Boko Haram is one of the Islamic militias that claim to be waging Jihad around West Africa.
However, one thing that seems to be complicated for the ordinary mind is the ability of the group to last this long causing mayhem in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.
- Governors unanimous on killing of all bandits, terrorists – El-Rufai
- Deby’s death, Nigeria and Boko Haram insurgency
The question is who is sponsoring the group. Many reports claim that some other Islamic militia groups such as Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and Al-Shabab are the ones sponsoring Boko Haram but no actual proof has shown that.
Though it was reported that the group gets its supplies from attacking communities, there is still the need for the government to investigate thoroughly and block all their sponsors.
Therefore, I want to appeal to the government to investigate the sponsors of all terrorist groups for peace to reign in our country.
That is important to ensure protection of lives and property of Nigerians.
