How 1,500 died since January—Amnesty
Amnesty International on Sunday released a report that says at least 1,500 people, most of them civilians, were killed from January to date because of Boko Haram attacks and reprisals by security forces. The single deadliest day, according to the report, was March 14, the day that insurgents attacked the Giwa Barracks in Maiduguri, Borno State. Amongst the testimony gathered by Amnesty International were the voices of witnesses who described what happened when the military found 56 of those who had escaped from the Giwa barracks.
