At least 350,000 civilians have been killed in Nigeria in Boko Haram-linked violence in under twelve years, a United Nations report said Friday.

ABUJA — At least 350,000 citizens have been killed in Nigeria in Boko Haram-linked violence in under twelve years, a United Nations report said Friday — with 90 percent of children.

“The full human cost of the war is much greater, Already, many more have died from the indirect effects of the conflict,” said the report by the Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

U.N. monitors recorded at least 350,000 civilian casualties as a result of the conflict between 2009 and 2021, with close to two million people who fled their homes in three North-East states.
