Great report, BBC. We've been looking into the group as well, and they had a bit of a different background story than we expected.

The BH have artillery any modern army would be proud of, they have APC's and numerous Toyota 4x4 land cruisers, new shape! Many with mounted MG's mean while a South African arms supplier refused to supply the Nigerian army with new weapons and confiscated funds over the value of $11 million, over 2 occasions, backed by American governments agreement in the non sale due to Nigeria's military's bad human right record, recently militants in the delta region were given 7 heavily armed war patrol boats from Norway, and a Russian Millitary plane full of french owned ammunition and weapons was discovered en route to Niger Republic after it had to make an emergency landing in Kano due to technical difficulties, what I smell is beyond Bullshit!

So they claim these people knew him well, but then they discredit themselves by not revealing their identity? This means you could pretty much get anyone to say anything, blur their face and present it as the "truth" to the world.

Certainly, someone somewhere in Nigeria knows where's this fool hiding place. His time is well up. There are many hungry Nile croc's waiting for a brutal morsel that fits his beast image. .
