14 Million Nigerians in Need of Humanitarian Aid

Around 14 million people will need humanitarian help in the former northeast Nigerian stronghold region of Boko Haram

Around 14 million people will need humanitarian help in the former northeast Nigerian stronghold region of Boko Haram militants and tens of thousands of children will be at risk of dying from famine, a UN official said on Tuesday.

The Islamist militant group has killed 15,000 people and displaced more than 2 million from their homes during a seven-year insurgency in Africa's most populous nation and biggest energy producer.

Nigerian military forces backed by those from neighbouring states have pushed Boko Haram back to the northeast's vast Sambisa forest in the last few months, enabling aid workers to access areas previously controlled by the jihadists.
