Boko Haram: A brief history

If Boko Haram were to be a commercial brand, it will tenably rival the likes of Google, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, amongst others in terms of global recognition. Founded in 2009 by Mohammed Yusuf and succeeded by Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram metamorphosed from being a sleepy, rabble religious sect to a monstrous bloodletting terror organization that taunted and some say, humbled the Nigerian military by virtually carving out vast swathes of land as its Islamic Caliphate - out of the Nigerian federation at the peak of its blitzkrieg. Notoriously ranked as the world’s deadliest terrorist organization in terms of casualties, Boko Haram militants have killed thousands of people and displaced about 2.2 million persons (IDPs). Largely dislodged from the Caliphate it carved out and occupied, the Sect has retroverted to its primordial tactics, more like Guerilla warfare of intermittently deploying suicide bombers with improvised explosive devices (IEDs) coupled with hit-and-run attacks on soft targets.
