Boko Haram uses complex assault to attack major Nigerian city
Nigeria's military has not been effective in dealing with the Boko Haram insurgency. The illiterate religious bigots of Boko Haram have been especially brutal with civilians and the Nigerian military has been accused of being brutal with the insurgents. There appears to be no coordinated effort to protect the people with the exception of a few militia. The people lack weapons to defend themselves and the military and the police are clearly inadequate to the task.
