Violence Against Children in Nigeria: Findings from a National Survey 2014

This report presents the findings from the Violence Against Children Survey (VACS) in Nigeria, which was carried out by the National Population Commission in 2014. The survey, the first of its kind in both Nigeria and West Africa, provides national estimates that describe the magnitude and nature of sexual, physical and emotional violence experienced by under-18 females and males in Nigeria.

This information is designed to help support efforts in Nigeria to develop and implement effective child-friendly violence prevention strategies, as well as to improve service provision for all Nigerians, especially for children who experience violence.

UNICEF in Nigeria has also produced a series of YouTube videos on violence against children in Nigeria. Three are featured here:

1. Emotional Violence: Words can build, words can break

2. Sexual Violence: How many more children will have to suffer in silence

3. Physical Violence: Don't we want our children to flourish
