Since July 2014, the northern Nigerian city of Kano was six times under attacks of the islamist faction Boko Haram. The assault of the 17th of September killed 15 people and wounded 35. These deadly actions are reflects of a daily violence that Nigerian government is unable to cut down. Second largest Nigerian city by population and local capital, Kano is a major strategic target for Boko Haram that seeks to spread its inflence. The city embodies tensions between Abudja’s government, located in the Christian south, and northern areas with majority Muslim population and that jihadists try to rise up.
If the last Kano slaughter was committed in the name of the « rejection of Western education » from which is entitled Boko Haram, the whole society is insidiously eaten up, and the advancement of Boko Haram’s ideology can be daily noticed. For instance, the islamic faction forbids – ”haram”- vaccination campaigns against polio. Some families as Mallam Salisu’s one deny any kind of aid. All together, Nigeria is one of the last areas in the world where poliomyélite is breaking out.
