I would say that the fact that Muslims in the north are completely marginalized by the Christian government in the south and the Nigerian government response to Boko Haram has been extremely heavy handed are the biggest factors for the group gaining strength.

Most Nigerian Muslims don't like Boko Haram, but they are seen as a lesser of two evils because of the way they have been treated by the government.
