Boko Haram

Davis Lewin discusses the Nigerian government’s response to Boko Haram on Sky News

by
Henry Jackson Society

On the 17th May, HJS Political Director appeared on Sky News to comment on the political difficulties the government of Nigeria is beginning to face, amid increased media coverage of terrorist violence in the north of the country. Davis went on to highlight the Nigerian government’s initial reluctance to accept foreign aid in combating terrorist organisation Boko Haram, and how increased coverage of the group’s atrocities has forced Nigeria to coordinate its military response with regional partners and the West.
