Violence curbs farm productivity in Nigeria

Increased violence in northeastern region of country has forced thousands of farmers to flee.

    Damboa town in Nigeria's Borno State is the main crossroad for farmers bringing their produce to the market, but deadly attacks and raids in the region are forcing thousands to abandon their fields.

    And with some of Nigeria's most fertile agricultural land now deserted, fresh produce is hard to come by.
