EXposed:ISIS Members Use Guns And Explosives As Dowries For Nigerian Brides

Physinews Reports: Islamic State group marriage contracts
unearthed by pro-government forces battling
the group in Libya reveal that the jihadists
offered their brides unusual dowries: machine
guns and explosive belts.

Forces allied with the country’s unity
government discovered the archives as they
searched buildings seized during their months-
long battle to oust IS from its coastal bastion of

The documents belonged to the jihadists’
“Judicial and Complaints Department”.

Published on pro-government forces’ Facebook
pages, they include marriage contracts and
divorce rulings without any real name or
personal information.

In one example from November 31, 2015, Abu
Mansour, a Tunisian born in 1977, married a
Nigerian called Miriam, in the presence of
Sudanese and Malian witnesses.
In contrast to Islamic norms, Abu Mansour did
not pay a dowry but vowed to pay
compensation in the event of his death or the
marriage being dissolved — in the form of an
explosive belt.

Fatima, from Nigeria, was promised a
Kalashnikov assault rifle in case of divorce or if
her husband, Malian Abu Said, died.

IS jihadists took over Sirte in June 2015 and
imposed a reign of terror including executions in
public squares.

They patrolled the streets in 4x4s to ensure
that men were observing prayer times and
women were not venturing out alone.

Forces allied with Libya’s Government of
National Accord launched an offensive on May
12 to retake the port city that was the
hometown of late dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

They cornered the jihadists in a small area in
central Sirte but were slowed down by snipers
and suicide bombings that have killed some
450 pro-government fighters.
