The United nation sensed the danger and raised an alarm regarding this matter. Attacks from the Islamic state of West Africa along with the Boko Haram group have increased while the elections are coming closer. President Muhammadu Buhari is supposed to get elected for a second term and for this, security of citizens has become a primary issue.
Several towns in Borno have been captured by the ISWA. This has led the citizens to shift to a comparatively safer place at Maiduguri, the state capital.
Edward Kallon, the head of the United Nations operations in Nigeria said that the fights have impacted the innocent civilians greatly. It has created a humanitarian tragedy and devastated the conditions of the lives of the people.
