Boko Haram just attacked three villages in Nigeria, killing at least 400 using “sophisticated weapons”. Some were disguised in military uniforms. Or were they disguised? Perhaps they actually were military, a military that has been compromised and infiltrated.
The Nigerian army has been astonishingly useless in stopping attacks by Boko. Its incompetence seems very curious indeed. This latest attack may have been a reprisal against an ambush by a Christian militia, which begs the question, where is the Nigeria military?
Nigeria is one of the most corrupt countries on the planet, which is precisely why Boko Haram was initially able to gain support, since they opposed the corruption.
Will Nigeria become a failed sate?
