FILE - In this Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2013 file photo, Habiba Saadu, right, 48, a member of the vigilante force dubbed the Civilian JTF, searches a woman under her veil at a check point in Maiduguri, Nigeria. In an area of Nigeria where an Islamic insurgency has caught fire, security forces are carrying out night raids in residential neighborhoods and have arrested many people. Saadu’s two sons and her daughter were taken Aug. 3 by soldiers who went from house to house in a night raid in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, accusing them of participating in the uprising by Boko Haram, an armed Islamic group that has been waging a bloody war in Africa’s most populous nation for four years.
