Boko Haram Puts Nigeria In US Black Book
Boko Haram atrocities in Nigeria’s north east have sentenced Nigeria into a spot in the United States Special Watch List (SWL) for governments that have engaged in or tolerated severe violations of religious freedom.
Nigeria joins Russia, Cuba, Sudan, and Uzbekistan on the list.
According to a statement signed and released by US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, Nigeria appears to have qualified to enter the list due to Boko Haram activities in the north-east.
Boko Haram was designated as “Entities of Particular Concern.”
