Boko Haram has up to 6,000 ‘hardcore’ fighters, claims US intelligence

“The Islamist militant group Boko Haram has about 4,000-6,000 ‘hardcore’ fighters, US intelligence officials have said.

In an assessment of the group, whose five-year uprising including massacres and kidnappings has spread from Nigeria into neighbouring countries, the officials said they did not believe it posed major threat to Nigeria’s oilfields.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the militants were believed to be still holding 300 schoolgirls they kidnapped last year and had dispersed them to multiple locations.”
