March 8, 2015 – ISIS Leader Baghdadi Says Group Working With Boko Haram In Nigeria In New Video

The islamic State of Iraq and Syria has now expanded its empire to a part of Nigeria, with the pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the spiritual head, by under pressure, Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau

An audio recording believed to be from Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau said the jihadists, who have been waging a six-year military campaign in northern Nigeria, were merging with ISIS.

A translation of the Arabic broadcast said: ‘We announce our allegiance to the Caliph… and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity.’

The recording identified ‘the Caliph’ as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS and self-proclaimed caliph of the Muslim world.

The message means that ISIS now has a foothold in Nigeria, as well as controlling swathes of Iraq and Syria and parts of Egypt and Libya.

Baghdadi has already accepted pledges of allegiance from other jihadist groups in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan and north Africa as he seeks to expand their reign of terror.

    Ok, now, this is becoming unclear – thought the shekau or whatever the bastard’s called was dead or was that just some form of propaganda? Don’t know what to believe anymore!

    God has prepared a small David that will wipe you stupid Goliath. Is a matter of time! Dnt force people to join your faith, rather convince them. I am sure that there are millions of good moslems out there. One day, what happened to Saul in Acts 9 on his way to Damascus will catch up with you. By then, your name will change from Abu Bakr to Thomas or Anthony.

    It is quite clear over-indulgence in everything one has passion for in life has its negative effect subsequently. When the former pedophile Governor of Zamfara State, Sani Yerima, now a Senator; was at the forefront of declaration of the entire north a Sharia territory, little did he know he was romancing a delicate religious adventure which would in future snowball into an uncontrolable estremist proportion. Today, the entire north of Nigeria is under siege from the very people Yerima led to the failed Sharia practices who, now sought to enforce the sharia practices to its effective doctrinal conclusion. I have always prayed God spared Nigeria of the infiltrations of the ISIS operating effectively in Iraq and Syria, now with its influence in the entire Gulf Regions and North African countries of Egypt and Libya. Here we are today with the sloppiness of Ebele Jonathan, the Boko Haram have grown in international influence and have caught the attentions of ISIS for a support. ISIS are an extremist organisation with enormous resourses that include the control of of oil field under their sleeve.

    Former Governor Sani Yerima and his co-northern governors who declared sharia in the past without thinking of its sustainability should be held responsible for what Nigeria is going through today in the hands of Boko Haram. The history of Sharia practices as experienced in Afganistan, Pakistan and hosts of other islamic states around the world is replete and well documented and, are all tainted with repressive adherence that tend to adopt violence and crude human right abuses that include killings as we witness Boko Haram do today in Nigeria in order to enforce compliance. Countries that have adopted Sharia around the world with all the resources of the state under their control are unable to maintain sanity under the sharia rules and equally sustain prosperity of its people with the draconian sharia regulations. Governor Sani Yerima and his colleague governors should have known the resouces of their various states were as meager as could only create more poverty among the youth than could lift them out of it. The more than 10 million Boko Haram extremists followers which Sherkau boast of today are the disgruntled youth Yerima and his colleagues should have cared to train and become self reliant, rather than sought to clamp down under sharia rule with no significant internally generated income or any meaningful resourses from within the states to augment the monthly stipends from Abuja. It is known moderate sharia practices in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait etc. is made possible for the amount of money pumped into making everyone feels comfortable under the rule and, not the kind of poverty sriken society of northern Nigeria, hence the northern Nigeria sharia backfired into Boko Haram extremism as has happened in Afganistan and in parts of Pakistan.

    Boko Haram’s aim today with all true purpose and intention is not to Islamise the entire Nigeria because they know it could only take a whole lifetime fight to achieve that but, see the rest of Nigeria particularly the natural resourses endowed of the south as the nerve center which the core North derives its strength and willpower to resist the enforcement of their doctrine therefore, the entire territory of Nigeria becomes a target in order to soften the Nigerian State’s resolve and ease their struggle to create an Islamic Caliphate in the North, afterall ISIS is not seeking to anex the entire Iraq and Syria. Their aim is to carve out a territory within an already established States they intend calling an Islamic Caliphate and, that’s exactly what Boko Haram is seeking to do in North Eastern Nigeria. Invariably, the northern leaders have shot themselves in the foot and invited that which is ravaging the north today and further creating more poverty within already inpoverished society. Nigeria is not in an open war with any country but looses its citizens in the 100s on a daily basis with human and economic activities brought to a total halt in some parts of the north and, millions are internally and externally displaced and have to rely on humanitarian support to survive. Nigeria has also not been lucky to contend with a weak leadership of Jonathan’s calibre under whose watch Boko Haram grew into a formidable extremist force. Jonathan’s tenure if renewed in the next elections will spell doom for Nigeria as a unified state.
