LONDON (Reuters) - Nigeria's militant Islamist group Boko Haram pledged allegiance on Saturday to Islamic State, which rules a self-declared caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria, according to an audio clip posted online.

Boko Haram has killed thousands and kidnapped hundreds during its six-year campaign to carve out an Islamist state in northern Nigeria. In recent months it has increased cross-border raids into Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

"We announce our allegiance to the Caliph ... and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity, in hardship and ease," read an English language translation of the audio broadcast in Arabic that purported to be from the Nigerian militant group.

"We call upon Muslims everywhere to pledge allegiance to the Caliph," it read.

The pledge of allegiance was attributed to Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.

Sweet. They are picking teams. Won't be long before the final conflict. Maybe we can leave now and watch the war on CNN and FNC and al-Jazeera America from the comfort of our backyard bunkers.
