Abstract:This article examines the role Boko Haram has been playing over the years. Based on an analysis of news randomly taken from the Nigerian media, it offers suggestions on how the media and other Nigerian development agents can contribute to an end of the attacks carried out by this group. Subsequently, it aims to show that the media, in conjunction with other Nigerian development agents, can be used to identify the criminal activities of Boko Haram insurgents in the area, and to study the modus vivendi and modus operandi of the group.
