In the past week, at least 239 people were killed and 44 others kidnapped in separate violent incidents across Nigeria mostly by the heavily armed terrorist group, Boko Haram.

Twenty-seven boys and their teachers were taken from a school in Kagara, Niger state. At least 20 students and three staff members of Greenfield University, a private academic institution in Kaduna, northwest Nigeria, 3 were killed last week and 2 more killed yesterday. Gunmen invaded the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, the Benue State capital, and abducted an undisclosed number of students as confirmed by the institution confirmed on Monday, April 26, 2021. Since December 2020, around 730 students have been abducted, disrupting the studies of more than five million children, UN agency UNICEF said.

Across the nation, the tension has extended into different states. No fewer than nine people were killed on Monday when hoodlums invaded Ukpomachi community, Awkuzu in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, Eastern Nigeria.

Foreign leaders arrived in Chad on Thursday for the funeral of slain president Idriss Deby despite warnings from the rebels that foreign leaders should not attend Friday's funeral for security reasons.

Deby who has been President of Chad since 1990 and was only just reinstated for a sixth term in office, died on Tuesday from injuries sustained at the battle frontlines against the Boko Haram terrorist group. A statement from

When Edward Lorenz gave his revolutionary speech in 1972 titled Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil Set off a Tornado in Texas? he spoke squarely on how microscale disturbances can disrupt the frequency of occurrences of various weather events across the world. It was a simple case of here’s how action A might set off action Z even if they are miles apart. However, since the inception of this theory, this butterfly effect has served as an explanatory yardstick for a myriad of events; some even topically unrelated to weather. Did Lorenz foresee that the modified

Cameroonian, Nigerian, and Chadian troops have successfully rescued over 50 former fighters and civilians from Boko Haram camps. Most of the civilians are women and children, some with fresh scars and amputated body parts.
