    BOKO HARAM (the abrupt menace)

    Whoever thought a country like NIGERIA would ever have TERRORISM as part of its problems.
    Day by day boko haram is slowly infiltrating and spreading in the system causing a lot of harm and even more poverty to the victims of their attacks.
    The NIGERIAN government has been doing a lot to curb the activities of these sect group (at least that is what they told NIGERIANS),one of there efforts was the AMNESTY they offered the NIGERIAN TALIBAN as they are also called but that didnt quite work as well as it did for the NIGER DELTA militants when former president UMAR MUSA YAR'ADUA was in office.
    There is a controversy about the sect group that they have sponsors in government and even well known wealthy Nigerians one of which was executed in 2009,it was also said that the suspected financier of the sect had close ties with the present vice president NAMADI SAMBO.Other attempts by the authorities are raids,arrests and so on.
    The activities of the NIGERIAN TALIBAN fully evoked in 2009 where they started the "FOUR DAY UPRISING" then in 2010 was the "PRISON BREAK" when they broke into a prison in BAUCHI STATE and released all prisoners including all their members awaiting trial,in the process some men of the force were killed.In 2011 there was the "UN ATTACK".They bombed the UNITED NATIONS HEADQUATERS in ABUJA,NIGERIA.In 2012 they initiated their spread into other states in nothern Nigeria SOKOTO & KOGI state.During all these years there have been many attacks on especially the CHRISTIAN population in the north and attacks on women and children also.
    The recruits of the NIGERIAN TALIBAN is not just from NIGERIA they also recruit from ALGERIA,MALI etc What the sect actually seem to want is Nigeria turned into a SHARIA law country,"western education abolished",also rumors have been swelling too that they have a problem with the way CRUDE OIL REVENUES are being distributed.Most people see their demands as "ridiculous" because NIGERIA is a country with the population divided equally in terms of religion.
    Every NIGERIAN wants to live in peace and harmony and also live without the fear and have freedom to do everything good.
    And yes, if CRUDE OIL MONEY is the cause of our many chaos,i hope it drys up soon...DON'T YOU?
