The Executive Dean, College of Criminal Justice and Security at the University of Phoenix, Major Gen. James ?Spider? Marks, has said that the growing insecurity and pogrom in the North-eastern part of Nigeria is not a priority to the United States of America.

Marks, who retired after 30 years of service in the US Army, said this in an interview on CNN, which has since gone viral.

Responding to questions on why over 40 world leaders including about four million people took to the streets in France when 17 people were killed by terrorists recently, whereas during the same period, over 2,000 people were allegedly massacred in Baga, Borno State without any global outcry, the ex-military general maintained that Nigeria and the entire black Africa was not a priority for the US.

He explained: ?The stack difference is that while world leaders are in complete solidarity and outrage against what happened in France vis-?-vis Nigeria. Truly, that should be surprising because what is happening in Nigeria is real madness, but it is not a priority.

?The United States can do anything it needs to do to rid Nigeria of Boko Haram, it could be a long-term effort, but it can be done. The US has the capability, we have all the elements and power, but it is not a priority.?
