ICC Note: Boko Haram has ravaged northern Nigeria with murder, rape, and kidnapping of Christians for the past six years. Now that their ability to control territory has been greatly diminished, they still possess the deadly ability to launch guerilla attacks, torching villages, using suicide bombers and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in order to perpetrate mayhem on Christians and Muslims alike. The following BBC report shows exclusive video footage into Boko Haram’s last hideout.
12/29/15 Sambisa Forest, Nigeria (BBC) – BBC Hausa’s Jimeh Saleh was granted exclusive access to Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest in north-eastern Nigeria.
Travelling with the Nigerian army, he went to see how far the region had come since Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari vowed to crush the group by the end of 2015 when he was elected in May.
Boko Haram’s six-year insurgency has seen more than 17,000 people killed and over a million others displaced.
