Yes, Boko Haram is an Islamist group from Nigeria. You need to remind your co-workers that all religious groups have extremists and that the boko haram do not represent Islam as a whole. Examples of other extremist/terrorist groups (quoted from Wikipedia) are

The National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT), a rebel group operating in Tripura, North-East India, has been described as engaging in terrorist violence motivated by their Christian beliefs.[13] It is classified by the National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism as one of the ten most active terrorist groups in the world, and has been accused of forcefully converting people to Christianity.

Kach (Hebrew: כ"ך‎) was a far-right political party in Israel. Founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane in the early 1970s, and following his Jewish nationalist ideology (subsequently dubbed Kahanism), the party entered the Knesset in 1984 after several electoral failures. However, it was barred from participating in the next election in 1988 under the revised Knesset Elections Law banning parties that incited racism. After Kahane's assassination in 1990, the party split, with Kahane Chai (Hebrew: כהנא חי‎, lit. Kahane Lives) breaking away from the main Kach faction. The party was also barred from standing in the 1992 election, and both organisations were banned outright in 1994. Today both groups are considered terrorist organisations by Israel, Canada, the European Union and the United States.

The Bajrang Dal is a hardline Hindu organization in India, is the youth wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and is based on the ideology of Hindutva. Founded on 1 October 1984 in Uttar Pradesh, India, it has since spread throughout India. The group claims to have 1,300,000 members.

Aum Shinrikyo (currently known as Aleph) is a Japanese cult, listed as a terrorist organization by several countries. The group was founded by Shoko Asahara in 1984. The group gained international notoriety in 1995, when it carried out the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway.

Stay strong in your faith and remain a good example for others.

Im seek of boko haram. How could you imagine some people putting bombs in their body, bombing schools, churchs, police station, army barrack going house to house even my school is affected killing 4 profs and many graduateing studeng, and even killing the innocent muslims saying that they want to establish Islamic law. Do they think their sucide bombers are going to janna no, Insha Allah they are going to jahanam. Must you bomb their churchs before you can establish islamic law. They allow the christain abusing the prophet and islam calling the muslim terorise. Last time when a plane crash in lagos the christain says is another way of boko haram when a baby was born with Quran in lagos they called in boko haram. Boko haram means western education is forbided but they are using the morden technology to carry out their evil killing saying it is for Allah sake. They even kill my friend father who is a muslim. And any person who kill a muslim is like him killing the whole humanity and also sucide is forbidden but they do it hoping to enter janna may Allah punish them all. But im not scale of that because the prophet says when the last day comes all such of things will be seen and that islam will be divided into 73 sect but only 1 sect will enter paradise that is the sect that follows the Quran and the Hadith and the other 72 sect will be punished. May Allah make us among the 1 sect of the Prophet sallahu alahim wasalam.
