Nigerian Islamists Boko Haram have seized control of a police academy in northern Nigeria.
According to the BBC News, "Northern Nigeria's riot police training academy has been overrun by Boko Haram Islamist militants, a witness in Borno state has told the BBC. Shots were heard after the militants arrived in three armoured vehicles and on dozens of motorcycles, he said."
Boko Haram is becoming more powerful and overtaking much of the region.
As reported by BBC, "A police spokesman confirmed the attack while a senior security source said it had not been possible to communicate with the academy since Wednesday. The Liman Kara college is near Gwoza town, seized by Boko Haram this month."
Nigeria is poised for severe civil unrest.
