IN FIGURES: All Boko Haram attacks in 2015

IN FIGURES: All Boko Haram attacks in 2015

Three days more and Year 2015 will be a done deal. But for weeks and months to come, it will be impossible to reminisce on the year without remembering the string of Boko Haram attacks on mosques, churches, political rallies, schools and internally displaced persons’ camps, which killed thousands of people.

From 2009 to 2015, the insurgents put a halt to more than 30,000 lives – innocent civilians full of dreams of their own, dreams that could have been useful to the country’s match to development.

In its 2015 campaign, the sect succeeded in killing over 4,000 Nigerians, very conservative approximate figures have shown.

Prior to the ascension of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, Boko Haram killed 2,351 people within Nigeria’s borders.

Since Buhari took power, the sect has killed 2,429 people within our territories, as the Nigerian military continues battling to finish off the sect.

The 2015 record is an improvement on the 2014 calendar, where the sect was reported by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) to have killed 6,347 civilians.

While compiling these figures – from news reports, government sources (NEMA, SEMA, Nigerian military) – it was observed that the sect rarely attacked once a day.

Once there was a first attack, a second or third was just a few minutes or hours away. This was most evident in the October 15/16 attacks, where Maiduguri was bombed five times in 24 hours.

In January 2015, the sect had a couple of attacks, notable amongst which was an audacious attack on Maiduguri, after Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign train left the state. No deaths were reported across the month, with the military’s advance on the sect.

The deadliest day of the year was on February 1, few days before from the initial date for the 2015 presidential election.

In series of attacks by Boko Haram and its confrontations with the military, a total of 527 persons were said to have lost their lives, 82 of which were civilians – killed in a single attack.
