Borno state Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima,  Tuesday described the outlawed Boko Haram sect as a child born out of misinterpretation of the Holy Qur’an and misconception of Islam.
Strongly condemning the activities of the sect, the governor said there is no place in Islam where the extermination of innocent lives and destruction of properties is allowed.

He said this while receiving the Board for Qur’anic Education in the state, who brought winners of the 2014 National Qur’anic Competition held  in Dutse, Jigawa state before him.

Shettima explained that Islam is a religion of peace which does not condone killing and destruction under whatever form.

“Distorted translation of the holy book by the insurgents landed us in this mess, if we have had good understanding of Islam we would have been in a better state than now,” he noted.

...Then teach them well Mr. Governor. May you receive all the strength you need to do this. If I may suggest, having stayed in the north for so long, I guess its time the teenagers are fully enrolled in whatever education necessary for them to contribute meaningfully to the development of this nation.
I appreciate your courage in this assessment.
