Can Nigeria alone defeat armed groups?

A daring attack on a maximum security prison outside Nigeria's capital has laid bare its persistent struggles with insecurity.
ISIL's claimed responsibility for Tuesday's jailbreak, which freed more than 800 inmates.
About 400 prisoners are still on the run.
Among them: several commanders of ISIL and Boko Haram, two armed groups that have carried out a series of attacks across Nigeria.
The prison break is raising more doubts about the government's capacity to deal with spiralling insecurity.
Does Nigeria have the resources - and capabilities - to curb violence by armed groups without assistance?
