The Nigerian Tribune quotes Africa Center Director J. Peter Pham on the 200,000 Christians that are the main target of an imminent attack in Maidiguri, Nigeria by Boko Haram:
Director of the Africa Project at the Atlantic Council, J. Peter Pham, said “an attack on Madiguri is very likely. They have done it everywhere else they have gone. So, why not Maiduguri?”
Pham’s view, according to the report, was similar to those of US intelligence officials, who also believe that Boko Haram has already placed “sleeper cells” among the tide of refugees who had fled the group’s rampage.
