‘Boko Haram has killed 3,500 in 2015’

Amnesty International (AI), has released a report, where it was revealed that Boko Haram had killed at least 3,500 people since the beginning of 2015.

AI stated that despite the successes by the military, attacks by Boko Haram in Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger had claimed the lives of at least 1,600 people since the start of June.

AI disclosed this in a statement put out on Wednesday.

“The number of people killed so far this year is truly shocking with more than 3,500 civilian fatalities in less than 300 days,” said  Amnesty International’s Africa Director for Research and Advocacy, Netsanet Belay.

“Governments in affected countries must take all necessary legal measures to ensure the security of civilians in affected areas.”


“Following the publication of an Amnesty International report on June 3, President Buhari pledged to investigate evidence that Nigerian military forces have committed serious human rights violations, war crimes and acts which may constitute crimes against humanity. To date, no investigation has begun.

“It is nearly four months to the day since President Buhari vowed to investigate the serious crimes under international law which Amnesty International highlighted in its report,adding that thousands of victims were still waiting for justice.”
