Reported Deaths from Riots and Protests

  • by

Mapicle (009): Between 2018 and 2020, Borno state had 6,626 reported deaths resulting from violence, attacks, armed clashes, abductions, etc. Typical right?

However; there were ZERO reported deaths related to riots/protests within the same time period!

My hypothesis: the level of insecurity in Borno state hasn’t encouraged as many public protests as other parts of the country; hence the “0” recorded fatalities.
