|Confusion Over 'death' Of Abu Qaqa 11 by Ddaji(m): 9:39am On Apr 17, 2012|
There was confusion yesterday over the slain Boko Haram spokesman Muhammed Auwal commonly called Abul Qaqa II who was reported to have been killed in Kaduna last week.
Some newspapers reported Sunday that Abul Qaqa II was killed by members of his own sect on suspicion he was trying to dump the struggle.
The report, quoting security sources, said he hailed from Kontagora in Niger State and that he was the son of 91-year old Mallam Lawal Na Alhaji Goma. His killers were said to have called the father and informed him about his son’s death.
Daily Trust investigation in Kontagora led to the house of one Mallam Lawal Na Alhaji Goma who has a son called Muhammed Auwal who resides in Kaduna.
But Mohammed Auwal in an interview with Daily Trust on phone yesterday refuted media reports that he was killed, saying he has never been a member of Boko Haram sect and that he is still alive.
Auwal said all that he knew was that last Saturday as he was coming out from Kasuwan Yan-Gwari in Rigasa area of Kaduna metropolis at about 5:30 pm with one of the persons working in his tailoring shop in the area, mobile policemen whisked him away in their patrol vehicle.
He said he was arrested when he crossed the road to the other side of the road while pointing a hand at his worker to remain where he was till he came back. That action, according to him, made the policemen enforcing the restriction order on motorcycles movement to assume he (Auwal) was talking to some motorcyclists to run away and so he was arrested but after an interrogation for about an hour or so he was asked to go.
He said his name is Abubakar Lawal not Mohammad Auwal, because he had stopped bearing Mohammed Auwal since 1999 when he left school.
Auwal said he was dumb founded when he learnt that he was associated with Boko Haram and not even as an ordinary member but as part of the leadership of the sect, saying he was still wondering how the information came about.
Meanwhile, when his father, who identified himself as Mallam Lawal Na Alhaji Goma, was contacted in Kontagora, said he also bears Mohammad Auwal, adding that when his son Abubakar was enrolled into school he was often addressed with his surname, Mohammad Auwal.
The 91-year old father of Mohammed Auwal told Daily Trust that his son who is now 31 years old had been with him throughout his life until last year when he had relocated to Kaduna to establish a tailoring business under the care of his elder brother, Nasiru, who is a civil servant.
According to him, they got the information that his son was arrested by the police in Kadauna through Nasiru and shortly after 8 pm or thereabout on that fateful Saturday, same Nasiru called back telling them that his younger brother (Mohammad Auwal) was released.
The father also said that when he heard of the arrest of his son, he assumed it was the handiwork of one person with whom his son had stayed briefly with when he first relocated to Kaduna but parted ways following a misunderstanding.
He said he was surprised to also learn from the neighborhood the following morning that his son was killed for attempting to denounce his membership of Boko Haram, noting that his son had never gone outside Kontagora in search of Islamic knowledge let alone be exposed outside.
He said his son would never be a member of any group that would not be accepted by his family, because of the type of training he gave to all his children.
But security officials were not responding to enquiries last night about the reported death of Abul Qaqa.
The true identity of the Boko Haram spokesman has not been settled between security officials and the sect members themselves.
On January 31, security officials announced they arrested the sect’s spokesman Abul Qaqa, but the sect said the next day that the man arrested was Abu Darda.
Since then the man who claimed to be Abu Qaqa continued to hold interviews with newsmen in Maiduguri via phone conference.
However, Abul Qaqa has not been heard of in the last two weeks.source:www.dailytrust.com

When the first Abu Quaqa was arrested, BH denied it initially but later agreed so this is not a new thing. Time will tell.
