BOKO HARAM: its transformation into a transnational terrorist corporation
July 7, 2015

In recent years we have seen many radical organizations become internationalized – factions that once confined their operations to within defined state boundaries have been converted into transnational terrorist corporations.

Let’s face up to reality – the global forces destabilize Kenya, Nigeria and other countries that strive for self-determination and independence. The implementation of their evil plans would require many more victims.
