At least 611 teachers have been deliberately killed and a further 19,000 have been forced to flee since 2009.

President Muhammadu Buhari pledged to tackle the Boko Haram insurgency and to develop Nigeria’s northeast during his election campaign in 2015.
His government will need to take urgent steps to address the insurgency, particularly the education challenge. In September 2015, the government announced the merging of various presidential initiatives to improve the delivery of services to victims of Boko Haram’s violence, including the Victims Support Fund, and the Presidential Initiative on the North East.
Some of these assaults likely amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The report also examines government security forces’ use of schools for military purposes, which not only places schools at risk of attack but is contrary to the Safe Schools Declaration, which Nigeria endorsed in 2015.
