The interest of the Chadian rebel strongman in dirty arms deal in the region might have been the sustenance of the blood bath going on there and some of Nigerian northeastern states.

Inherent Danger and Fears of Whistle-blowers
The seeming unending debate of Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket in Nigeria by concerned citizens and elder statesmen is an indication that some forces are really at work  to divide the country across religious lines.
