Boko Haram militant group which is based in West Africa last week announced its support to the Islamic States and accepting Abu Bakar Albaghdadi as their Khalifa (caliphate).
The announcement of the allegiance of Jama’at Ahl al-Sunnah Lil Dawa Wal Jihad which is commonly known as Boko Haram was made by its leader Abu Bakar Shekau, states the Site Intel Group which collects news and information about insurgent groups.
Claiming of establishing an Islamic government in Nigeria Jama’at Ahl al-Sunnah Lil Dawa Wal Jihad or Boko Haram announced its existence in 2002 but their actual bloodshed began in 2009 in which they have killed around 13, 000 people so far.
According to a report only in 2014 the group has killed 6,000 people in separate attacks.
About two months before the terrorist group in a single attack killed at least 2, 000 people and burned their villages in northern Nigeria.
The group last year kidnapped more than 200 school girls from Borno state of Nigeria and later announced that the girls were married to their fighters.
Observers believe now that ISIS has support in West Africa and looking at the announcement of Khurasan, ISIS may announce a province (Walayat) in West Africa with Abu Bakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram as its Governor (Wali) leader.
