Suspected Boko Haram detainees overpowered guards at a prison in Abuja near the Presidential villa; 21 people were reportedly killed during the jailbreak, including at least one guard. About 20 of the detainees are said to have been rearrested. The governor of Adamawa state blamed President Jonathan for failing to suppress the Boko Haram insurgency. The military claimed that 2,000 Boko Haram militants were killed during a government offensive in the Sambisa forest over the weekend; about 20 soldiers are missing, due to an “operational misunderstanding.” The former governor of Zamfara state said the so-called Fulani herdsmen in Benue, Nasarawa, and other northern states are “actually terrorists in disguise” who work in groups and are armed with sophisticated weapons.
