Recall that Boko Haram activities have killed thousands of Nigerians, Chadians, Cameroonians and displaced millions of persons majorly in the North-East part of the Nigeria and neighboring countries. The worst hit states in Nigeria is Borno state, others are Yobe and Adamawa states, all in the north east.

You will recall that after Chadian leader Idriss Déby accused Nigerian authorities of releasing captured Boko Haram fighters in 202,he was thereafter killed on April 19, 2021.

The United States authorities had also offered to assist the Nigeria governments in exposing the sponsors of Boko Haram group, but as at today, 16th of September 2021, the Buhari-led government is yet to accept the American offer.

Judging by the body language of the president, who doubles as the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces, the Nigerian authorities isn’t ready to expose the sponsors of Boko Haram who have killed thousands of innocent Nigerians foreigners.
