Africa’s most populous country with over 150 million people, Muslims and Christians, is getting more and more threatened by extremist forces of Boko Haram. Though, so far, the group has not attracted the attention of the world but there are indications that the group is going to be a force of division in the most populated country in Africa.

In this rarely covered subject in the Western media, our Investigator, Ayo Johnson, finds out why there has been so much violence orchestrated by this group, what is the role of Boko Haram in the politics of Nigeria and what more could the government do to reduce tension.
Some quotes from the film:
Boko Haram’s bombs and bullets do not discriminate, and both Christians and Muslims have been the victims of such attacks.
Imam Faud Adeyemi is head of Al- Habibiyyah an Islamic think-tank. He says Boko Haram’s actions were as much a danger to Muslims as it was to Christian. He say’s that bombs do not discriminate!
