    Does Stephen Williams think the religious leaders are in charge of importing weapons? Apart from Abu Bakr and a few pentacostal preachers there is no evidence that religious leaders are in charge of the weapon trade. It appears to be more likely that some policemen are involved in this business in order to get some pocket money.
