Nigeria's Boko Haram Violence Intensifies, Thousands Displaced

Since November 2018, there has been a steep increase in the number of people displaced in north-east Nigeria. At least 59,000 people, mainly women and children, have been forced to flee Boko Haram militants and other armed groups in Borno State, the heart of the displacement crisis.

Gubio Camp in Maiduguri has received 4,500 new arrivals since November 2018, many of them in recent weeks following an attack by non-state armed groups in Baga, near the shores of Lake Chad, in north-east Nigeria.
