New Extremist Sect Emerges In Kebbi, Preaches Doctrines Similar To Boko Haram

A religious sect identified as “Yanlabaiku, which preaches doctrines similar to those of Boko Haram is currently in its infancy with 100 members at its base in Gwadangwaji, near Birnin Kebbi, the capital of Kebbi state.

While no violence has been associated with the activities of the group, it is reported to be against western education and is currently holding public preaching, meetings and processions to draw more converts to their cause.

According to the newspaper, members of the group are equally called “Yanlokoloko”, said to be one of the names of one of its leaders, Ismaila Lokoloko, who is assisted by one Bala Amadu. It was gathered that the group is opposed to one of the major teachings of the Islamic religion – the five daily prayers – as it allegedly preaches against offering them as Islam dictates.

With a slogan that identifies them as putting their belief in their Sheikh above God, Yanlokoloko are said to willingly surrender their wives to spend the night with their important visitors, especially scholars from the group.
