A Nigerian documentary about terrorist group Boko Haram was the sixth most-viewed video on YouTube in the country in 2017.

Almost a year after Channels TV first aired Boko Haram: Terror Unmasked, YouTube listed it as one of the 10 most-watched videos in Nigeria.

Presented by Ini Thompson, the four-part doc was uploaded to Channels TV’s YouTube channel in February 2017 and has since attracted more than one million views.

Boko Haram: Terror Unmasked explores the deadly attacks the group has carried out over the years in the northern part of Nigeria since its inception in 2002.

The doc was packaged by Washington DC-based Voice of America (VOA). The videos have  aired on several VOA platforms during 2017.
