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.
The NGO's latest report says the Nigerian military continues to detain thousands of children in "inhuman conditions." Allegedly, the minors collaborated with Boko Haram.
Five years after the kidnapping of 276 girls from Chibok, many schools in northeastern Nigeria are still not safe. Student numbers have dropped and education is still suffering under the threat of Boko Haram.
A regional militia in Nigeria has freed 900 children involved in the fight against Islamist Boko Haram insurgents, the UN says. UNICEF says children have been among the worst-hit by the decade-long conflict.
The resurgence of attacks by Boko Haram in parts of northeastern Nigeria has raised concerns that the jihadist group is far from being vanquished. Security experts are now urging a change in counter-insurgency measures.
