An article titled 'Preventing Future Boko Haram Attacks', by Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Kulwant Singh and Dr. David Leffler,* has appeared in an ever-increasing number of publications since it was first released 21 May. To date the article has been published in nearly 100 locations worldwide.

The authors urge Nigerian leaders to immediately adopt the evidence-based approach of Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) as an effective, scientifically validated means to reduce social stress, violence, and terrorism, and create lasting peace in their country. IDT requires creating a Prevention Wing of the military—a small portion of the armed forces of a country practicing Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programs together morning and evening, which peer-reviewed, published scientific research has shown to reduce crime and armed conflict and create social coherence.

The greatest interest so far has come from news outlets based in Nigeria—43 of which have reprinted the entire article to date.

The full article has also appeared in African publications in Cameroon, Eritrea, Somalia, Ghana, and Liberia. It has also been published in India, Ireland, Israel, the USA, and the UK.

Twenty-six other African news sites have featured a short excerpt, linking to the whole article in other publications. One site did so four times in three days—including twice on the same day.

The article begins:

Violence and conflict have plagued mankind throughout history, and the terrorist attacks by Boko Haram are just a current manifestation. How can Nigeria protect itself from future attacks? Ideally, the best way to guard against emerging terrorist threats would be to have no enemies. No enemies = no terrorism! An unfamiliar but effective human resource-based approach called Invincible Defense Technology would help the military of Nigeria to begin creating a lasting peace by preventing such enemies from arising, both internally and externally. . . . [IDT's] adoption in Nigeria can set an example of peace-based defense for the rest of the world—something all military leaders would value.

Many publications have included two photos featured in the original article, showing large groups of military and security personnel practising Invincible Defense Technology, with the caption:
