Since 2009 the people of Nigeria have called for their government, military and the international community to protect the people from Boko Haram.  The radical Islamist group that has been deemed “too extreme” by Al Qaeda in West Africa,  have embarked on a crusade of staggering violence for over four years now; and as they stand largely unopposed, there seems to be no end in sight to the scenes of  violence and depravity.

In the wake of the recent massacre in Baga Town, we turn our attention to the seemingly helpless situation in northern Nigeria with: Dr. Alem Hailu, Associate Professor of African Studies at Howard University; and Adotei Akwei, Managing Director of Government Relations at Amnesty International USA.
