How fortuitous! Only several day ago I was speaking of Boko Haram and how they had not been heard from recently.
From the "NEWS BRIEFING" of the Chicago Tribune as dated Sunday, 17 December.
"Nigeria raids nab hundreds of Boko Haram fighters, families"
"MAIDUGURI, Nigeria - - Nigerian soldiers have arrested more than 400 people associated with Bolko Haram extremist group hiding on the islands of Lake Chad, including fighters, wives and children, military authorities said."
. . . .
"Among those arrested were 167 Boko Haram fighters, 67 women and 173 children . . . another 57 insurgents were arrested in a separate operation."
The fight continues, the war goes on. Counter-insurgencies can last for many years, decades even! It is hardly over.
