Northern Nigeria apparently showing aggressive persecution from radical Islam

Today I saw a poster ad on the Washington DC Metro mentioning violence in northern Nigeria against Christians by a group called “Martyr for Muslim Belief” (as a recall).  The website “persecution” mentions a group called Boko Haram. The applicable stories on their blog seem to be here. I wasn't in a good position to photo it without rudeness.  

Nigeria is said to have passed a Uganda-style anti-gay law, but it's not clear whether it comes from Islamic or radical evangelical forces. 
It’s interesting to see this ad so soon after a major piracy incident off the west Nigeria coast and reports that American crew were taken ashore.  Little media coverage has occurred in the past week.
