Boko Haram reportedly breaks cease-fire, abducts women

Despite having agreed upon a cease-fire, Boko Haram has reportedly kidnapped more young women in Nigeria. The militant Islamist group kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls in April, prompting the #BringBackOurGirls campaign. This time, officials are reporting that about 60 women were abducted. We’ll discuss the growing threat Boko Haram poses in Nigeria with Clement Adibe, a professor of political science at DePaul University.
