Top Islamic leader slams military on Boko Haram


KANO, Nigeria: Nigeria’s top Islamic leader on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) accused the military of fleeing when Boko Haram attacks and terrorizing civilians, in the harshest ever criticism from the key cleric, as violence persisted in the northeast. A statement from the country’s top Muslim body, the JNI, described the military’s handling of the five-year Islamist uprising as “unfortunate, worrisome and embarrassing.” The JNI speaks for Nigeria’s top cleric, the Sultan of Sokoto Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.
