Adamawa villagers today killed 70 Boko Haram men searching for food

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, no fewer than 70
members of Boko Haram were killed today May 16th by members of a
vigilante group in the Madagali town of Adamawa state and captured seven alive who they handed over to the police. 
 
The vigilantes reportedly acted after they were tipped off by a local food
vendor that the militants were coming to get food before heading out for
a major operation to raid villages in the area, usually carried out at
night.
 
With this information, the vigilantes mobilized, laid ambush and patiently waited for the men of the sect. The men, numbering about 100, showed up later at night to pick up their meal and that was when the vigilantes attacked them, killing most and arresting the ones that survived the assault. Continue…

Today’s attack is reportedly the second time this week that local vigilantes have defeated Boko Haram men. A security source told SaharaReporters that resident in
many remote areas in the North seem to have decided that the best
way to repel incessant attacks by Boko Haram
insurgents was to take matters into their own hands.

A vigilante member involved in today’s ambush told a Sahara Reporters correspondent that Nigerian soldiers appear unable or unwilling to wage
an effective war against the insurgents.

“They (soldiers) seem to be
helpless and to fear the Boko Haram warriors who terrorize us here. But
we are not afraid. They are men like us. And we are tired of folding up
our hands and allowing them to kill us, to kill our wives and to kill
our children.”
