How should Boko Haram be dealt with?
Nigeria's police chief is holding a crucial meeting on Tuesday with police commissioners from across Nigeria to discuss the threat posed by Boko Haram. The Islamist group are accused of shootings in Maiduguri in recent days, and they claim responsibility for Thursday's bombing in Abuja.
The Boko Haram sect accuses Nigeria's government of being corrupted by Western ideas and wants to overthrow the state and impose Islamic law on the country. Do you in any way sympathise with this view?
A section of the Nigerian media is reporting that the police have made some arrests including foreigners following last Thursday's attack. According to the reports those arrested include some Somali nationals. A spokesman of the Boko Haram group claimed last week that some of its members had been trained in bomb making by Somali militants.
Is anti-Western sentiment on the rise across Africa? What would you like to see the police do to combat the threat Boko Haram poses to peace and stability?
