Thousands of victims of sectarian violence in Nigeria are still waiting for justice years after crimes were committed against them.

Hundreds of internally displaced people continue to live in refugee camps that they fled to when violence broke out after the 2011 general elections.

Many say they still do not feel safe returning to their old homes and few believe justice will ever be served.

Human rights groups have blamed the government for the lack of justice.
