Al Jazeera’s new host British Nigerian Femi Oke Talked about Boko Haram on The Stream. She read out tweets, assisted by Al Jazeera’s digital producer Malika, by Nigerians in the North lamenting over the insurgency.
Talking about the terrorist sect, she said: “Is Nigeria any closer to solving its issues with Boko Haram? Since the armed group’s formation more than a decade ago, thousands of civilians have been killed in bombings and attacks. But is the government’s response to fighting domestic terrorism also part of the problem? What’s motivating the continued violence by Boko Haram?”
Also featured in this episode of The Stream is Nigerian Writer, Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka, also Nigerian Activist Omoyele Sowore, Dr. Yvonne Ndege and Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Doyin Okupe.
