The abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in northern Nigeria in April 2014 provoked angry street protests at home and growing outrage around the world. In this programme, Rear Vision looks at why the wealthiest nation in Africa seems unable to deal with the violent Islamist sect, Boko Haram.

Dr Higazi (Research Fellow in African Studies at King's College, Cambridge) joined Richard Dowden (Director of the Royal African Society) and Sola Tayo (Associate Fellow at Chatham House in London) to discuss the origins of Boko Haram.

The programme is available to download here.
