ISIS Accepts Boko Haram’s Pledge Of Allegiance

The jihadist group, ISIS, has accepted a pledge of allegiance from its Nigerian counterpart, Boko Haram. In an audio message that has yet to be verified, a man who claimed to be the spokesperson for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS, said the group’s aim of establishing a caliphate has now been expanded to West Africa, the BBC reported.
The move followed a pledge of allegiance by Boko Haram to ISIS last week, as the Nigerian militant group faced increased military onslaught in recent weeks. In an earlier audio, the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, said his group was reaching out to ISIS based on divine provisions in the Holy Quran, and as directed by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad.
