Abstract

Despite the scale of violent attacks by bandits in northwestern Nigeria, the policy response has failed to acknowledge the significant and disproportionate impact on women and children. Adequate policy directives must conform with international humanitarian law, say Oluwole Ojewale and Omolara Balogun, and reinvigorate the Safe School Initiative programme to promote protected education.
