Boko Haram attack latest

Boko Haram wants to create a hardline Islamic state in northern Nigeria. But the terrorist group has been pushed out of captured towns and territories since February 2015 with assistance from Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
The six-year conflict between Nigeria and Boko Haram has claimed the lives of 15,000 people and made more than 1.5 million people homeless.
