Boko Haram

Boko Haram extremist group abducted eight young girls from a public transportation between the ages of 11-14 and took them back to Nigeria. They kill seven of the passenger they had taken hostage and dumped their bodies near Cameroon’s border. The bus driver was also slain. Boko Haram has intensified its attack in Cameroon and Nigeria in the past week after both country agreed to provide soldier to go against Boko Haram.

This is another example of Boko Haram killing in a bid to carve out an independent Islamic state in northeastern Nigeria. This is an example of killing over religion and what power is going to rule. They are killing innocent people to establish their superiority. They are attacking and killing because they think they are doing an ethnically cleansing- which is define as rendering an ethnically homogenous bus using force or intimidation to remove person of given group from the area. So at the hand of Boko Haram what they think is occurring is ethic cleaning. So that’s why they are killing people to. The Religious sector is that they believe that Christians and other ‘believers’ neo-colonialists intent on the destruction of Islam and responsible for the deprivation of northern Muslims. So the conflict is over religion and will people give over to this.

This is becoming a global problem because it is expanded to the U.S. building attack, attacking reporter, link to Al Queda and to extremist group in Mali. They are now listed in the U.S. terrorists group.
