The Joint Task Force (JTF) in Maiduguri yesterday distributed thousands of audio tapes of Islamic messages criticising the Boko Haram (western education is sin).
The tapes, which showed Quranic verses denouncing the ideology of Boko Haram, were distributed free of charge to residents.
The distributed materials were mainly from the preaching of the slain Muslim cleric, Sheik Mohammed Ja’afar.
The task force men were seen distributing the tapes and CDs at popular places, including the Ramat Square, Baga Road Central Mosque, Eid-el- Fitri praying grounds, Shehu’s palace, Maiduguri- Kano road, Borno Central garage and around the post office.
Many people were seen struggling to get the tapes aimed at weakening the influence of the Boko Haram ideology.
