Maiduguri overwhelmed by victims of Boko Haram insurgency

December 16, 2016

Yannick Pouchalan, director of Action against Hunger in Nigeria, says "it is clear that Maiduguri cannot offer a decent life to all these people,"

Yet compared to the villages, the refugees, especially the youth, find the city has more to offer.

"If you are 15, and you can take advantage of the security, the services of a big city and have access to the internet... you're surely not going to go back home to your village," Pouchalan says.
