Boko Haram have sworn allegiance to the Islamic State and have carried out beheadings similar to them, but US officials have said in a reported interview that there was no real connection, hence no reason for US forces to be in Nigeria to fight.

“If there is no meaningful connection between Isil and Boko Haram – and we haven’t found one so far – then there are no grounds for U.S. military involvement in West Africa other than assistance and training,” said one US official who spoke on conditions of anonymity. “This is an African fight, and we can assist them, but it’s their fight.”

The menace of Boko Haram has slowly been reducing, with Fulani herdsmen and multiple miltant groups in the South-South now wreaking havoc.
