UN blacklists Boko Haram

The United Nation Security Council committee yesterday May 22nd blacklisted Islamic sect Boko haram after the Nigerian government on Wednesday May 21st made a request asking for the sect to be blacklisted.
 
A statement released by the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power says the move was to help close all avenue of funding received by Boko Haram members
"Today, the Security Council took an important step in support of the government of Nigeria’s efforts to defeat Boko Haram and hold its murderous leadership accountable for atrocities. By adding Boko Haram to the U.N.’s 1267 (al Qaeda) sanctions list, the Security Council has helped to close off important avenues of funding, travel and weapons to Boko Haram, and shown global unity against their savage actions,”
With this blacklisting, it makes it an offence for any country or individual to provide any form of support to Boko Haram. The group is now subject to an international asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

    Seriously? The govt only just made the request on weds??? That's just the height of incompetence and docility. People have been dying and BH has been terrorizing the govt for almost half a decade and the govt just found this necessary? So if outside countries didn't get involved all we would still be doing is talks and no action. May the spirits of the dead innocent victims judge this president and his cabinet.

NIGERIA IS PROGRESSING AND NOW THIS PEOPLE WANT TO ESTABLISH FEAR IN US, SO WE CAN ABANDON OUR PROGRESS AND ENTER INTO A WAR WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!!!!! WAKE UP PEOPLE BOKO HARAM IS A FARCE!!! I AM TELLING YOU BECAUSE I KNOW. I KNOW. THEY ARE GONNA RECRUIT OUR YOUNG BOYS ALL IN THE NAME OF FIGHTING BOKO HARAM, AND TURN THEM INTO KILLERS OVERNIGHT. WAKE UP NIGERIA.

    DONT BELIEVE ANYTHING ABOUT FIGHTING BOKO HARAM. YOU HAVE TO GO OUT IN THE STREETS, IN YOUR COMMUNITY AND HELP OUT IN WHATEVER WAY YOU CAN. WE MUST NOT TAKE UP ARMS, WE MUST NOT LIVE IN FEAR, WE ARE BLESSED. WE MUST LOOK BACK AND ACCEPT THAT WE'VE BEEN CHEATED. WE MUST NOT FALL A VICTIM OR BE QUIET WHILE HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. THE AVERAGE NIGERIAN ALL OVER THE WORLD IS FACING A GREAT DEAL OF HARDSHIP. THEY MADE IT THAT WAY, THE COLONIALS, WHO INSTALLED THIS CORRUPT GOVERNMENT. WE MUST TELLL OUR BROTHERS NOT TO TAKE UP ARMS OF ANY SORT BECAUSE THIS WAR IS A FARCE AND FROM THE DEVIL INOTHERWARDS LET US LOOK OUT TO STICK TOGETHER IN THIS HARD TIMES AND NOT RUN AWAY, SHOUTING IN FEAR. WE MUST STAY HAPPY AND CONFESS THE PROGRESSIVENESS OF OUR PEOPLE. ONCE AGAIN, STOP SEEKING TRUTH FRO YOUR GOVERNMENT, THEY CONTROL IT ALL. WE MUST SEE THAT THE DECISIONS OF THESE PEOPLE IS REFLECTED DIRECTLY IN OUR LIVES IF WE DON T TAKE A STAND AND ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

    So, Boko Haram is not faceless afterall. They have been doing financil transaction, travellind and dealing in arms openly and legitimately all these while? Because if not, wwhich account are they freezing and who. Are they placing travel embargo on if they are faceless. I now know that there is more to Boko Haram than ordinary Nigerian can understand. It is unfortunate that our present leaders are too corrupt to fight for their own country. This will not happen under Abacha.
