Dokku Abu Usman (Dokku Umarov) went to jihad in 1994, as soon as he learned about the invasion of Chechnya by Russian troops. He gave up his lucrative business in Russia and returned home.
Since then, Dokku Abu Usman was forced to leave Chechnya for several months only once, at the beginning of 2000 due to a severe wound. After treatment, he returned home and continued the Jihad.
After the first Russian-Chechen war of 1994-96, Ichkerian President Aslan Maskhadov appointed Dokku Umarov Secretary of the Security Council. After the martyrdom of Chechen Emir Abdul Khalim Sadullayev in 2006, he became the head of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
In 2007, Dokku Abu Usman raised the banner of monotheism and proclaimed the Caucasus Emirate.
This move was met with hostility by secularists of various types but was unambiguously supported by Caucasus Mujahideen, united under the single banner of Oneness.
Dokku Umarov gave 20 years of his life to the Jihad. Huge working-capacity, softness and consistency earned him love and respect of ordinary Mujahideen
KavKaz is a very interesting outfit- As in questionable? Most probably connected to the NATO/Saudi/ Turkish/Israeli fighter pipeline and connected to Finland, of all places. More on that tomorrow
