Nigerian Security Chief Sees Boko Haram Government Link, FT Says

The Islamist group Boko Haram has links inside Nigeria’s government and may attack previously safe parts of the nation, the Financial Times reported, citing the country’s national security adviser.

General Owoye Azazi said attacks by the group, which killed hundreds of people in the last year, may happen anywhere and Boko Haram might have obtained assistance from al-Qaeda in the Maghreb, the newspaper reported.
