Boko Haram crisis has claimed 11,000 lives in Nigeria ? Report
« on: October 07, 2014, 10:56:05 AM »

No fewer than 11,000 people have been killed since the Boko Haram sect unleashed its attacks on Nigeria, in 2007, the Nigeria Social Violence Dataset has said in a report.

According to the reports, the rate of casualties, internal displacement, social disruption and government failure are stirring a widespread crisis, which spilled over the borders of neighbouring states such as Niger, Cameroon and Chad.

The latests dataset compiled at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), showed that the Boko Haram-related onsluaght is the most challanging conflict that Nigeria has confronted in recent times.

The report said that since 1998, at least 29,600 Nigerians have been killed in more than 2,300 incidents, reflecting a wide range of ethnic, religious, political and economic tensions across large portions of the country.

?The conflict is rapidly intensifying. We estimate that 7,000 people died in incidents related to the insurgency between July 2013 and June 2014, compared with fewer than 1,900 in the preceding year. These deaths account for more than a quarter of all the recorded deaths in the past 15 years.

?Since January, more than 5,000 people have died, making the past eight months almost as deadly as the preceding five years?, it said.
