Background

Since 2009, Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon, include planting bombs in public places, abducting women and girls, forcefully conscripting young men and boys, and destroying villages and towns.

The effects of this violence have been widespread, and the need for urgent humanitarian assistance is escalating.
