Villagers kill scores of militants in Nigeria

Standard

Nigerian villagers have killed scores of militants in what could be an independent reprisal for the kidnapping of over 200 schoolgirls by Boko Haram militants.The killings occurred during an ambush in the western state of Borno, where Boko Haram operates. Several militants were also detained by villagers.Reports say the villagers suspected that the militants were preparing to launch a new attack against civilians in the area.Details of the incident are not known as of yet, but villagers in Borno have reportedly formed self-defense groups to take the matters in their own hands, because the Nigerian military is not doing enough to stem militant attacks.
