Nigeria: Nigeria declares massive military campaign against Boko Haram in three north states


Nigeria has announced a “massive deployment of men and resources” to combat Islamist militants in the country’s border territories.

A statement said the drive was aimed at “asserting the nation’s territorial integrity” and “enhancing security”.

On Tuesday President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in three north-eastern states after a series of deadly attacks by militant groups.

Fighters from the Boko Haram group are blamed for most of the violence.

The group, which has its roots in north-eastern Nigeria, is linked to bloodshed in which some 2,000 people have died since 2010.
