Misunderstanding Boko Haram: Understanding the historic and ethnic causes of Nigeria’s fundamentalist terrorist group


The history of Boko Haram is filled with bloodshed and death.

40,000 people have been murdered by the terroristic organization. The atrocities label them as one of Africa’s most lethal radical groups. Their jihad has led to one of the largest number of displaced persons ever recorded, but little is known about the formation of the militant group.

Misunderstanding Boko Haram is the first book to unveil how this terrorist sect came into existence, who the members are, how it is sustained, and what the solution to this war may be.

It will shock and horrify its readers with the revelation that Boko Haram’s war is not a religious one, it is one comprised of radical Islamic ideals, fueled by ethnic sentiments, galvanized by the quest for vengeance, and fed by politics.

Misunderstanding Boko Haram will expose the failure of the Nigerian government in combatting this insurgency, failing the country and its people by being under-equipped and unprepared to manage this insurgency. Undoubtedly, this is an indication that beyond Nigeria itself, the greater sub-Saharan Africa and the international communities do not understand the origin, evolution, and propagation of this insurgency. They have all misunderstood Boko Haram
