Boko Haram Plunders Abandoned Villages For Food After Farmers, Herdsmen Flee To Avoid Group’s Violence

New York Times: Boko Haram Falls Victim to a Food Crisis It Created
“…After rampaging across the region for years, forcing more than two million people to flee their homes and farms, Boko Haram appears to be falling victim to a major food crisis of its own creation. Farmers have fled, leaving behind fallow fields. Herdsmen have rerouted cattle drives to avoid the violence. … The hunt for food appears to be part of what is pushing Boko Haram deeper into Cameroon, according to an American State Department review of attacks in the first few weeks of this year…” (Searcey, 3/4).
