Professor Bola Akinteriwa is the Director General of Nigeria Institute of International Affairs. He describes Boko Haram fighters as ‘religious terrorists.’ The professor dismisses the idea that the group is acting in the name of Islam, calling their ideology “satanic at best”. He recognizes the difficulty in dealing with Boko Haram, who have the upper hand in the hostage situation and are always planning ways in which to protect themselves, calling it a “hide and seek game”. He believes that combating the ideology on every level is the only way to defeat them and says, “Terrorism has to be fought tooth and nail, wholly, without any condition.”
