Report revealed that no fewer than 672 children were killed in Nigeria as a result of bomb explosions in 2017, especially by the Boko Haram insurgents in the North-East region of the country.

The report was released by Save the Children, a non-governmental organisation, noting that Nigeria was the fourth deadliest country with child casualties resulting from explosions, after Afghanistan, Yemen and Syria respectively.
The 24 pages report discusses the impact of explosive weapons on children in conflict.

The report read in part, " Across five of the deadliest conflicts for children in 2017, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Nigeria and Iraq, we can see that of the 7,364 children killed or maimed in conflict in 2017, at least 5,322 were linked to explosions. Armed conflicts around the world are exacting a devastating toll on children. In 2017, nearly a fifth of all children were living close to conflict-with 142 million children living near areas of intense fighting. In the world's worst modern conflicts, children are exposed to explosive weapons-rockets, mortars, grenades, mines and improvised explosive devices..

" In Afghanistan, 2,216 were killed or maimed in explosions out of a total 3,179, in Yemen, 814 were killed out of a total 1,316, and Syria, 1,058 out of a total 1,271. In Nigeria, 672 children were killed out of a total 881 children, who represent 76 percent"

" Our key findings include; children are more likely to die following explosion injuries than adults. Two, children re overwhelmingly likely to experience head injuries which is a significant cause of death in young children"
