What next for the millions uprooted by Boko Haram?
In April, four journalists published a photo essay in The Guardian about the consequences of the Boko Haram insurgency in the Lake Chad basin. They visited refugee camps in Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. Their photographs tell the stories of fractured families and untold suffering. While the Nigerian government has made great strides against Boko Haram, nine years of the insurgency have deeply marked the region. “Beneath the mayhem of Boko Haram lies the real problem, which is extreme poverty,” says Kashim Shettima, Governor of Borno State.
