According to a local group of hunters in the town of Mubi in northeastern Nigeria, 35 people died when a roadside bomb exploded in the town. The bomb was planted near a meeting of the local hunters, who have joined forces with the government in the fight against Boko Haram. The meeting also had several army men who were planning how to defend the town from the militants.
Mubi was under Boko Haram control since last month; however, the military were able to get the town back on November 13th, with the help of the local hunters. Boko Haram has become a very big headache for the Nigerian government. The organization has been spreading terror for the past 5 years and has already committed many atrocities.
Their goal is to establish Sharia law in the country and they have already killed over 13,000 people in their bid to achieve that goal, and thousands more have been forced out of their homes. The government is facing strong criticism because of its inability to end the reign of terror of these Islamist militants.
