Nigerian Governor: Boko Haram Better Armed Than Military

A Nigerian state governor says militant group Boko Haram is “better armed and better motivated” than government forces trying to stop their attacks.

Borno state governor Kashim Shettima spoke to reporters late Monday in the capital, Abuja, two days after suspected Boko Haram fighters killed more than 100 people in the Borno village of Izge.

The governor said, “Given the present state of affairs, it is absolutely impossible for us to defeat Boko Haram.”
