Why 2000 killed in Nigeria is not world headlines

The single most deadly event of global terrorism in recent human
history failed to make global headlines for obvious reasons—it
happened in Nigeria.
On Saturday the 3rd of January, Boko Haram terrorists from Nigeria
and Chad stormed Baga fishing town in Borno state and after
discharging the multinational forces stationed, begun what will be
the worst massacre and single event of ethnic cleansing of the
current century.
Amnesty International estimates that up to 2000 people were killed.
Most reports give equivalent figures. Corpses have been strewn
across the town, home to population of an estimated 10,000 that
has now been wiped off the face of the earth. Fleeing residents were
gunned down as they ran with the young, women and elderly as the
predominant victims.
In Paris this week, terrorists killed 12 people at the Charlie Hebdo
magazine office and candle-light processions and other events of
global solidarity have been rampant across the globe. The
perpetrators of the act of terror have already been narrowed down,
identified and killed.
Perhaps the answer to why the world cares little about the genocidal
predicament in Nigeria is best found in the following comment in the
BBC on January 8th:
“While President Goodluck Jonathan, who is seeking re-election next
month, has condemned the attack on a French satirical magazine in
Paris as dastardly, he has not commented on the violence at home,
our reporter says.” [ http://www.bbc.com/news/world-
africa-30728158 ]
Nigerians continue to tolerate their helplessly hopeless and clueless
leadership which regards them as little more than monkeys or
actually more worthless than. With a President who fails to secure
life and elevate local and global attention to out-of-its-control
genocides within the country, the colonialist ruled world conveniently
pretends not to notice.
There are next to no protests for the nation’s insensitive and
hopeless leader to resign or serious attempts to impeach the
President. Nigerians thus appear tolerant of the pogrom and as
insensitive and lacking of humanity as their leader… and the
hypocritical, pretentious world will not be bothered.
It is not likely much will be said or anything will change after this
massacre. Unless if by the ghosts of the dead
