Last quote about Boko Haram

Ryan Cummings
Does the judiciary have the capacity to give so many people charged with very serious offences a fair trial? Have the authorities really captured a quarter of their combat strength? Are they taking into account the fact that a lot of those who committed violence for Boko Haram did so under duress? All these are red flags and very concerning in terms of the broader

When we first ask kids to draw what is in their mind, they draw bombs, corpses and burning houses. A young boy, who watched his parents die, told me: 'When I see Boko Haram, I am going to kill them'. If we leave kids idle, they may one day practice what they have

Taye-Brook Zerihoun

A military approach will not bring an end to Boko Haram. Affected countries must simultaneously tackle the humanitarian consequences as well as the root causes that led to the emergence of the group. Military operations should be followed with stabilization measures, the restoration of state authority and addressing the social, economic and political grievances of marginalized

Patricia Grey - International Rescue Committee

Women and girls held by Boko Haram have fear and anxiety about how their families and communities will receive them ... people being scared of you is traumatizing in its own right. People often call former captives Boko Haram supporters or the enemy, and this could hinder girls getting the help they need as they fear the abuse will be even worse if they do

It is shocking to see so many people malnourished in Maiduguri, not just in isolated and hard-to-reach areas. Aid actors have access, and there has been no Boko Haram presence for the last few years, but people are starving to death inside Maiduguri. Millions are in a nutrition

Al Qaeda's principle enemy now is Daesh – the group that calls itself Islamic State – because Daesh revolted against al-Qaida. You have to know that all these terrorist organisations like al-Qaida, Daesh, the Al-Nusra Front and Boko Haram, even Daesh leader al-Baghdadi, all followed the rules laid down by Osama bin Laden, they may not get along with Ayman al-Zawahiri but they're fine with the man they see as their spiritual father – Osama bin

Mevlut Cavusoglu

Our suggestion to them is that they should also wear Daesh, al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda insignias during their operations in other regions of Syria. They can also wear the Boko Haram insignia when they go to Africa, but they don't see YPG in the same way as the other terrorist

Children in this situation typically require medical assistance and psycho-social support to help them cope with what they have been through while they were in captivity. Our experience with children and women who were kidnapped by Boko Haram and freed by the military or escaped shows that they often face mistrust, stigma and rejection when they return to their

Francois Hollande

This terrorist group [Boko Haram] has been weakened, it's been pushed back, it's been chased around and has given up the territories it was controlling, and as a result it's being even better targeted and fought. However, this terrorist group remains a

Luis Carballo

The war against Boko Haram is being fought on the borders of Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon. Armed participation in this offensive, particularly by the Chadian troops, is changing the situation and, for the first time in many years, the jihadists are losing

Luis Carballo

In the ten years of its existence, Boko Haram has killed and kidnapped thousands of civilians. Tens of thousands have fled from Nigeria to escape this group that uses terror and extreme cruelty as weapons. Besides having lost everything, most of these refugees have suffered deep psychological

Mohammed Benhammou

I don't think that Boko Haram will sabotage the elections. It is certain they have managed more or less to obstruct the elections especially in the north of the country. But I don't think they will succeed in stopping them. It's true that there is a security threat. Boko Haram might carry out terrorist attacks to stop people going to vote, particularly in the

Mohammed Benhammou

Nigerian authorities have taken extraordinary measures. They've closed the land and sea borders. Vehicles are not allowed to be used, except official vehicles. The Nigerian authorities are also circling Boko Haram

We support you in your fight against terrorism, against Boko Haram, which is a necessary fight, not only for your country, but for the whole

Mathieu Guidère

2009 was a turning point because leaders emerged, in particular the group's current leader Shekau, who had a messianic vision: impose a system on the entire population of the north of the country. They began a strategy of revenge; attacks and reprisals that bred more violence, feeding off hatred. Today it's very hard to see just what Boko Haram and Shekau really

Mathieu Guidère

But on a local level, unfortunately, the fact there's been an international mobilisation, from outside, from abroad, and that Boko Haram is at the centre of this global communications campaign, makes Boko Haram look like the champion of all things anti-Western, refusing foreign interference and fighting it, and this will only raise its profile and help it recruit new

Mathieu Guidère

This can be explained by a number of very complicated factors, but it comes down to geopolitics in the end. After internal power struggles both at federal and governmental level, there is no consensus on how to fight Boko Haram.
