Boko Haram's Abubakar Shekau Makes World's Top 100 Most Influential Person


Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Nigerian militant Islamist group Boko Haram has been named one of the world’s most influential people by TIME Magazine.
In the article, the Boko Haram spokes person was described as 'the scourge of Africa'.
President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili and bestselling author, Chimamanda Adichie are other Nigerians who made it to the list.
Read Abubakar Shekau’s profile as written on TIME’s website below:

Abubakar Shekau – Scourge of Africa (by General Carter Ham (U.S. Army, retired)

Most Americans do not yet recognize his name, but the citizens of Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country, know Abubakar Shekau all too well: he is the most violent killer their country has ever seen. Shekau took over the terrorist organization Boko Haram in 2009 after the group had been weakened by Nigerian government forces.
Shekau, who is believed to be in his 30s, began to stage increasingly daring kidnapping and killing raids on schools, churches and mosques thought by Boko Haram to be violating their interpretation of Islam. The taking of over 200 schoolgirls in April 2014 brought Boko Haram into the international spotlight.

By most accounts, Boko Haram has killed more than 10,000 people and is spreading into neighboring countries. Shekau’s latest action may finally summon a U.S. response: he has publicly aligned his group with ISIS, the terrorist group that holds territory in Syria and Iraq and has expanded its reach into Yemen and Libya.
