Violence in Nigeria: “I ran away by myself because they were cutting people’s throats.”

It’s been one year since Boko Haram captured 276 girls from their school in Borno, north-east Nigeria. Since then, more than 1.2 million people have been forced to fleed their homes to escape the violence. Children have see things that no child should ever see. This are three of their stories.

Ahmid (15): “I ran away by myself because they were cutting people’s throats.”

Sani (10) “A man pointed his gun at us and said he was Boko Haram. Then he took us. My father paid 10,000 Naira (€46) to get me back.”

Peter (15) “I will never forget Boko Haram.”
