Boko Haram Kidnaps Borno Elder Statesman Shettima Ali Monguno

Shettima Ali Monguno
By SaharaReporters, New York

Unknown gunmen in Maiduguri, believed to be members of Boko Haram, this afternoon kidnapped respected elder statesman, 87-year old Alhaji Shettima Ali Monguno at the Mafoni Jumaat Mosque after he performed Friday prayers.

The kidnappers, who have contacted the family, are demanding the release of some of their members who are being held by security forces.

At the mosque, the abductors forced the octogenarian, a former federal Minister, into their car and sped away, shooting into the air to scare away worshippers.

Most residents, angered by the brazen seizure of the old man, prayed for his safe release but also for Almighty Allah to punish the perpetrators.
Confirming the incident, Munguno’s son, Rahma, told Saharareporters by phone that the kidnappers have made contact with the family, demanding not money, but freedom for some of their members being detained by the government.

Last week, the JTF in Maiduguri announced that the dreaded sect has set up a new squad which would engage in kidnapping.

Two weeks ago, the sect also reportedly made $3.5 million from kidnapping a French family in Cameroun.

VERY SAD

To all those expressing happiness over this unfortunate incident, my the kidnappers of the Niger Delta kidnap your fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers and do not release them until they die.

BH respect age and release the old papa.

Northern leaders must be held resposible for the show of shame.Had they developed their region,BH will not surface.BH should respect age and release the old papa early.

THE TIME OF RECKONING HAS COME

All those who feel they can steal and perpetrate stealing in whatever means and think God is not watching, should known that the Bible said there is a time for everything. Therefore, this corrupt leaders should be ready to face God's punishment.

NOT A BOKO HARAM AFFAIR

I can smell rat. This is not a BH affair. If the JTF had some intelligence on the BH 's new kidnap strategy, why not pre-empt it. All the lootings, extortions, car snatching are with the active connivance of the JTF. When ever a crime is reported to them they move in the opposite direction of the scene of crime. A car that was snatched at gun point in Maiduriguri was seen driven by a soldier's wife in Portharcourt. How comes. Torching business premises after looting in the name of chasing Boko Harams. shamelessly extorting money from commuters without searching their vehicles, even if if they carry millions of guns and cexplosives they don't care provided you pay their price.

Selfish top religious men

This selfish top alhajis thought that when they speak nicely and avoid criticising BH openly then they would be safer. If they acted to refer evil as evil while the BH were killing the Christain (majorly the Ibos and support the govt to clamp down on this highest level of incivility, then the BH would have looked for another country to perpetrate theri evil. It is not still late for the northern elite to cry with one voice but unfortunately their religion does not permit them to expose fellow muslim but it permits fellow muslims to kill others and cause you economic set back and now kidnapping and very soon rain sunami of armed rubbery using the same gun you thought they could use against the govt you thought you have been denied of. I advise! act fast or ........

Mosque

It is very sad that Boko Haram would kidnap an old man that just finished praying to Allah and coming from the Mosque, this really started me thinking and asking myself over and over again, what does Boko Haram wants?

Thinking and reflecting over this issue, one wonders, is it not better to kidnap past Northern leaders that impoverished their people than kill innocent people in churches and public places? Northern leaders had the opportunity for decades to better the lives of not just the youths in the North but all Nigerian youths, but, they rather decided to impoverish the youths just to use them to cause mayhem while their own children are in Western world getting western education in some of the best universities. Now the chicken has come home to roost.

This should serve as a lesson to all leaders, someday you will be called upon one way or the other to give account of your stewardship in this country.

RED ALERT !

This is a very dangerous trend !
If they can adultnap their own father , who will they not kidnap ? Our political leaders should watch against campaigning to the north under the guise of coalition . They may be adutnapped ! We need to be on RED ALERT !

Holy Kidnapping

Fellow Nigerians, welcome to Holy Kidnapping command center. All past and present politicians are invited for questioning by the revolutionary command council of Boko Haram.

Why release a young twenty something boy for an 87

"this afternoon kidnapped respected elder statesman, 87-year old Alhaji Shettima Ali Monguno at the Mafoni Jumaat Mosque "
_____________________________

A child born today in Nigeria is expected to live for only 52 years and kick the bucket as per people in the know i.e. The UN
I say please boko haram boys and girls keep him and do whatever you want. Why release and/or exchange a young twenty something boy for an 87 octagon on over-the-time-limit (52) to live in najia, why? Mind you, he is one those that created the condition that cut short our live expectancy to 52 and he is 87. This is one kidnap DONE RIGHT.

God have mercy

Kidnapping is not a new thing in Nigeria but when a blind group of terror chabged their motive from ignorantly islamising the nation to kidnapping the elders of the nation. Its means they lack vision. I always believe on nemesis. It will surely catch up with people behind them. But when God fight,who will wait. BH are enemies of God and God wil arise for His enemies to be scattered. U will sow what u reap fa

No Ransome - Will BK Chop Off his Head

Well let see if Boko Haram will maim a fellow Muslim or is this just stupid propaganda.

Book Haram cannot explain what it stands for and is killing different religious and ethnic groups,
Meaning it is no different than ALNEDA, another RAG TAG WANNA BE PHONY JIHAD SCUM OF THE EARTH group that deserveS complete obliteration.

BOKO HARAM IS SAYING A VERY

BOKO HARAM IS SAYING A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO THE GOVERNMENT FOR GIVING MEBERS OF BOKO HARAM, THEIR SURPPOTERS, ETC AMNESTY. THE GOVERNMENT HAS OPENED THE GATE OF HELL, BY GIVING AMNESTY TO BOKO HARAM. BY THIS GESTURE THE GOVERNMENT HAS INSTITUTIONALSED TERRORISM, MADE CRIMINALITY A NORM AND ETHOS. ANY DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT THAT GIVE SUCURE OR TALKS TO OR NEGOTIATES WITH TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS FORFIETS IT RIGHT AND AUTHORITY TO RULE OR GORVERN. THE GOVERNMENT MUST EXPECT MORE HIGHLY PRICED KIDNAPPING AS IT IS NOW AN ACCEPTED BISINESS IN NIGERIA.

What is your level of education?

Idiot?

@ Sultanofsokoto

Exactly my sentiments. The same Boko Haram that killed Gen Shurwa and tried to kill the Emir or Sultan, suddenly now, just "kidnapped" this 500-year-old mallam.

If ACF thinks we buy this, then I have a double-decker bridge in Siberia to sell them.

Akpos, you are very right.

Akpos, you are very right. Just like me, You know this country even better than Sahara reporters.The Politics of the north will be revealed soon. Let the media make all the noise for all I care. The likes of Ali Mongunu remained underground causing evils. These are the people that were milking Nigeria in the good old days. Sending their children abroad and giving them the best. Ali Mongonu even had a very beautiful daughter who warked with NTA-Maiduguri in those days that they had to advertise for a husband for her and promised the would-be husband riches unlimited, where did the riches come from? Nigeria Oil money. I dey laff....o. Even the Mai Deribes of this world did not spare our dear Country Nigeria in looting our Oil money. The evil that men do live with them. May Boko haram live to teach all those causing mayhem in this country a good lesson.

Long live Nigeria!

This depict the federal

This depict the federal government is hitting them hard.

Mangunu

What took you'll so long? You should get the rest of the men who ruined your lives instead of bombing innocent people. IBB is a target,The whole AREWA chieftians,all the ex-governors, sitting governors, ex-legislators and sitting legislators are fair game.Don't forget the judiciary! They started this mess and kidnappers, robbers, terrorists should finish it for them.

Dumbo knows BH ...just like Sagir knew they'll kidnap Monguno !

Who's fooling who? Dumbo knows the Boko Haram, let him order them to release the old man pronto! This is an insult. JTF who were forewarned about this should free the old man or be held complicit in this so-called new strategy. Dumbo, Ihejirika and Sagir Musa are the real Boko Haram thugs, they will be held responsible should any harm come to the old fossil. Nonsense!

not too fast mallams!

Hahaha! who are these bokos and their supporter's club trying to trick?! Na lie, that was no kidnap but an arranged job...Boko demands 20million dollars which of course will be paid by the Fed and the man and his family collect their share afterwards from boko, say 10%....

This mallams sha....always smart by half

Kidnapping as revolutionary tactics

Matters are fastly deteriorating in Nigeria. This elite-targeted kidnapping looks like a new phase but the JTF Commander had warned last year that targeted killings of political elites are coming.

What the JTF military commander however did not foresee is the kidnapping of the political elites.

If this kidnapping is not for ransom, it is ominous, because no politician is safe from it.

It feels like a revolution in Nigeria today, because all revolutions in history involved bank raids, kinaping, targeted killings of political elites - and, the spread of terror as standard Fabian tactics to wear out the government.

Ekwensu don begin eat

Ekwensu don begin eat ekwensu. Na so e suppose to be. Make una kidnap sultan of sokoto, then we go know say una

the conspiracy in the north.

Last week the jtf announced that boko haram has strted kidnaping and today we here that shatem munguna is kidnaped, pls whot is going on in our dear north, there is a lot of conspiracy going on, SAS has not been investigated, yet he still fly along with GEJ, how did the JTF knew of there current strategy, it means they have a credible intel, whot stop them from finding there sponsors? Killing innocent peoplle will not solve the issue, we need to know there sponsors so that we can solve the issue, and let me tell you here that muslims are the most affected victims in this issue of boko haram and JTF, pls who ever is sponsoring these evil against north should be exposed, I pray that mangunu should be released as soon as possible. And May God expose those behind it and there sponsors.

Limit Your Activities To The Sharia States

Provided that boko haram islamists limit their activities in the 12 northern sharia states and "the state of Osun," no problem. And, do not stop until you achieve your aim of establishing The Taliban Islamic Republic of Arewa!
