‘Kaduna-Abuja Train Attack Not Our Doing’ -Ansaru 

Rita Enemuru, Reporting

The Jama’ar Ansarul Muslimina fi Biladi Sudan known as Ansaru has said they had no hand in the train attack that happened along the Kaduna-Abuja railway in March, 28.

This was contained in a statement distributed to the residents and motorists plying the Birnin Gwari road on Thursday.

The statement which was obtained and translated by Nigerian Tribune was written in Hausa with title; ‘Message to Nigerian Government and the Citizens.’

The group stated that though the attackers of the train claimed their group’s name, they were not responsible as the name( Abu Barra) mentioned was not their leader’s name.

Ansaru asserted that their mission is to work for Allah by protecting and defending Muslims that are being oppressed by the Nigerian government and other African countries.

The group also claimed that they don’t kill and abduct people anyhow that they only deal with those they consider oppressors and infidel.

“We are Jama’ar Ansarul Muslimina fi Biladi Sudan want to inform you that the attack of Kaduna-Abuja Train is not by us, even though the attackers claimed our group’s name. It is not everyone that we used to attack.

“Our mission is to work for Allah by protecting Islam and Muslims who are being cheated/oppressed. Our group’s aim is to become defenders of Islam and Muslims from the wicked Nigerian Government and other black African countries.

“The name being claimed by the Kaduna-Abuja Train attackers is really our group’s name but Abul Barra is not the leader of our group ( Jama’ar Ansarul Muslimina fi Biladi Sudan). Our group does not concern much of making propaganda.

“Anytime we so wish, we will reveal to the public the name of our group leader and it’s mission.

“We want the general public to understand that, we don’t kill anyhow and is not everyone we used to abduct unless if we are sure that he is a Kafir or an oppressor.

“Even if you bath with money because of your wealth, we don’t care unless what is for Allah and we must protect people against oppressors to the best of our ability.

“Members of public should also understand that, in the process of protecting Islam and the right of Muslims, we can be right or wrong but our wrongdoing would not be deliberate.

“At this juncture, we are concluding by praying for peace to be upon the faithfuls,” the statement read.

Earlier, in a recent security update, the state governor, Nasir El-rufai has confirmed the presence of the group in two LGAs of the state, namely Giwa and Birnin-Gwari.

In the same vein, the chairman of Birnin Gwari Emirate Progressive Union (BEPU), Ishaq Kasai in an interview confirmed the receipt of the statement.

According to him, “our coordinators from some of the wards intimated us that the Ansaru group came on motorcycles and dropped the pamphlets in their various communities as well as to motorists.

“We asked them to bring the pamphlet to us as you can see.”
