An Egyptian Television has released an intercepted telephone conversation which has confirmed that Turkey is clearly a terrorist state with a broad reach. It reports that Turkey is the supplier of weapons to the deadly Islamist terrorist group, Boko haram, which has waged a terror war for ten years in Nigeria.
The report further said that without doubt President recep Erdogan, and his party are transferring weapons from Turkey to -this is a shock, to where you may ask- to Nigeria; to whom? -to the Boko Haram organisation.
It has been a very disturbing speculation among Nigerians, the government officials as where the deadly Islamic terror group is getting their supply of sophiscated weapons from. Some finger have been secretly pointing at Saudi Arabia due to the fact that the Muslim group that make up the Islamic terror group is known to be of Sunni, of which Saudi Arabia is regarded as Sunni Muslim country.
Some speculations had it that Nigerian politicians are behind the group, and different political parties have pointed fingers at each other since the last 8 years since this terror group has been carrying out their attacks.
It is estimated that at least Boko Haram has killed over 11,000 Nigerians, mostly women, children and a good number of officers of the Nigerian security forces. Also, the group has been collecting huge ransoms through kidnapping of school children, and villagers. Among these kidnappings are the widely publicised one, the Chibok school girls. While some of these girls have been released, some are still in their custody for several years now.
This leaked telephone conversation was made in 2014/15, which was the year the group was most deadly and carried out most of their horrendous suicide attacks within this period.
When the audio was leaked, it didn’t attract much attention due to the fact that the United States, and other super powers did not see President Recep Erdogan as one who is interested in Islamist politics other than in his own nation.
But recently, the leader of ISIS, Khalif El-Baghdadi was killed, or apparently blew himself up, when the United States special operation forces closed down on him just three miles away from Turkish border. Something that shocked some analysts, who questioned how could such a man be so closed to the Turkey without being detected.
Political and Intelligence analsyt, Mr Raymond Ibrahim, said that certain issues have revealed that President Erdogan is involved with ISIS and has now been linked to such a deadly terror group, Boko Haram. He also said that the international observaers have noticed that weapons used by Boko haram are very sophiscated. He said that attacks by Boko Haram has the same pattern as that of ISIS, like chooping off heads of their captives, and attack targetting Christians women, school children. Also, mentioned was made of Fulani tribesmen, who are largely normadic and primitive in their lifestyle but are always armed with sophiscated weaponry.
Mr Raymond said that the benefit of this to Erdogan is that he is a strong ally of Muslim brotherhood, and seems to believe that spread of Islamist groups will overhtrow more secular states.
He said that President Buhari is also a Fulani Muslim, who has been accused of being complacent to these attacks by Boko haram and could as well been an ally of Turkey in these attacks, which is aimed at Islamising the entire country, Nigeria.
