The 'White Widow' behind the Kenyan mall massacre was in Nigeria

According to a report by UK Daily Mirror, Samantha Lewthwaite, the British woman known as the “White Widow” accused of masterminding the Kenyan shopping mall massacre that left 68 people dead and over 170 injured was in Nigeria sometime ago and evaded detection. 

If White Widow Samantha Lewthwaite is on the run she will be hard to catch. If  Lewthwaite were to be on the run in Kenya, Nigeria or Somalia, it would be a easier to evade detection than in Europe. She would be wearing a veil, and sensitivities about searching Muslim women would be observed so she could easily slip through difficult checkpoints.
In Nigeria, where police forces are notoriously corrupt, there were reports she was almost caught a while ago, but she bribed her way out of trouble. Extremist communities such as al-Shabaab are tight-knit in these countries, making it difficult to recruit agents to penetrate them and trace her.
And Lewthwaite may hold a great deal of power as a special kind of jihadist, having proved her worth in previous attacks. As a white convert mum and widow of a 7/7 bomber, she would be invaluable propaganda and would command huge loyalty. Also, the austere nature of her adopted culture means she would rarely go out, so there would be few opportunities to follow her. Bounties have failed to nail jihadists as money has no value to individuals loyal to the cause.

I'm not surprised at all - anything is possible in Nigeria. You can always bribe yourself out of trouble

God will catch her

Mich said...

And just when you thought Nigeria wasn't in any way linked to the Wastegate attack,this news comes up.
See how they portrayed the Nigerain police,with so much disgust.
Imagine the good it would have done to Nigeria as a whole if that bloody Samantha was caught by the Nigerian police but no,they prefer to he given peanuts as bribes and allow a terrorist slip through their hands.
I just feel sorry for the many Nigerians that would be victims of a terror attack if it were to happen there,there's no way that lady would have come into Nigeria without planning something deadly.
The security opperatives have failed woefully,really sad what those lot do.

I even heard she is related to senator Yerima! LOL! Camera caught two of them 2geda. Check it out!

Linda get the facts right, the report did not say she came to Nigeria,it only said if she came to Nigeria,Kenya... She wouldn't be detected because of how the laws in these countries respect muslim rights, and whoever wrote that report is just not being fair in their judgements of Nigeria's security agencies, not withstanding the fact that there are few "bad eggs" among them, even the UK and America is not immune to these things.
Terrorism is a global problem.

The UK has a funny way of blaming other countries for their misfortune. Since they cannot blame it on "descent" this time around, blaming it on the Nigerian police force is very convenient.
Globalization has made terrorism a world-wide problem. Stop passing the buck!!! We need all hands on deck.

Instead of living in denial, we should stop rejecting honest investigations of foreign reports. I'm sure Nigeria is more enmeshed in terrorism than we want to even know. The north especially must be a haven of sort considering nigeria is the largest african country. I just hope they get fished out quicker.

Hmm....Here in SA, it was also reported tht her mother is a south african citizen whereas her father British. She lived briefly in Pretoria and her neighbours were interviewd; they said she lived a quiet life and hardly social; always in a hurry to even say hello. Later obtained a FAKE SA passport and varnished.. Lesson - Pls get aquainted with those around you and/or your home and be watchful of unusual/abnormal occurences; know when to call the cops.

No one is roping nigeria into anything. The reason. Y they can say something like that abt the police is because its true. Nigerian is taking one step forward and 10 steps backward. I won't be surprised if she is in nigeria at all. Since the cOuntry its self hsnt done anything to stop the shameless murder of ove 500 people. So people stop making ascuses and start making a change.
