After Years Of Impunity For Mass Atrocities, Nigeria Faces A New Wave Of Violence By A Daesh Affiliated Group - Ewelina U. Ochab
In December 2019, news began to filter out of Nigeria that a Daesh affiliated terror group has been responsible for the brutal murder of several Christians. The new wave of killings does not come as a surprise.
Nigeria has been haunted by such acts of violence against Christians for many years. Indeed, the spike in atrocities perpetrated by the Daesh affiliated group, Islamic State in West Africa, adds to the terror unleashed by Boko Haram (a terror groups that pledged allegiance to Daesh in the past) and the Fulani militia.
Again, this should not come as a surprise. The growing impunity in Nigeria is an open invitation for such atrocities to continue. This impunity must be addressed as a matter of urgency.
