Olakunle Lawrence of the Nigerian Blogger will be back to guest speak on the conflict of over 230 missing young school girls in his native Nigeria.
The girls have been missing since April 2014 with more being taken over the weeks. In fact the Boko Harem is threting to start terroizing Cameroon and taking school girls.
Olakunle wrote in an article on his blog the following excerpt:
Those who call themselves freedom “fighters”/ “terrorists”/ jihadist”, and are willing to die based on an ideology which they wholeheartedly believe in, do it based on that ideology alone for the most part. These beliefs are usually hinged on the concept of freedom, liberation and justice. However perverted the principles they espouse are to the “rational” person, to them its their truth.
However in Nigeria, there is a new trend, one that is subliminally hidden behind all the talk of jihad and Islamic liberation. This new trend is what i have termed “Money terrorism“
Boko haram is a terrorist group based out of the northern part of Nigeria. They have been responsible for multiple killings, bombings and senseless acts of violence against innocent civilians and people.They believe only in the “pure”, “unadulterated” and strict Islamic teachings. Now, this group led by its leader Abubakar Shekau claim these acts of violence are based on turning Nigeria into an Islamic state and nothing more. They claim its a fight based on right and wrong as they perceive it.
I beg to differ. I differ wholeheartedly. Read More From The Nigerian Blogger at the following link.
