Mujahideen attack Nigerian troops on their way to Mali

Publication time: 22 January 2013, 13:30

According to Reuters, Nigerian Mujahideen of Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina have claimed responsibility for the attack on Nigerian troops on their way to the war against Islamic Azawad.

Their statement was published on Jan. 21 by a Nigerian newspaper, Desert Herald, which, according to Reuters, often publishes Mujahideen statements.

As compared to Russia, the civilized country of Nigeria does not proclaim "extremist websites" for publishing Mujahideen statements, does not jam such sites with powerful DDoS attacks and does not bang with a shoe from anger on the podium of the UN Security Council demanding to ban such a website worldwide.

 

The full text of the statement from the Mujahideen of Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan (JAMBS) can be read at Desert Herald.

 Reuters censored a cited part of the statement in its report. The uncensored part in Desert Herald reads:

"We are equipped and waiting for any slightest attempt of Nigerian army, moving towards the Islamic empire of Mali. 

 

And we are warning the African countries to confiscate their effort for helping western countries in fighting against Islam and Muslim, if not we are sternly assuring them, particularly Nigerian government to be prepare and be at utmost ready for facing difficulties from JAMBS any where any time, may Allah help us..."

 

The statement was signed by the Islamic organization of Abu Usamatal Ansary.

Reuters reports that Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina was branded by England as a "terrorist organization", and because of this, it is highly respected in the Muslim World.

On January 19, at 6 am, the Mujahideen of Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina attacked in central Nigeria, in the state of Kogi, a column of Nigerian troops heading towards north in Mali, killing 2 Nigerian army officers and wounding 8 enemy elements. Military vehicles were blown up. No casualties present among the Mujahideen.

 

Mujahideen do not refute these official figures and do not consider them understated. Nigeria is not Russia.

Reuters writes that the Mujahideen of Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina captured last month a Frenchman for France's banning Muslim women to wear the hijab, as well as for preparation (at the time, it was only preparation) for an armed attack on Mali.

In last November, Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina attacked at dawn a police headquarters in the Nigerian capital and freed hundreds of Muslim hostages.

 

Reuters reports that in the west, Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina is believed to be an offshoot of Boko Haram. However Jama'atu Ansarul Muslimina places greater emphasis on the global jihad rather than on local political issues.
