Key Judgements
1 The Boko Haram has proved to be a powerful group in Northern Nigeria because of the high population of Muslims, whereby some are composed of "Islamic" fanatics.
2 Boko Haram is highly influential because the group receives funding from the Osama Bin Laden’s extremist organization the Al Qaeda to the tune of 10 million dollars.
3 Boko Haram is bringing unrests in the country of Nigeria, despite it being the greatest economy in Africa because the government of Nigeria has failed in its quest to bring down the extremist group.
Background
Boko Haram is an extremist group founded by a youth Islamists group that worshipped I’tekaf , where they spent time in a mosque for a whole day and up to a year. The group worshipped at a mosque known as Al haji Muhammadu Ndimi that is in Maiduguri in Northern Nigeria in the year 2002. These youth one day decided that an "Islamic State" is to be implemented in their country (Nigeria) and then spread it to their neighbouring States.

The Islamic group based its move on Hijra, which is referred to Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) shift to Medina from Mecca.

In the political realm, the group has frustrated the government because it is responsible for unrest in parts of the country, particularly the Kaduna and Plateau states that are located in the Middle Belt. It has been suggested that the actions of this terrorist group, in the Middle Belt, has been because of the need to create a rift in Central Nigeria and disrupted the area politically. The weak leadership, in a political aspect, is among the reason for the growth of this group in Nigeria, particularly during the reign of President Goodluck Jonathan.[International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect, "The Crisis in Nigeria," ]
2 Structure
1 Leadership – The current leader of the group is Mahamat Dawoud, a rather strange and unknown name to many. He has replaced the former leader Abu-Bakr Shekau, according to a speech offered by President Idriss Deby of Chad.[BBC News, "Nigeria’s Boko Haram Militants ‘have new leader”, BBC News ]
2 Membership – The group membership comprises of people who have the same religious values and volunteer to coach them in carrying out their plans.
3 Recruiting – The new members added to the infamous group are usually youth and are willing to tra...
