Part of the letter read: “I am directed to connect security report from own high command and to inform you that information received that an Islamic Sect known as “Hakika” under the leadership of one Yahaya Ibrahim has emerged around Ngwurore in Yola South LGA of Adamawa State and Toto LGA of Nasarawa state.
“It was gathered that the group is currently on recruitment drive with series of controversial doctrines from non-adherence to 5 days prayers to non-observance of Ramadan fasting, promotion of fornication and adultery among others.”
“In view of the above, I am directed to request you disseminate this information to your men and monitor the activities of the newly formed Sect in your Area of Responsibility accordingly.”
