The main highlight of the Boko Haram attacks was the capture of 276 girls, now known as the 'Chibok Girls' from a Secondary School in Borno
The scourge of the Boko Haram militancy has hit new heights with reports concerning an attack on a boy at a camp for Internally Displaced People (IDP) in Borno by his peers.
According to Linda Ikeji's Blog, he was saved after a quick intervention of an adult who was able to stop the attack before it became fatal.
A Twitter user, 'Dan Borno' shared pictures of the boy with comments.
According to him, the children at the camp would need an orientation as their long capture at the hands of the militants might have affected them negatively based on the violence they were exposed to in captivity.
Boko Haram started as an Islamic movement in 2002, which later transformed into a violent uprising in July 2009 with attacks on Muslims and Christians alike even though the latter are supposed to be the group's target, as they represented the idea of western civilisation which the group are strongly opposed to.
