Nigeria making progress against Boko Haram

trrrsm

While there has been news of recent attacks (another here) in Nigeria, suspected to have been carried out by Boko Haram, including one of which has killed 44 people in a mosque,  Nigeria’s interior minister has said that the army is making progress in the war against Boko Haram. This appears to be good news because the group has in recent years been responsible for some of the worst brutal killings.

Recently, a senior US  diplomat said Boko Haram’s cruel insurgency had stalled Nigeria’s development, inflamed ethnic tensions and raised concern among its neighbours.

I believe that one of the greatest challenges facing Africa today is the threat of religious fundamentalism. Governments across Africa should unite and fight it off the continent because it creates conflict between groups, blocks investment, gives the continent a negative image and hinders the continent’s progress as a whole.
