Boko Haram Splits: Splinter Group Vows To Restore Dignity To Islam

A splinter group has emerged within the radical sect, Boko Haram. The new Islamist Militant group named Ansaru, is set to restore dignity to Islam by eliminating Boko Haram from the society.

In a statement circulated in Kano, Ansaru gave its full name as “Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan,” meaning Vanguards for the Protection of Muslims in Black Africa. Its motto is “Jihad Fi Sabilillah,” meaning it is fighting and sacrificing for Allah’s cause. The statement was signed by one Abu Usamata Al’Ansari, who claimed to be its leader.

The group described Boko Haram’s style of operations as inhuman to the Muslim Ummah, and vowed to restore dignity and sanity to “the lost dignity of Muslims in black Africa” and to bring back the dignity of Islam in Nigeria and the Sokoto Caliphate, founded by Othman Dan Fodio in 1804, which spread across Niger Republic, Cameroon and some West African countries.

According to the statement, “For the first time, we are glad to announce to the public the formation of this group that has genuine basis. We will have dispassionate look into everything, to encourage what is good and see to its spread and to discourage evil and try to eliminate it.”

Ansaru’s logo shows the Qur’an, with a gun on both sides; attached to the guns are black flags with the inscription, “There is no deity but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger”.
