BOKO HARAM KILLED 815 NIGERIANS

An International Human Rights Group,
Human Rights
Watch (HRW), said that 815 Nigerians were killed between January and
August by the Boko Haram sect.

The Africa director of the group said "Spiraling Violence: Boko Haram Attacks and
Security Force Abuses in Nigeria," on Thursday.

"In the first nine months of 2012 alone, more than
815 people died in some 275 suspected attacks by
the group.
"This is more than the figure recorded in 2010 and
2011 combined, " he said.
Bekele said that since 2009, hundreds of attacks by
the sect have left more than 1,500 people dead,
according to media reports monitored by his group.

He said that a total of 211 police officer have been killed by Boko haram.

"Instead of abusive tactics that only add to the toll,
the authorities should prosecute without delay those
responsible for such serious crimes.
"The unlawful killing by both Boko Haram and
Nigerian security forces only grows worse; both sides
need to halt this downward spiral, ", Bekele said.

He advised the government to take urgent
measures to address the alleged human rights
abuses.
