There are strong indications that international terror group, ISIS is collaborating more with the insurgents in Nigeria- Boko Haram.

Commander of the United States military’s Special Operations in Africa, Brig. Gen. Donald C. Bolduc, revealed that a convoy of weapons were seen leaving Libya for Chad.

American military officials also say a shipment that was seized along the Chadian border on April 7, 2016, contained small-caliber weapons, machine guns and rifles.

The security experts say the movement of weapons from Libya through the Chadian border is a proof of the fact that there is a strong link between Boko Haram and ISIS.

New York Times, reports that American Special Forces have been involved in training the African military  team on how to fight insurgency.

According to General Bolduc, “The Lake Chad basin is ground zero in the fight against militant Islam in Africa."

He also said "beyond Boko Haram’s pledge of allegiance to the Islamic State last year, the two groups were sharing tactics, techniques and procedures.”

Also speaking, Gen. Lamidi Oyebayo Adeosun, the Nigerian commander of the regional group of African countries, said Boko Haram has adopted a new strategy of using girls to carry out suicide bombings.

Adeosun said “They are appealing to the natural care you feel for a girl child.

“When you see a girl child, you will not feel that she could be carrying a bomb. They achieve maximum effect that way.”

Also, residents of the North-East region of Nigeria that was devastated by terrorists attacks, have organise solidarity march for soldiers who are waging war against Boko Haram.
