If a butterfly flaps its wings…In Nigeria, July 2009, #Boko Haram members (already an extreme faction of the Izala movement) refused to follow a motorbike helmet law, leading to heavy-handed police tactics that set off an armed uprising in the northern state of Bauchi and spread into the states of Borno, Yobe, and Kano. The army suppressed the protests, leaving more than eight hundred dead. The further radicalization of Boko Haram members has led to the deaths of over 20,000 in Nigeria.
Boko Haram victims, being mainly non-Western and non-White have received only sporadic attention and little outside help. @bruce121Contact
