Popular Nigerian cartoonist, Mike Asukwo has sparked reactions with his latest cartoon depicting the marauding bandits and dreaded Boko Haram sect as sharing same agenda.
The Business Day editorial cartoonist often speaks on current happenings in Nigeria through animations and cartoons which be often post on his social media account.
In a cartoon shared on his Facebook page, Asukwo has suggested that bandits are implementing the Boko Haram ideology as their increasing attacks on schools have led to closure of schools.
THISDAY reported that no fewer than 618 schools have remained closed in six northern states over the fear of attack and abduction of pupils and members of staff.
The six states where some schools have remained closed are Sokoto, Zamfara, Kano, Katsina, Niger and Yobe.

The cartoon might be accurate as Boko Haram have been fighting for the eradication of western culture including formal education. While their attacks on western schools have waned over the years, bandits have focused on abducting students and staff, leading to closure of schools in affected states.
His cartoon has drawn reactions from Nigerians as majority agree that bandits and Boko Haram share same common goal and there is no difference between the two dreaded groups.
Do you think bandits are implementing Boko Haram ideology?
