The Commandant of the NSCDC in the state,
Ibrahim Abdullahi, disclosed this in Maiduguri in an
interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.
Abdullahi said the book, written in Arabic, was
discovered during an operation by operatives of the
command at an abandoned house in Dikwa Local
Government Area of the state.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in
Borno State on Sunday said it had discovered a
“spiritual book” suspected to be used by Boko
Haram to hypnotize their victims.

The Commandant of the NSCDC in the state,
Ibrahim Abdullahi, disclosed this in Maiduguri in an
interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.
Abdullahi said the book, written in Arabic, was
discovered during an operation by operatives of the
command at an abandoned house in Dikwa Local
Government Area of the state.

He said: “It is sad that many innocent souls had
been dragged into submitting to Boko Haram
through spiritual indoctrination.
“The book, named: ‘Guduma,’ was used by the
insurgents as a powerful charm to indoctrinate
followers into submitting to the dictates of leaders
of the sect.

“Our findings revealed that the book was also used
in deceiving victims and members of the sect into
believing that it could make them invisible and also
offer protection against bullet shots and bombs.
“The spiritual book was abandoned by Boko Haram
after the takeover of Dikwa from the insurgents,
two years ago.”
