An average of 500 innocent Nigerians are killed monthly by government security agencies, Fulani insurgents and Boko Haram terrorists, according to the International Society for Civil Liberties & The Rule of Law (Intersociety).

The ugly trend, the group said through its Board Chairman Emeka Umeagbalasi, has persisted since June 2015 – the first full month of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration that took the reins of power on May 29, 2015.

Umeagbalasi said in a document made available to News Express on Sunday that upwards of 15,000 defenseless civilians have been killed extra-judicially in the 31 months that Buhari, a retired Army General, has been in power. He said the figure was arrived at after painstaking research. Intersociety gave the breakdown as follows:

State Actor Generated Killings Outside The Law – 9,700

(1) Direct State Murders – 2,000

(1a) Defenceless Igbo-Biafran Activists and Supporters – 400

(2) Police Custodial and Captivity Killings – 7,750

(2b) Sub National or State Monthly Average – 7

(3) Non-State Actor Killings – 5,000 to 5,500
