|Territory under Boko Haram control|
A number of experts, including American general officers, with command responsibilities in the region, have tactfully stated that the Nigerian Army is incapable of inflicting defeat upon Boko Haram, including the commander of AFRICOM*. There are reports that critical military supplies, including arms and ammunition, are diverted from the combat zone, due to Nigeria's rampant corruption. Nigerian commanders, and PEPs, steal funds intended to fight BH, and pocket the money.
Under the circumstances, the risk levels regarding Nigeria, already at elevated levels, must now be increased again. Kindly consider raising Country Risk for Nigeria at this time, and examine your bank clients', and your own, present financial exposure.
