Boko Haram terrorists continue their violent attacks and human rights abuses against civilians in north-east Nigeria and neighbouring countries, the Security Council was told on Monday.

The terrorists threatened to intensify their activities during general elections that were held over the weekend.

The group recently pledged allegiance to the so-called ISIL extremists who have carried out atrocities in Iraq and Syria.
