About 2,000 Nigerians killed in 2015

BAGA, Nigeria (BP, TAB) — Nigerian relations expert Adeniyi Ojutiku said today that Boko Haram’s slaughter of 2,000 northeastern Nigerians since Jan. 3 shows the extremists have escalated beyond targeting Christians and has placed Nigeria in the midst of a global war against humanity. The slaughter began Jan. 3 when hundreds of gunmen invaded Baga and surrounding villages in Borno state and began burning villages and killing residents. Ojutiku said, “This is no longer Nigeria’s war. Whatever the global community is doing with respect to ISIS … they should be doing the same thing with respect to Boko Haram.” What started as an attack on Christians in Nigeria has become the start of an Islamic war, according to Ojutiku. To date, Boko Haram controls about 20,000 square miles in northeastern Nigeria.
