Patricia Jabbeh Wesley: Boko Haram

Nigeria, one of the richest and most prosperous countries in Africa, boasting of the most educated group of Africans on earth, the most populous, most powerful militarily, has offered little resistance as the extremist Islamist Boko Haram has waged a bloody, violent attack against innocent civilians, persecuting Christian groups, kidnapping boys and girls by the hundreds, burning down whole towns.

It is a shame that there is such a government that has made itself so powerless by its corruption and involvement of government officials with these wicked people. They have watched as their Nigerian-bred group spreads violence in Cameroon, the neighboring country.

How is this possible? Why aren’t Nigerians in the streets, outraged? Why should a country that is supposed to be of assistance to poorer African countries on the continent sit by as a terrorist group wages this terrible war? When will Nigeria wake up and stop this violence?

Just this week, Boko Haram burned to death over 2,000 civilians in a town, and all the President had to say was how inaccurate the number of dead was, and then he visited the terrorist leaders. How does the President’s visit with this terrorist group help to bring peace? Unless they treat this insurrection as a true war, the violence will spread across the West African region, and endanger hundreds of millions of innocent people.
