Boko Haram leader pledges his allegiance to IS

Postby Malachite » Sat Mar 07, 2015 9:10 pm

Nigeria's Boko Haram insurgents have pledged their allegiance to the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria, according to an audio message published Saturday on Boko Haram's Twitter account.

In the recording, a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abu Bakr Shekau offers the group's support and says the militants will "hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity."

The statement could not be immediately verified by The WorldPost. The SITE intelligence group, which monitors extremist websites, said Saturday that the recording was posted to the Nigerian group's social media accounts.

‎Nigerian government spokesman Mike Omeri told Reuters that the audio message confirmed the government's previous concerns about Boko Haram's international ties. "It's why we were appealing to the international community ... Hopefully the world will wake up to the disaster unfolding here," he said.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/0 ... 23414.html
How long before they join forces ? People have been saying for quite a long time that their plan is to rejoin at some point. But there's still chad, Egypt and Saudi Arabia on their way. I don't think that's even possible.
