Terrorism in Nigeria: Boko Haram succeeded by rising Fulani militancy

Terrorism in Nigeria: Boko Haram succeeded by rising Fulani militancy

Due to a rising Fulani militancy, there are minority ethnic villages in North Central Nigeria that suffer deliberate, coordinated, systematic, and continuous attacks. Though this militia has killed thousands of people in recent years, they continue to operate with little to no government intervention. The nature of this violence demonstrates that the Fulani militants have the potential to displace Boko Haram as the greatest threat to Nigeria.
