Grandson of Nigerian-born UK immigrant featured in ISIS video
| January 05, 2016

A Nigerian-born UK immigrant has identified the young boy featured in a recent ISIS video as his grandson. The video was released through ISIS channels on Jan. 3 and showed a group of ISIS militants executing five supposed British spies. In the video, the young boy can be heard calling for slaughter in Allah’s name. He says,  “We are going to go kill the kafir (non-believers) over there.”

Sunday Dare, the boy's grandfather, is a Christian who migrated from Nigeria to the UK. His daughter, Grace “Khadijah” Dare was radicalized while at university in London and joined the Islamic State in 2012. She had praised the beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, and said she wanted to be the first woman to behead a hostage.

Mr Dare told Channel 4 news in the UK, “He’s my grandson. I can’t disown him. He’s my grandson. I know him very well.”

The boy was born in 2010 and has been named by some news outlets. The British press has also nicknamed him “Jihadi Junior.” He has also been seen on social media in photos his mother posted of him holding an AK-47.

His grandfather said the Islamic State is “just using a small boy. He doesn’t know anything. He’s a small boy. They are just using him as a shield.”  He also said that his grandson he doesn’t like it over there with the Islamic State.
