Since 2009, the militant Islamist group known as Boko Haram has wreaked havoc in northern Nigeria. Instilling terror through bombings, abductions, and beheadings, Boko Haram is fighting to create an Islamic state in the most populous country in Africa.
VICE News traveled to Nigeria to embed with the country's army as it ramped up its fight against Boko Haram, whose rise has caused a state of emergency. As the only journalists on the front line in northern Nigeria, we witnessed the beginning of the largest military insurgency to date.
A question comes to reality when you hear about Boko Haram and why the USA hasn't done anything about it. One major thing the US did involve in was the #BringOurGirlsHome when 90 school female students were captured by Boko Haram in Nigeria but did little to nothing in the constant militant onslaught occurring in Nigeria. One major contender as to why we seem to care about ISIS and not so much about Boko Haram is because we have much less economic stake in Nigeria versus the middle-east.
I recommend checking out these videos and the VICE News video especially.
