Boko Haram, is a jihadist terrorist organization based in Northeastern Nigeria also operates in Chad, Niger and northern Cameroon. Founded by Mohammed Yusuf in 2002, the group has been chaired by Abubakar Shekau since 2009.
When Boko Haram was first founded, his actions were non-violent. Its main goal was to purify Islam in northern Nigeria. Since March 2015, the group has aligned itself with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
Since the beginning of the current uprising in 2009, Boko Haram has killed tens of thousands and displaced 2.3 million from their homes  and, at one point, was the most terrorist group the world's deadliest according to the Global Terrorism Index.
After its founding in 2002, the growing radicalization of Boko Haram led to the repression by the Nigerian military forces and the summary execution of its leader Mohammed Yusuf in July 2009.
His unexpected awakening, after a massive escape from Prison in Bauchi in September 2010 was accompanied by increasingly sophisticated attacks, initially against soft targets, but continued in 2011 including suicide bombings in police buildings and the United Nations office in Abuja.
The establishment of a state of emergency government in early 2012, extended the following year to the whole of northeastern Nigeria, led to an increase in both the abuse of security forces and attacks by militants.
Of the 2.3 million people displaced by the conflict since May 2013, at least 250,000 have left Nigeria and fled to Cameroon, Chad or Niger. Boko Haram killed over 6,600 people in 2014.
The group carried out mass kidnappings, including the kidnapping of 276 Chibok students in April 2014. Corruption in security services and violations of rights Acts their humans have thwarted efforts to tackle the unrest.
In mid-2014, militants acquired control of the areas of the territory in and around their home state of Borno, estimated at 50,000 square kilometers (20,000 square miles) in January 2015, but did not capture the state's capital, Maiduguri, where it was originally based on the group.
On March 7, 2015, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau promised loyalty to the Islamic state of Iraq and to the Levant, renamed as an Islamic state in West Africa.
In September 2015, the Director of Information for Nigerian Defense Headquarters announced that all Boko Haram camps had been destroyed but the group's attacks continue.
In 2019, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said that Boko Haram is "technically defeated". However, the attacks of Boko Haram have intensified and are still a serious threat from 2020.
But if this is true,then Nigeria is in for a long walk in fear.
