The new organisation, calling itself Jahba East Africa, told its recruits to “leave al-Shabaab and their sponsor groups” and back ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

A statement published online declared “bayah” – an oath of allegiance – to Baghdadi, hailing him as the “rightful Khalifa [leader] of all Muslims”.

The group criticises rival Islamist cell al-Shabaab, which has refused to join ISIS, revealing a split among the jihadi groups that have infected East Africa.

The statement reads: “Al-Shabaab has forgotten the resolved needed to work for the establishment of the rule of Allah.

“Al-Shabaab has now become a psychological and physical prison.

“The pledge bayah to caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is freedom for the mujahideen in East Africa and opportunity to wage jihad according to the Sunnah [traditions of the Prophet Mohammed] against the enemies of Allah.”
