Nigeria`s top Islamic leader slams military on Boko Haram fight

Kano: Nigeria`s top Islamic leader on Monday accused the military of fleeing when Boko Haram attacks, returning only when the violence has ended to "terrorise" the victims.

"Soldiers take to their heels and abandon their bases, arms, ammunition and other military hardware on the approach of the insurgents!" said a statement from Nigeria`s main Islamic body, the JNI, speaking on behalf of the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa`ad Abubakar.

"Nigerian Security Forces only surface after the deadly attacks and terrorise an already terrorised people by installing road blocks and searching homes," it added, in the harshest-ever criticism from the key Islamic leader.
