Boko Haram : A Run Away Train.

There are no signs that the Nigeria military that has a December deadline to "end the insurgency" is winning the war against the terror group.  5 young girls killed 12 people in a border village between Nigeria and Cameroon in suicide explosions during the weekend. Said officials The teenage attackers died in the suicide bombing. On Sunday night, female suicide bombers killed 15 in a Nigerian market assault. A girl let off bombs strapped to her body on Sunday evening at a military checkpoint manning an entrance to Maiduguri, Nigeria. She was killed by the bomb as well as 7 other passengers who got off a bus to be searched were injured. It was the first suicide attack in almost 30 days in Maiduguri. The city is the "birthplace" of Boko Haram, that has killed more than 20,000 people in 6 years. It has also displaced about 1.5 million to 2.3 million people according to sources including CRF's Nigeria Security Tracker. The strategy by Nigeria's new administration is not working. The army engages more in information management and blame than actual push. The December deadline is a wish, at best. it is time to rethink the tactics. It might even help to consult with Jonathan but that,too, is a wish. Cameroon for instance, reported on Monday that 4 teenage suicide bombers blew themselves up and a family of 5 when stopped by a vigilante at Fotokol town,just by the border with Nigeria. “When a member of a local vigilante committee made to stop them, one blew herself up, killing five members of a family,” a government minister said. “On hearing the explosion, soldiers fired into the air to frighten the possible attackers. The three others panicked and detonated explosives tied round their bodies, but they only killed themselves.” Reports say It is funny that Boko Haram is more creative than the regular Nigerian army.. For instances young girls with bombs tied to their bodies submit themselves for search and the let off the bombs. The time for talks an a national self deception should be over. It is time for the army to get creative. Nobody is listening as the army announces its "successes"
