Nigerian Police Allege Youths Retaliate, Kill Officer

Youth members of a vigilante group killed a policeman and threatened others on Saturday in Northeast Nigeria, according to local police and military officials. AP reported that the attack was retaliation for the previous killing of another group member. Formed by residents in June to aid in the detaining of Boko Haram suspects, the Civilian Joint Task Force claims to have helped arrest thousands of Islamic insurgents.
