A ceasefire and peace talks with Boko Haram are still stalled over the Islamic radical demands for releasing jailed members and other forms of compensation first. Meanwhile, the civilians in the north are caught between the terrorist tactics used by both Boko Haram and the army. Boko Haram will kill anyone seen talking to the soldiers and the soldiers will beat or kill people who refuse to provide information about the Islamic terrorists, Young men are at risk of being killed on the spot if suspected of being a Boko Haram member. Civilians suffer the most from the bombings and that is apparently why Boko Haram is turning more to death squads that shoot their victims, at least in the Moslem north.
