Vigilante Groups Buy Arms to Fight Boko Haram

There are strong indications that more Nigerians in the North are resorting to self help by taking up arms against the terrorist group, Boko Haram. Members of vigilante groups in the region are said to be procuring small arms.

The groups are different from the Volunteer Vigilance Youths’ Group, popularly known as the ‘Civilian JTF,’ which is modelled after the multi-service Joint Task Force formed to tackle the insurgency.

The vigilante groups, made up residents of villages that suffer frequent attacks by Boko Haram, are said to be gathering weapons with which to prevent their territories from further attacks by the sect.
