The Boko Haram terrorist group that has abducted nearly 300 Nigerian girls is reportedly sponsored by the same international political mafia that orchestrates the ongoing crisis in Ukraine and the Arab world, a political analyst says.
In an article posted on Press TV’s website, Gordon Duff referred to recent revelations, including a secret FBI memo, about the 2012 killing of the US ambassador in the Libyan city of Benghazi and the kidnapping of the Nigerian girls.
“Investigations of both attacks, including a recent secret FBI memo from last week, indicate that the ‘terrorists’ were, in actuality, working in direct coordination, not just with domestic political enemies but, on a broader scale, the same powerful international political organization, one involved in these attacks and others, Libya, Egypt, Syria and the Ukraine,” Duff wrote.
It is learned that the two operations in Nigeria and Libya as well as the takeover of the Ukrainian government by right wing extremists and gas attacks inside Syria are funded by billions of dollars, Euros and pounds, gold and diamonds stolen from former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s fortune, the analyst pointed out.
Based on the intelligence reports, the Gaddafi fortune has been funneled to Paris and kept in three warehouses under the supervision of French and Israeli intelligence services to finance terrorists, assassins and members of the mainstream media, he noted.
The article also cited a Persian Gulf state intelligence service as saying that billions of dollars of Ghaddafi’s wealth as well as his stockpile of chemical and advanced weapons have been gradually transferred from France to Poland, Ukraine, Africa, Turkey and the US.
On April 14, the Boko Haram abducted 276 students from their secondary school in the northeastern town of Chibok, later threatening to “sell” the girls.
Boko Haram – whose name means “Western education is forbidden” – says its goal is to overthrow the Nigerian government.
The Takfiri group has been responsible for a number of deadly gun and bomb attacks in various parts of Nigeria since 2009.
