It's been three years since 276 school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram in the Nigerian town of Chibok. The search operations are still going on and the families are still waiting to #BringBackOurGirls.
A Boko Haram ambush on an oil survey team and an ensuing battle with Nigerian security forces has left more than 50 people dead. Details are still emerging about exactly what happened.
Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have kidnapped 10 members of a geological research team from the University of Maiduguri in northeast Nigeria, according to a statement from the state oil company.
Authorities are attempting to counter the Boko Haram insurgency by offering an allowance to parents who send their children to school. It comes amid reports some familes are 'donating' their daughters to the insurgency.
One of the kidnapped Chibok girls has escaped after being held captive for more than three years by Boko Haram Islamists. Her escape means that 107 of the 219 schoolgirls kidnapped in April 2014 are now free.
