Nigeria Islamists better armed, motivated than army: governor

“Islamist militant group Boko Haram is better armed than the Nigerian military force fighting it, the governor of the region worst hit by the insurgency said on Friday after more than 100 people died in a village raid. President Goodluck Jonathan ordered extra troops into northeast Nigeria in May to crush Boko Haram, which wants to create an Islamic state in the largely Muslim north. The military denied it was less well armed than the insurgents.”
