Background of the conflict
Nigeria is not just a zone of violent conflict in 1967 — 1970 years, there was a fierce war civilian clothes (war for the independence of Biafra) during which were killed about 2 million people. The country has a mass of various armed gangs. In 2001, 2008, beginning of 2011, there were large inter-ethnic and religious conflicts.
Nigeria just "boiling pot" problems, which are a huge part of them left the colonial policy of London, which was a colony of the area: 250-300 peoples and tribes that approximately 40% of Christians and Muslims, others profess pagan beliefs, or a mixture of Christianity and idolatry. Many of the town divided into Muslim and Christian areas.
The main premise of conflict: inter-religious conflicts, the impact of Western countries and companies that are interested in the resources of Nigeria and are not interested in a nationally targeted elite. A role playing clan interests — the question of access to the "trough."
Among other prerequisites causing social discontent — a high level of corruption, poor infrastructure. The actual division of the people to have access to the "manger" (hydrocarbons) — "new Nigerians" who live in luxury in secure cottage with all the criteria of life in European standards and all the other different degrees poor (over 70%). Weight related problems — a large infant mortality, HIV, low life expectancy, etc.

Inciting unrest in the oil-exporting countries, will lead to the upcoming increase in oil prices, lowering the euro zone. Shards of Nigeria's easier to fit into the New World Order.
