New Term, Old Problems For Nigeria’s Buhari: Boko Haram Advances And Violence All Around

NIGERIA’S President Muhammadu Buhari, who won a second presidential term last week after a delayed poll, faces a variety of security challenges: a decade-long and resurgent Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast; endemic insecurity in the oil-producingNiger Deltasouth, and – less reported but often the most deadly– spiralling violence between pastoralist Fulani herders and local farmers in the northwest.

Despite Buhari’s 2015 claim that Boko Haram was “technically defeated”, jihadists continue gaining ground across Lake Chad and West Africa, where the humanitarian fallout is, if anything, worsening.

For a comprehensive look at the causes and the consequences of militancy in the Sahel region, check out this curation of our long-term reporting. And for a personal and graphic account of covering Boko Haram over the course of several years, this reporter’s diary from Chika Oduah is a must-read.
