@MiglioreJAM @MOSECON_Su @CopSmithTPS @MrMubinShaikh Scariest part is that those numbers don't include communal violence or ISWAP attacks. I'll say it again, the conflicts in the #Sahel and lake Chad region are some of the most overlooked, underestimated, misunderstood and worst in the world
Un développement catastrophique qui s'ajoute à une liste croissante de retraits de personnel de sécurité dans plusieurs endroits au #burkinafaso cette année. C'est révélateur de l'ampleur de la menace et son développement exponentiel depuis 2017. #Sahel https://t.co/zq8j0OWCoX
And by the way, the Supercamps idea to fight #ISWAP & #BokoHaram isn't right for Nigerian context & draconian media laws on "terrorism support" in Burkina hasn't stopped BF security forces from withdrawing from areas or the expansion of #ISGS / #JNIM activities around the country
Not talking about a problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
NA shows again it's clueless. It looks elsewhere for ideas (Mali for Supercamps, Burkina for issue below) which is good if adapted to own context, but not if applied wholesale. #ISWAP learns & adapts, NA shld too 1/2 https://t.co/93CWOwX8p7
@MiglioreJAM @MOSECON_Su @CopSmithTPS @MrMubinShaikh And as the attacks increase, so does the de facto territorial control of terrorist organisations in the region expanding eastwards and westwards, as well as spilling over into Ghana, Benin, Togo and the Ivory Coast. It's not a spike as much as a pandemic. 2/2
