Landmines Pose Grave Dangers in Nigeria

 

Roughly 1.5 million internally displaced people have started to return home since Nigeria’s army began clearing large areas of the country’s northeast region. Islamist militant group Boko Haram obtained swathes of Nigeria’s northeast last year and killed thousands in the unprecedented land grab. The group took over most of Borno state as well as parts of Adamawa and Yobe while increasing incursions on neighboring countries.

These regions are filled with dangerous unexploded remnants of war, including thousands of landmines. For more information on the dangers facing Nigeria, please follow this link to read the full story from Reuters:
