In spite of any cease-fire claims made by the Nigerian government the girls aren’t coming back any time soon and Boko Haram is conquering more Nigerian territory. Boko Haram continues to displace, murder, and kidnap countless thousands of people with the Nigerian government seemingly doing nothing to stop the onslaught. It’s kind of like watching the Iraqi government try to fight the Islamic State i.e., give up and run from the enemy. I wonder how much of Nigeria will disappear into a new state? Boko Haram is not just a random group of thugs, they’re actually convincing businesses to open back up and people to stay. They’re victorious in battle and seem very Machiavellian. Only time will tell how successful Boko Haram is.
