Suspect in the brutal London terrorist attack is alleged to be Nigerian
| May 23, 2013
One of the two men who butchered a British soldier in broad daylight on a street in London, near an army barracks, is suspected to be a Nigerian. One of the two men who carried out the attack is alleged to be a 20-year old British Nigerian. Update: The Press Association news agency is reporting that both men are believed to be British with Nigerian connections - The suspect has been named on internet forums as Michael Adebolajo. It is reported that he is British but of Nigerian descent and aged 28 years. He was filmed by a bystander with his hands covered in blood, holding a bloodied knife and saying, "We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. "I apologize that women had to witness that, but in our lands our women have to see the same thing. You people will never be safe. Remove your government. They don't care about you." He also said, "We must fight them as they fight us. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth." Eyewinesses say he and another man ran over the victim with a car, pounced on him in broad daylight on a busy street, stabbed him and then tried to behead him. Witnesses said they shouted "Allah Akbar" (God is great) in Arabic while stabbing the victim. After killing the man, they made no attempt to escape and even encouraged people to take pictures of them and the victim. In the video, one of the men said, "You think politicians are going to die? No, it's going to be the average guy, like you and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so you can all live in peace". The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, suggested that the attack is a terrorist attack saying, "I am afraid it is overwhelmingly likely now to be a terrorist attack, the kind the city has seen before.". He also added that "it would be wrong to blame the killing on either Islam or British foreign policy. The fault lies wholly and exclusively in the warped and deluded mindset of the people that did it." The Muslim Council of Britain also said the murder was "a truly barbaric act that has no basis in Islam and we condemn this unreservedly". The last major terrorist attack in London was In July 2005, when four young Islamists set off suicide bombs on London's public transportation, killed 52 people and wounded hundreds. The two suspects, were shot by police, while they were trying to arrest them, and were taken into custody. British Prime Minister, David Cameron, cut short his visit to France and returned to London.

This guy is British. That he bears a Nigerian name is immaterial.
