There are two organizations of people in the news today whose level of evil staggers the imagination. ISIS in Syria and Iraq is known for its beheadings, crucifixions, and massacres of the innocent. Boko Haram in Nigeria is known for kidnapping Christian school girls and using them for sex slaves, as well as for its massacres of the innocent. Now these two groups have joined forces.
Boko Haram has sworn allegiance to ISIS and the Caliphate that it is proclaiming. This gives ISIS an inroad into Africa, making it more of a universal Caliphate. And it gives Boko Haram a greater status as part of that Caliphate.
Boko Haram, the Nigeria-based Islamist terror group, has pledged allegiance to ISIS, according to an audio message purported to be from Boko Haram’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.
