How has the extremist group Boko Haram, which began as a small Islamic sect, managed to make Nigeria, the richest country in Africa, and all its neighbors, tremble with fear? Who are they and how did they become so powerful? Xavier Muntz spent a month in Northern Nigeria, in the heart of the red zone, to answer these very questions. He met with many people, all directly affected by this religious uprising. Victims, soldiers and even Jihadi sympathizers. Founded in 2002, nothing initially distinguished Boko Haram from the other Islamic groups that already proliferated in Nigeria. The change came after the execution of their leader in 2008. Their new leader, Aboubacar Shekahu, started adopting large-scale terrorist methods, and sent men to fight with Al Qaeda in Mali. In March 2015, the group pledged allegiance to ISIS. A historical and analytical investigation diving deep into the heart of Jihadi Africa.
