Overview

18/06/2021

The Boko Haram crisis began in 2009 in Nigeria and a few years later spread to neighboring Niger, Chad and Cameroon. Ongoing violence is caused by both Boko Haram attacks and the counter-insurgency operations, undertaken by Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF). The MNJTF was created in 1998 and reactivated in 2012. A MNJTF regional counter-insurgency operation was launched in February 2019.? 

Among other tasks, the MNJTF is mandated to conduct ‘counter-terrorism’ operations in Lake Chad Basin region.? The regional crisis has caused internal and cross-border displacement, physical destruction, and has exacerbated the food insecurity in the region.
