  • Nigerian Military Says It Killed Hundreds Of Boko Haram Fighters In Run-Up To Elections

    The Nigerian military has killed 300 fighters in the past week from Islamist group Boko Haram in the run-up to the country’s presidential elections.

    The elections were postponed until March 28, after the leader of Boko Haram, AbuBakar Shekau, said it would not be a peaceful process in a video reportedly released by the group.

    “Allah will not leave you to proceed with these elections even after us, because you are saying that authority is from people to people, which means that people should rule each other, but Allah says that the authority is only to him, only his rule is the one which applies on this land,” Shekau said.

    The military released photos of the captured militants and weapons from the offensive.
