As gathered, the leadership of the group has proclaimed that “we will murder the US Ambassador if the MOU is signed”.
“We know his house in Maitaima [in Abuja]. We know his vehicle and the time he leaves his house and the time he returns” stated one of the leaders with the Islamic group who continued to elaborate that Nigeria will be making a grave error if it joins America in an “unholy marriage” to fight “our men”.
