6-year-old ISIS child soldier has Nigerian parent – Reports
to Christian parents, Henry and Victoria Dare and grew up in Lewisham, South London.
At the age of 18, reports revealed she (Grace Khadijah) converted to Islam, married a Swedish ISIS fighter, Abu Bakr and began worshipping at the Lewisham Islamic Centre, which has links to both the Woolwich killers of Lee Rigby and radical cleric Abu Hamza.Together, the couple have had two children, the oldest being the six-year-old ISIS-child soldier.
Grace admitted in a Channel 4 report in 2013 that when she began wearing the full face veil in Lewisham, people on the street told her to ‘go back to her country’, to which she replied: ‘I was born round the corner.’
In the same footage, she urged other Muslims to “stop being so selfish; focusing on your families or studies”, and implored them to join her in Syria and join the holy war.
According to the Mail Online, Grace’s father Henry Dare, a cab driver, Tuesday, confirmed that his grandson is “definitely” the boy in the “sick ISIS video dressed in military fatigues and a black bandanna bearing the white mark of ISIS and chillingly declaring that “We will kill kuffar (non-believers).”
Speaking with The Telegraph, Henry Dare said, “I was surprised when I saw the picture. It’s definitely him. Of course I’m worried but there’s nothing I can do now. I’m not angry; I would never have expected it. I just hope someone is trying to bring them back.”
According to the report, in 2014, Grace posted another shocking photograph of the boy, named Isa, on her Twitter account, holding an AK-47 rifle. The boy was then just four years old.
