Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau has told Nigerian President Goodluck Johnson the Islamist militants would be prepared to swop half of the kidnapped schoolgirls for a World Cup sticker of Belgium holding midfield player Axel Witsel
Shekau told Johnson the militants had got nearly all the important Panini 2014 World Cup stickers but were still short of the Zenit St.Petersburg utility player ‘and possibly one of the Costa Rican reserve goalkeepers’.
But Interior Minister Abba Moro rejected the deal, telling the BBC that the Belgian midfielder was one of the hardest World Cup stickers to find and was worth at least 200 of the kidnapped school girls.
President Johnson said Boko Haram had overestimated the importance of the schoolgirls to the Nigerian government and accused the militant leader of ‘living in cloud cuckoo land’.
Shekau said some of the captured schoolgirls had been Utd fans on arriving at the miltant's camp but had since converted to City and become ‘sisters of the Etihad’
The jihadist insisted that teaching the offside rule to children was forbidden and the girls should get married instead.
The militants warned the English Premier League that Pelligrini was the only God who should be worshipped and YaYa Tourre was the only messenger.
The World Cup kicks off in Brazil on 12th June but Belgium’s first match is not until 17th.
If they beat Algeria in their opening match MOTD's John Motosn thinks the Witsel Panini sticker could ‘arguably’ be worth far more than 200 Nigerian schoolchildren.
However, if they were to lose the opening match fellow BBC pundit Gary Lineker says the militants would be lucky to get a half eaten Belgium waffle for the terrified youngsters.
