Zeid to Human Rights Council: “Boko Haram retains capacity to cause significant harm”

For six years, the extremist group Boko Haram has fought a campaign of terror in northern Nigeria. Boko Haram, that recently pledged allegiance to the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant, is now crossing borders to attempt to form its own caliphate grouping the countries of the Lake Chad Basin.

UN Human Rights Chief Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein told the Human Rights Council that the coalition of armies in the region that are fighting to push back Boko Haram must do so in total respect for international humanitarian and human rights law.

“As the Nigerian Government and regional forces continue to gain territory, I believe it is time to give proper consideration to the need for a profound policy response that is grounded in the need for accountability and reconciliation, with measures to promote socio-economic rights and improve governance,” he said.
