Sambisa. You did not kill any one of our men. You lying sheka!”



The attack was the first on the university since the nearly six-year-old insurgency began.
