Boko Haram on a rampage (part 2)

Remember Nigeria's Bring Back Our Girls campaign? Well, it's now been more than two months. Not only are the more than 200 abducted schoolgirls still missing, but attacks blamed on the Islamist radicals of Boko Haram only seem to be increasing. This week alone, there's been the claim of a fresh kidnapping of dozens in a village in north-eastern Borno State, a suicide bombing at a medical college in Kano and attacks around Kaduna. And this Wednesday, a blast has hit the capital Abuja.
