The constant media-stopper of 2014, Boko Haram’s ingloriousness is no novel to the country of Nigeria. However, with lamentableness, Amnesty International stated that under the bane of this heinous jihadi, the past 2014 had snatched somewhat 2,000 women and girls from Nigeria.
Girls seized 365 days back are not yet back, and to mark the rueful 1st Anniversary, Amnesty released “Boko Haram’s reign of terror”. Not only abduction, it documented the whole inhumane episode Boko Haram played in 2014, including the bloodshed of 5,550 civilians.

Face to face talk with the administrators of NGO narrated of regular execution of men and boys, while, abduction, rape, and imprisonment of girls and women. To top, some are impelled to marry and participate in the armed attacks of their own towns.

What sends chills to one’s spine is the other half that explained how frequently she was raped in those three months duration. She lamented that those in defiance to Islamic conversion and mass killing, were cemented in graves.
