'The U.S. should be finding ways to engage with Boko Haram' 

Boko Haram, the militant Islamist group that has a foothold in northern Nigeria, has begun to consolidate control over large swathes of territory threatening the stability of Nigeria and its neighbors.
The militants have resorted to using female suicide bombers as they ramp up their fight against the Nigerian government ahead of elections in February. 
Bronwyn E. Bruton, deputy director of the Atlantic Council's Africa Center, attributes Boko Haram's rise to the Nigerian government's failure to deliver good governance and the atrocities committed by Nigerian security forces.
