An independent journalist and author, Andrew Walker has said that non-conventional warfare was needed to defeat Boko Haram in Nigeria.
The insurgent group that has terrorised most parts of the north-eastern part of the country with heinous attacks and unspeakable violence.
Walker made the remarks at the launch of his book: “Eat the Heart of the Infidel”: The Harrowing of Nigeria and the Rise of Boko Haram at Chatham House in London on Thursday.
He said though Boko Haram was a local insurgent group “without tanks and other sophisticated weapons”, it committed “heartbreaking” atrocities against the people, but stressed that the group lacked the “vision and the wherewithal” to pose a threat to the West.
In his remarks, an associate fellow at Chatham House, Dr Marc-Antoine Perouse de Montclos said corruption in Nigeria affected the war on Boko Haram, which he described as an insurgent group with “social and complex interests.”
