Amidst international protests and solidarity marches standing with the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo, a single man holds a placard that reads “I am Charlie, let’s not forget the victims of Boko Haram” in French. He stands outside the French embassy in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast and is the most populated West African French-speaking city.

He is expressing the frustration of many Africans, following what is being called the most lethal terrorist attack in history of the Boko Haram terror group.

The Paris attack on Charlie Hebdo left 17 dead. But the most lethal terror attack from the Boko Haram group in Nigeria, right around the same time, received relatively little mainstream media attention, even though over 2,000 are dead.

Amnesty International says that this is at the very least, Boko Haram’s “deadliest massacre so far.”

To complicate matters, journalists have been repeatedly targeted by Boko Haram, – but they have not received the international support that Charlie Hebdo employees have.

On Twitter, Max Abrahms tweeted: “It’s shameful how the 2K people killed in Boko Haram’s biggest massacre gets almost no media coverage.”

Similar sentiments came from musician Nitin Sawhney, who said: “Very moving watching events in Paris – wish the world media felt equally outraged by this recent news too.”

Would this be an appropriate use of the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag? Where is the media? Where is the social media outrage?
