#AceWorldNews – NIGERIA – May 09 – Saudi Arabia’s top cleric has condemned Nigeria’s Boko Harem and its kidnapping of 200 school girls, saying the militant Islamic group is “set up to smear Islam.” Sheikh Abdulaziz Al al-Sheikh said the radical movement, which wants to create a pure Islamic state in Nigeria, was “misguided”.

His comments come as religious leaders in the Muslim world, who often do not comment on militant violence condemned Boko Harem’s leader Abubaker Shekau, for saying that Allah had told him to sell the kidnapped girls as forced brides.

Boko Harem kidnapped 270 girls from a secondary school on April 14, fifty have since escaped.
