Shocking! Ex-Boko haram members reveal why Nigerians join Boko haram
A new report by aid agency Mercy Corps seeks to answer that question why anyone would join the dreaded terrorist and has interviewed 47 former members about the reasons they entered Boko Haram.
The catalog of atrocities committed by Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram is harrowing.
Hundreds, possibly thousands, of women and children have been abducted from their homes. Captives report being gang-raped and forced into S3xual slavery. Young girls have been sent to blow themselves up in suicide attacks. The relentless slaughter of men, women and children has made Boko Haram the deadliest terrorist group in the world in recent years.
