The extremist sect, while claiming responsibility for Thursday's attacks, says more bombings are coming the way of the media
The Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati Wal-Jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram, says it attacked THISDAY Thursday to send a strong message to the media that it would no longer condone reports misrepresenting it in the press, or blaming it for acts it knows nothing about.
Abul Qaqa, spokesperson for the sect told Premium Times, in an exclusive interview, that his organisation was fed up with the deliberate misinformation being peddled about it in the Nigerian and foreign media.
“We have repeatedly cautioned reporters and media houses to be professional and objective in their reports. This is a war between us and the Government of Nigeria; unfortunately the media have not been objective and fair in their report of the ongoing war, they chose to take side,” Mr. Qaqa said.
He identified three instances where he claimed his group was deliberately misrepresented by the media. The first, according to him, was the rumour of his capture by the Nigerian intelligence agencies.

D'BANJ: Don Jazzy Betrayed Me... Here's How...

Do you want to hear from D’banj on the Mo’Hits Split? We have heard from Don Jazzy. Read this and you will be touched. To be honest, am tired of the split already. But reading this, I am confused; I don’t know who to believe. You all must read it. And that is why am bringing it to you courtesy of It was an exclusive interview with D’banj in London. Please click to read….

There’s an important person in that building, right?’ the cab driver asked. ‘Important musician?
I nodded, too tired to let any curious driver drag me into a conversation.
He got the message and left me alone the entire drive from Canary Wharf to the London Marriot Hotel, in Grosvenor Square.
Then, as I got down to get my suitcase from the trunk, he gave me a knowing look, smiled, and said ‘are you the musician?
Of course not’, I said to him, smiling this time. ‘The musician is in Canary Wharf, his name is D’banj’.

Silence. Confused look.


Yes, D’banj. He’s big in Africa. You know ‘Oliver Twist?

Silence again, then as his final ‘no’ came, I said ‘Google him.

It was 4am on Saturday, April 21. I arrived in London eight hours earlier, and had spent almost all of that time chatting withD’banj, in his first interview with a Nigerian newspaper in a long time, and his first interview on the Mo’Hits brouhaha.

A source, who confided in our correspondent on Friday, said the agency was alarmed at the complicity of the bankers in the pension scam and had adopted measures to ensure their prosecution.  
The source said that while it would be difficult for the commission to prosecute banks, it had decided that all bankers and accounts officers found to have collaborated with the 40 accused persons facing trial for looting the pension funds would be made to face the full weight of the law.  
It was learnt that a team of investigators led by Mohammed Wakili, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, had discovered several bankers, who exploited their positions to aid the principal suspects to move huge amounts of money.
