The outlawed group Boko Haram, which has been terrorizing populations in Nigeria has changed its tactics following recent military successes by the Nigerian authorities; that's according to the UN's most senior representative in the West African country.

The government has pledged to defeat Boko Haram by the end of the year, but the group continues to carry out attacks.

Opia Mensah Kumah is the Resident Representative for the UN Development programme (UNDP) in Nigeria.

Daniel Dickinson began by asking him for his assessment of the current threat of Boko Haram.
