Five African countries will unite their efforts to try to put an end to Boko Haram’s terrorist attacks. The African Catholic agency Misna has announced that a regional plan to deploy 7,500 soldiers was approved on January 29, 2015 in Abbis-Abeba during an African Union summit.

The plan is to be carried out with contributions to the contingents from Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Benin. Boko Haram, the Sunnite movement aiming at establishing the Sharia in sub-Saharan Africa, is estimated to have between 6,000 and 30,000 warriors, essentially from Nigeria.
