Nigeria Islamic militants Boko Haram was last month losing battle to Nigeria military who launched an offensive on the group at their main base, Sambisa forest.
This was so close to the collapse of Boko Haram who had subjected Nigeria to a lot of atrocities, the main one being the kidnapping of Chibok girls.
Boko Haram has however once again made attempts to show their relevance in a losing battle by attacking Giwa barracks in Nigeria’s northeastern Maiduguri town.
Intelligence analysis show that the attack could be a plot for the group to steal ammunition from the military following their loss, even after pledging an allegiance to ISIS.
Reports also indicate that Boko Haram has not been receiving support as expected from the Islamic State. This is causing a major breakdown of the group as some of its members are now opting to defect.
Nigerian authorities have now imposed a 24-hour curfew on Maiduguri in Borno State.
Nigerian military has however assured Nigerians that the situation is under control.
These are the final kicks of these insurgents. The public is being warned of possible abduction by the group only for them to demand ransom from Nigeria government.
In depth analysis further indicates that Boko Haram could stage attacks on government institutions and probably Nigeria’s oilfields in order to raise money to conduct terror activities in Nigeria.
This could be their attempt to establish stronger bases following liberation of Sambisa and the rescue of more than 300 girls and women from the insurgents.
