Boko Haram militants have killed dozens of people and burned down homes in the northeast Nigerian town of Baga in the past two days according to latest report from Reuters News Agency,
"I escaped with my family in the car after seeing how Boko Haram was killing people ... I saw bodies in the street. Children and women, some were crying for help," Mohamed Bukar told Reuters after fleeing to the state capital Maiduguri.
The insurgency has been responsible for more than 10,000 people last year, according to a count by the Council on Foreign Relations in November. Elections in this troubled nation are to be held in February this year and President Goodluck Jonathan is seeking a new term in the office. Many girls are still being held captive by Boko Haram and no one knows their fate as of now.
