What does the report say?
How did the Nigerian military respond?
It described the Nigerian military as “professional”, insisted the arrests were not arbitrary but “intelligence driven”, and said the military is engaged in a war in the north-east with terrorists “globally recognised for the most inhuman and callous attacks on humanity”.
Who are Boko Haram?
Founded in 2002, it launched its uprising against the Nigerian government in 2009 following the death of their leader in captivity. Boko Haram has since conducted a wave of abductions, assassinations and bombings.
