Boko Haram had been more peacefull in it’s first seven years of existence until in 2009 Nigerian military investigating the claim that they where arming themselves, killed their leader and cracked down on their members.
This allowed Shekau a ruthless and heartless killer to take vein of the group and turn them into what we see now.

Their first attack occurred in Borno state, only four people died but since then analysis have revealed that the insurgents have killed more than 3000 innocent Nigerian using their gorilla warfare strategy.
The Group have been forcefully converting people they term as non believers and have been known to use Okada (Motorcycle) as their main mode of transportation when attacking.
