    Bokoharam have been technically defeated. They don’t have the capability to launch attacks…Imam Ayyatollah Buhari(2016)

    The Buhari administration cure to any problematic situation is to create a committee to look into the problems. Nigeria needs one of those to find out the contribution of the SSS and police in the war against boko haram.

    Only the Nigeria army seems to be executing the war. Both the SSS and the police seem to have abandoned their responsibilities in preventing terrorism. The mediocre SSS has even re-written its mandate so as to avoid boko haram, choosing to do police work and raiding homes.
