boko-haramLess than a week to the first anniversary of the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from Chibok in Borno State by Boko Haram sect, Amnesty International says its new report on Nigeria contains evidence of huge scale and depravity of human rights violation and war crimes by the terror group.
In a statement issued yesterday which was made available to Nigerian Pilot in Owerri, Imo State, Amnesty said that it will release the report on Boko Haram on April 14.
The report titled: “Our Job Is To Shoot, Slaughter And Kill: Boko Haram’s Reign Of Terror In North-East Nigeria,” the group documented war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the armed group.
It said the document provides evidence of the scale and depravity of Boko Haram’s human rights abuses, as well as detailed new information about the abduction of women and girls and the conditions faced by those abducted.
“The report catalogues serious human rights abuses which amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity and explores the way in which Boko Haram is structured, operates, recruits, organises and sustains itself, offering chilling insights into life in Boko Haram territories and camps.
“It also includes new satellite images offering evidence of the destruction left by Boko Haram as they retreated from the advancing Nigerian military in March 2015,” the group said.
