2,256 others were abducted across the country from December 2021 to June 15, 2022.
The figures were obtained from daily incidents recorded by the Nigeria Security Tracker, a project of the Council on Foreign Relations, an American think-tank, during the period under review.
The data captured by correspondents included those killed by non-state actors such as terrorists, bandits, gunmen, armed robbers, cultists and security operatives, among others.
A monthly breakdown showed that in December 2021, no fewer than 342 innocent Nigerians were killed while 397 others were abducted. Those killed in the month included 45 farmers in Nasarawa. Also, 34 women were abducted in Zamfara
