NSCDC Discovers ‘”Spiritual Book” Used By Boko Haram For Indoctrination

A Nigerian official said on Sunday that his agency had discovered a “spiritual book” suspected to be used by the Boko Haram to indoctrinate their victims.

The Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, in Borno, Ibrahim Abdullahi, disclosed this in Maiduguri in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

Mr. Abdullahi said that the book, written in Arabic, was discovered during an operation by the corps officials at an abandoned house in Dikwa Local Government Area of the state.

“It is sad that many innocent souls had been dragged into submitting to Boko Haram through spiritual indoctrination,” he said.

“The book, named ‘Guduma’, was used by the insurgents as a powerful charm to indoctrinate followers into submitting to the dictates of leaders of the sect.

“Our findings revealed that the book was also used in deceiving victims and members of the sect into believing that it could make them invisible and also offer protection against bullet shots and bombs.
“The spiritual book was abandoned by ‘Boko Haram’ after the takeover of Dikwa from the insurgents, two years ago,” he said.

Nigerian troops have retaken several territory initially captured by the terrorists whose activities have caused the death of over 20,000 people since 2009.
