Boko HaramNigerian families awaiting promised help from the West to free hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped weeks ago by terrorists are blaming their own government for the failing to stop an Islamic group that struck again, killing as many as 300 Nigerians.

"People from northeast live in a region full of anarchy -- we have been killed, our children raped and kidnapped but the government is doing nothing about it," said Samson Iyke, a resident of Borno, the remote northern region where the girls were kidnapped.

"It's politics from the look of things because the government seems not to care about the plight of people from northern Nigeria," he added. "We have been forgotten, left unprotected simply because we belong to another political party."

The Nigerians offered a $300,000 reward for information leading to the rescue of the girls, who were dragged from a school April 14 and taken to a remote forest base.

On Wednesday, NIgerian officials confirmed that Islamists killed as many as 300 people in the town of Gamboru Ngala, on Nigeria's border with Cameroon. ThisDay newspaper reported that the terrorists fired into crowds of people at a busy market Monday night.
