Northeastern Nigeria has been destabilized for over ten years by the insecurity caused by the armed insurgency of jihadist groups. This insecurity has a negative impact on young people: in a report published this Wednesday, May 27 and entitled “We have dried our tears; managing the consequences of the conflict on children in north-eastern Nigeria ", the NGO Amnesty International is investigating violence against young people, both by the jihadists and by the armed forces.

This investigation first evokes the brutality of Boko Haram. The jihadists regularly kidnap many young people like from high school girls in Chibok who are recruited as child soldiers, or forced brides, for adolescent girls. In jihadist-controlled areas, children are "victims of torture, and forced to witness executions in public," the report said.

This investigation also denounces violence committed by the army, which, according to Amnesty, places many young people in illegal detention and tortures them in barracks. Like that of Giwa and the Kainji military base, where young people who fled the violence mix with former combatants who have voluntarily gone to find civilian life. Amnesty International estimates that at least 10,000 people, many of them minors, died in detention during the conflict.

Nigeria's Nollywood gets creative in response to Covid-19

  Nigeria's Nollywood gets creative in response to Covid-19 As coronavirus closed businesses around the world and forced billions to stay home, Nigerian director Obi Emelonye came up with an innovative way to keep filming. Inspired by his wife's teleconferencing calls from their isolation in Britain, he wrote and put together a short feature about a couple separated between London and Lagos. There was just one day for rehearsals and two for filming, and relatives shot the actors on mobile phones in their homes on two continents. "I said to myself, 'What if I shoot a film remotely? I can direct my actors and produce it from home, and the cost is zero," the well-known 53-year-old director told AFP.

"The conditions in Giwa are so horrible that one could die," said a 14-year-old boy, quoted by Amnesty. "There is no place to lie down [...] It is hot, all the clothes were wet, as if we had been put in a river [...] So far, no one has told me why I was taken there, what I did, why I was in detention. I wonder why I fled [Boko Haram], "said the young man.

Finally, this investigation criticizes the reintegration program called "safety corridor". A program notably funded by the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States. According to Amnesty, the center in Gombe State, which aims to "de-radicalize" and "rehabilitate" former combatants, is like an "illegal place of detention", where young people and adults work without pay. It looks like "forced labor," the report said.

If these young people are not released and supported, warns Amnesty, it is "a whole generation which risks being sacrificed". The priority for northeastern Nigeria remains access to education, the report concluded.
