Boko Haram carried out one of it's most deadly attacks on the Nigerian people last week, killing up to 2,000 civilians. Gallup reports that Nigerian confidence in elections is dim as well: "As Nigerians prepare to head to the polls in February for the fifth time since their country returned to civilian rule in 1999, only 13% express confidence in the honesty of elections". Frustration over the Nigerian government's response to the Boko Haram insurgency adds to the low confidence. Nigerian soldiers are often ill-equipped against the Islamic militants.
