Thankfully, accusations leveled against the band are due to a simple mix-up with their name and that of the terrorist organisation Boko Haram, which has kidnapped the Nigerian schoolgirls and young women from a centre of education.
Meanwhile, the BBC are considering a British re-make of a speech made by America's First Lady about the kidnappings. For more information on such "translantication", click here.
