Boko Haram In Nigeria

Ah just got the news(definitely a rumor) that ma Oga from the series film"24",Jack Bauer will soon land in 9ja purposely because of this people,'The Boko Ha-ram Sect',LOL...Them die well

Let me brief you about this people
Boko Ha-ram (figuratively, "Western or non-Islamic education is a sin") is a Nigerian Islamist group that seeks the imposition of Shariah law in the northern states of Nigeria. The group presently has an undefined structure and chain of command.
The official name of the group is Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad, which in Arabic means "People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet's Teachings and Jihad".
It became known internationally following sectarian violence in Nigeria in 2009.

Ustaz Mohammed Yusuf formed Boko Haram in 2002 in Maiduguri. He established a religious complex that included a mosque and a school. Many poor families from across Nigeria and from neighboring countries enrolled their children in the school, which also served as a recruiting center for jihadis to fight the Nigerian state. In 2004 it moved to Kanamma, Yobe State, where it set up a base called "Afghanistan", used to attack nearby police outposts, killing police officers. Yusuf is hostile to democracy and the secular education system, vowing that "this war that is yet to start would continue for long" if the political and educational system was not changed.
In Bauchi the group was reported as refusing to mix with the local people. The group includes members who come from neighbouring Chad and speak only in Arabic.
