Boko Haram is the 7th Richest Terrorist Group in the World, See their Worth
Except for record purpose, it is never in doubt that Boko Haram is indeed a very rich organization. Richness they employ in killing, maiming and destroying innocent citizens and their properties.
The group whose activities have killed thousands of people in the country over the past few years has been ranked as the 7th wealthiest terrorist organization in the world.
The report of the ranking published by The Richest, says Boko Haram is worth $70million, which is the sum the by the group made between 2006 and 2011 from their numerous kidnappings and the subsequent ransoms procured.
The report said:
“The Boko Haram are a Nigerian terrorist group who fight to overthrow the Nigerian government in order to implement an Islamist regime. They are ranked in 7th position of the richest terror gangs in the world.
They have bombed UN headquarters and most recently abducted over 200 Nigerian school girls in defence of their namesake, “Western Education is Sin”. “Since they’ve remained off the radar since their recent attacks, it’s unclear just how much money they make from their numerous kidnappings and the subsequent ransoms they procure.
“It has been determined, however, that between 2006-2011, they collected over $70 million. Apart from these monies, they get millions of dollars from their various sponsors within and outside Nigeria.”
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a Jihadist militant group, is adjudged the richest terrorist group till date, with an estimated sum of $2 billion, gathered from looted weapons and bank robberies.
The second richest terrorist group is Irish Republican Army (IRA), a prominent professional money laundering organisation in Europe with over $450 million.
The third richest, the Taliban of Afghanistan rakes in an estimated sum of $400 million, annually from expansive drug trade, human trafficking, extortion, as well as a large amount of donations from foreign organisations that support their ill-gotten empire.
Al-Qaeda, which is the fourth richest, is one of the largest and deadliest terrorist groups, founded by Osama Bin Laden. The group realises over $100million in a year.
The Marxist guerrilla group, Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia-Peoples Army (FARC), known for numerous kidnappings, assassinations and bombings, which they have executed on Columbian citizens, in the name of anti-imperialism rakes in an estimated sum of $80-$350 million, every year is the fifth richest.
Just ahead Boko Haram is Lashkar-e-Tayyiba from Pakistan, renowned for wreaking havoc, raging war and killing civilians, with $100 million a year.
