Focused in Northern Nigeria, the insurgent terrorist group Boko Haram targets non-Muslims as well as fellow Muslims and Christians to enforce their interpretation of Islam: Wahabbism. Their tactics include arson, vandalism, assassination, murder, and bombings. In the global war on terrorism, they are associated with the Islamic groups al Qaeda Central and al Qaeda in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). See Threat Assessment Chad and Nigeria, and articles on Arson / Fire Bombings as a Terrorist Tactic, Jihadist Terrorist Groups - Religious (Islamic), and Suicide Missions (Bombers) as a Terrorist Tactic. Although Boko Haram's and Ansura split in 2012, their ties remain murky. in April 2013 a Boko Haram spokesman announced "They (Ansaru) are with us now. Whenever we hear of oppression, we do operations together."
