It is saddening to see innocent people, particularly young women and children suffer from the evil acts of some devilish group.
Nigeria is actually not in a state of war but the steady actions of the radical Boko Haram, most recently the Baga Attack, has continued to produce thousands of refugees and internally displaced people. The fact that ‘Nigeria is not Syria’ is actually causing a kind of neglect to the plight of these displaced people go through.
The hardship of loosing their homes, livelihood and possessions is too much too bear and they are really suffering, depending solely on charity for their daily meals.
I fear that if the Nigerian situation goes unchecked, a refugee crises might be on the way. It is time for the UN and Nigerian Government to act in synchronization to save lives.
