Nigerian civilians kill 200 Boko Haram militants

Nigerian people have organized self-defense detachments to fight militants from the Boko Haram organization. The detachments have already killed 200 militants.

A military conflict between the self-defense detachments and the militants occurred in Kala/Balge, Borno State, at the border with Cameroon. The militia managed to foresee Boko Haram's attack and seize the militants' arms and transport.

The term Boko Haram means "Westernization is a sin." Terrorists from this organization usually attack schools. In mid April they kidnapped more than 270 schoolgirls from a lycée in the town of Shibok. The terrorists said that they were ready to sell them as slaves or marry them off. Boko Haram followers want to create an Islamic state in the north of Nigeria.
