Former Chief Justice Uwais’ Son Joins Terrorist Group ISIS In Iraq.
Former chief justice of Nigeria Muhammadu Uwais’s son has apparently gone to the Middle East and joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) in what represents a big coup for the terrorists. In what is now a growing trend, middle class Muslims from affluent families from all over the world are abandoning lucrative careers to go and fight for jihadist groups.
Hundreds of European Muslims have left good jobs to join Isis in Syria, Iraq and Libya and now they have started attracting Nigerian youngsters too. Apparently, the son of Justice Uwais (79) who served as the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria from 1995 until 2006, is now an active combatant with ISIS. He left Nigeria a few days back for Syria, with his two wives and children to fight alongside the Isis terrorists who presently control large territories in Iraq, Syria and Libya.
This is the second time a member of a Nigerian elitist family will be linked to a foreign terrorist group. On December 25 2009, the notorious underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, tried to blow up an aircraft en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan on the instructions of Al-Qaeda, who he had joined.
