The Nigerian navy will set up an operation base along the Lake Chad Basin to ramp up its fight against Islamist militants, Chief of Naval Staff Vice Admiral Ibot-Ete Ekwe Ibas told reporters Monday in Maiduguri, Borno State.

Nigeria, its regional neighbors and global partners such as the U.S., U.K., France and the European Union met earlier this month to address Boko Haram violence that has displaced more than two million people in the northeast region. The group’s seven-year fight to impose its version of Sharia, or Islamic law, has killed thousands and caused at least $9 billion in damage, according to government estimates.

When a team of top flight media practitioners -- journalists, marketers, sales directors; indeed, the entire mix -- met on January 5, 2014, to review media practice in Nigeria, a conclusion became ineluctable: We must stop identifying the weaknesses of the items on offer and give Nigerians the real deal. The Morning Mail was thus born, to give the country a newspaper that is truly committed to the highest ideals of journalism. It is yet an evolving newspaper, but it is currently being piloted by Oluyinka Olujimi (LL.M UCLan, L.B., B.L.) as Publisher/CEO; respected ace cartoonist and administrator, Moses Ebong, as Executive Director (Brands and Marketing); and veteran political editor, Akinjide Akintola (Managing Editor), among others.
