Nigeria, cade l’ultima roccaforte di Boko Haram

I miliziani di Boko Haram sono stati cacciati ieri dall’ultimo accampamento della loro roccaforte nella foresta di Sambisa dall’esercito nigeriano. Lo ha annunciato il presidente della Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, in una nota citata dalla Bbc. “I terroristi sono in fuga e non hanno più un posto dove andare”, ha aggiunto il capo dello Stato.
Le forze nigeriane sono state impegnate nelle ultime settimane in una massiccia offensiva contro il gruppo jihadista nella foresta nello Stato nordorientale di Borno.

According to the global energy consultancy group Wood Mackenzie, Africas place as a significant producer and net exporter of oil in the world is forecast to grow to 15 percent by 2020 due to new discoveries in West Africa. Substantial growth potential exists in West Africa with 40 billion barrels of discovered but undeveloped reserves and 55 billion barrels of yet-to-find oil. Since the discovery of the Jubilee oil field in 2007, companies are exploring other parts of the region between Ghana to Mauritania, looking for analogous Cretaceous turbidite prospects. Offshore explorations in Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast are high potential areas for investment beyond that of Nigeria and Angola.  EPA/STR
