Boko Haram

This is the time of the year again when we discuss the group that have taken so many people's lives. 
The international broadcasting networks call it 'terrorism'. 
They blame it on the years of tribal conflicts, religious wars. Which is it?
Boko Haram has been terrorising Nigeria for about 3 years now. 
If you aren't sure what I am talking about? Google them.
I hate to say too much on this matter for obvious reasons,
however, I want to leave you with a couple of questions. 

How many years will it take for the government to actively do something about this?

We all know this is more than a religious war. Boko Haram just came out of no where. 
Who funded them? Who started this and why?
Some have conspiracy theories like, it was started by an ex - governor in the North to frustrate the first South - South President we have had in a while. 
Some state that it was bound to happen. Nigeria is going sideways.
Others say they are funded by Al - Qaeda. 
All the same, what are they fighting about?
Should we all just go our separate ways?

Thousands of people have died, all in the name of what?

Recently, the SSS found yet another leader of the Boko Haram group in the private residence of Honourable Tijani Umar Kumalia, a member of the Lower House between 2003 and 2007. What does this all mean? Why is a leader of Boko Haram found in a politicians house?

This brings the phrase 'friends in high places' to a new level. What is the government doing?
The FBI was sent in a year and a half ago to figure this out? What's the delay? 

May God allow those who have died to rest in peace. 
For those of us left on this earth, ask yourself this last question - do we really know what is going on?
