‘I was obeying the command of Allah.’: Michael Adebolajo tells court why he murdered British soldier Lee Rigby

Suspect Michael AdebolajoMichael Adebolajo, the Nigerian/British man accused of killing Lee Rigby, told the jury that he was “obeying the command of Allah” when he murdered British soldier in cold blood.

Saying he is a “soldier of Allah” himself, Adebolajo told the court: “…as I’ve explained, part of fighting jihad sometimes means killing the enemy soldier…we planned a military attack which obviously involved – sadly, it’s not something enjoyable – the death of a soldier.”

Rigby was killed outside Woolwich military barracks in South London on May 22 by Adebolajo and his accomplice Michael Adebowale who in court watched from the dock, also surrounded by prison guards.

Prosecutor Richard Whittam QC asked Adebolajo if he planned to kill Rigby on that date and if the killing was political, to which he replied: “Yes. Jihad by its very nature is political.”

According to reports, he went on to tell the jury in front of the soldier’s family that he had “no choice” in attacking Rigby as he was “a soldier of Allah.”

“Allah commands that I fight those militaries that attack the Muslims,” he said. “I don’t feel that I have any choice. I obey Allah and I commit my affairs into his hands. This is all I can do.”

    There are so many people out there, walking freely amongst us but are actually, schizophrenics. They hear voices in their heads and act out against their better judgment. This guy’s one of them, sick and utterly brainwashed.

    I’d have expected by now that justice woulda taken its course but these oyinbo people sef, person slaughter another person for broad daylight, under the watchful eyes of a handful of persons and he’s still being given the chance to spew rubbish out of his mouth in an exercise called free and fair trial??? I simply don’t get it.

    • Innocent until proven guilty, they say. I’m sorry, but didn’t his broad-daylight-murder of tнaт soldier qualify him as instantly guilty?

        Innocent until proven guilty, my rectum! With a handful of witnesses, this trial should not even happen in the first place. Don’t know who’s sicker, the one being tried or the ones trying him. An exercise in futility, billed at wasting tax payers’ money. ‘Rabbish’.
