Islamophobic Gun-Wielding Maniacs Kill 200 Boko Haram Scholars

Just kidding on the headline. Boko Haram invaded three towns. While the towns suffered grievous casualties and massive destruction of property, they did fight back, and killed 200 of the Boko Haram maniacs.

Incidentally, they say the government is doing nothing to protect them.

Residents of three villages in northeastern Nigeria took security into their own hands this week, repelling attacks by Boko Haram insurgents and killing more than 200 of them, residents and officials said. ...

In the three villages attacked Tuesday, gunmen arrived in dozens of all-terrain vans, armored tanks and motorcycles, but villagers quickly mobilized and engaged the attackers in a prolonged battle.

...

Locals seized an armored tank, three all-terrain vans and 90 motorcycles from the attackers, residents said.

...

It was the second defeat Boko Haram has suffered from locals in the area in over a month.

Scores of Boko Haram gunmen were killed by villagers in early April in a foiled raid, residents said.

Video of the link. I can't quote the whole thing, obviously, but it's worth reading to see the Nigerian military's defensive bullshit about why they can't protect citizens -- they furthermore go so far as to call the fight against Boko Haram "vigilantism."

They say that the citizens were only able to defend themselves because they had prior warning.

One wonders if they contacted the Nigerian military to pass this warning along -- surely they would, right?

So why were they left to fight for themselves?

Although I'm framing this as a success, Boko Haram killed 300 villagers before they were repelled.

One wonders what their intended bodycount would have been had they prevailed.
