It’s not a new thing that one of the major problems facing this country; Nigeria is insecurity challenges, which Boko Haram has been the major source of all this.
This has made the Nigerian citizens to live in fear and worry most especially in the Northern part of the country. Although, the other parts of the country are not left out as they are faced with same challenge but from different sects entirely. For instance, the west is facing the killer herdsmen who prefer to feed their cows on people’s farm produce and if peradventure such farmer retaliates, he/she would be killed and nothing will happen to such herdsman.
Boko Haram insurgency began in Nigeria in July 2009, in the Northeastern part of Nigeria with the leader of the group known as Mohammed Yusuf who got killed by the security forces in the nation and was later replaced by Abubakar Shekau. Then, the former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was in power. There have been different violent attacks by the insurgent group but it got skyrocketed in the year 2014, killing about 10,900 people. Several efforts have been made to curtail or defeat this group but still all prove abortive.
Below are the top five (5) most deadly attacks by Boko Haram:
Jos Bomb blast: This happened on the 24th of December, 2010 where about 85 civilians were killed through bomb blast reportedly launched by the Islamic militant Boko Haram.
Baga Killing: On the 16th of April, 2013 about one hundred and eighty seven (187) people got killed which was not factual whether the attack was launched by book haram or the Nigerian military men but it’s obvious after this year, further attacks point the Islamic sect. Another attack was launched on the 3rd to 7th, 2015 which left over 2000 deaths in number.
School Killings: This took place on the 29th of September, 2013 at Gujda School, leaving about 60 students dead and in the same year on the 6th of July, about 50 other students were shot dead in a school in Yobe.
Borno Killing and Abduction: Between the months of January and February 2014, over 618 people were massacred which include Christians, villagers, students and several civilians. In the same year the Chibok School students were kidnapped by the Islamic terrorist Boko Haram on the 15th of April.
2020 Chad/Nigeria Killing: More than 200 Nigerian soldiers have been killed were a lot were missing and about 94 Chadian soldiers died With several announcements being made that the insurgent terrorists have been outwitted, one begins to wonder if we are truly ready to totally overcome this difficult challenge.
