going above and beyond

Boka Haram has taken root because the Nigerian government has refused to answer the needs of it's people. Then allowing oil interest to come in and disrupt, pollute and further corrupt the country and government. They are basically a lose coalition of the disgruntled, disenfranchised, radical Moslem and other interests. Radical Moslems were forced into this coalition by the reaction of the people and government to their ( Northern Moslem ) support of terrorists acts. Nigeria is attempting to modernize. They view radical Moslems as counter to that goal. The problem is, only a small group is benefitting from the oil wealth.
