The Nigerian Army’s War with #BokoHaram (PBS Frontline)


http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/hunting-boko-haram/

This is a PBS documentary (also shown on Channel 4 in the UK) about the Nigerian army’s battle with Boko Haram. It contains very harrowing footage of suspects being allegedly killed by the army and their civilian allies the Civilian Joint Task Force.

Civilians are being caught in the crossfire of the war between Boko Haram and the army. After Boko Haram attacks, the army sweeps in and arrests suspects. Locals claim that innocent people are often arrested, beaten, and killed after Boko Haram fighters have left the scene:
