Report: 2.7 million have fled homes because of Boko Haram

April 06, 2016

Attacks by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram have caused 2.7 million people to flee their homes in the Lake Chad basin, according to the Doctors Without Borders.

“A conflict that originated in Nigeria has expanded across borders into Cameroon, Chad, and Niger, causing widespread displacement and suffering,” the humanitarian organization stated.

“Suicide bombings and lethal attacks occur on an almost daily basis, and the civilian populations in all these countries are suffering from the consequences of indiscriminate violence perpetrated by armed belligerents from all sides.”
