BokoHaram---destroying Nigeria, from the inside.

Nigeria is the most populous nation in Africa, Since independence it has had its difficulties, ranging from inter-tribal rivalry, extreme corruption, poverty and above all the move in the North of the country from BokoHaram to destabilize, destroy, murder and attempt to rip Nigeria apart.
There can never be justification for the murder of innocents, namely school children, mothers and the elderly, all in the name of a religious group that wish to impose Sharia Law on ALL of Nigeria. The Nigerian Government seems totally incapable of fighting this scourge on what should be a prosperous nation. Perhaps therein lies the reasons why Nigeria is beset by this issue---the unfair and corrupt distribution of wealth. As with many areas of the world where terrorism flourishes, there are roots to the birth of such violent movements. Muslims around the world shudder at the thought of how their religion has been hijacked by these evil groups. Look back in  history and there have been Christian extremists who have also fought unjust and bloody battles all in the name of what should be a peaceful and loving religion. Anyone following such a religion in the extreme and adhering to the methods of genocide we have witnessed against innocent people, are not martyrs when they die---they are criminals and no religion holds a place in 'heaven' for them. In the meantime, Nigeria burns as this group reaps carnage in  the North and elsewhere. I wish peace and a sense of humanity would come to Nigeria.
