The Nigerian army has alerted of the emergence of another deadly Islamic sect known as “Hakika Islamic”. It said the group has strange doctrines similar to that of the Boko Haram.
The sect, according to the army, is headed by one Yahaya Ibrahim, and is currently recruiting young men and women.
It disclosed that Hakika Islamist has operational bases around Ngwurore, in Yola South local government area of Adamawa State, and Toto local government area of Nasarawa State.
Giving more insight into the activities of the sect, Nigerian Army said the group has controversial doctrines ranging from non-adherence to five days prayers to non-observance of Ramadan fasting, promotion of fornication, adultery, among others.
The sect, which is said to have been in existence for some time now, according to Daily Sun sources, was beginning to give army authorities fighting the counter insurgency war in the northeast part of the country a big concern.
When contacted, the Director Defence Information, Brigadier-General John Agim, confirmed the report said the military was already on top of the situation.
