Is Nigeria On the Brink of Breaking?
A couple days ago, on a bus ride from the predominantly Christian, Igbo east of Nigeria to Lagos, I fell into conversation with my co-passengers. They were mostly young undergraduates and school leavers. Nobody on the bus had witnessed the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-1970 first hand. But as information on the Kaduna bombing reached us, almost everyone came to the conclusion that only Nigeria's break-up could end this Boko Haram onslaught.
