    Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari needs a comprehensive, not just military, plan to overthrow Boko Haram.

    Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari needs a comprehensive, not just military, plan to overthrow Boko Haram, experts said on Thursday, after the former army general swore to eradicate the Islamists.

    Buhari declared war on Boko Haram, vowing they "will soon know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation of terror and bring back peace."

    The group's attacks and suicide bombings in northeast Nigeria have claimed more than 13,000 lives since 2009.
