The Nigerian army is finally engaging Boko Haram at Baga in Borno state, southeast of the capital.
Boko Hraram massacred Baga this January killing over 3000 civilians in a major holocaust.
The people of the town are anxiously waiting to hear of its liberation.
The Jonathan administration finally decided to address Boko Haram after it saw an election defeat imminent; since then the Nigerian army has been sent to liberate captured towns and villages that have remained under Boko Haram control for months to years.
