Boko Haram victims continue to face hardship

As Nigeria forces launch offensive, fears grow over government's inability to cope with the number of displaced people.

    In Nigeria, five years of violence in the north-east has forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.

    The state of Adamawa was once a refuge for victims of the unrest, but it has now become a battlefront between Boko Haram fighters and Nigerian security forces.
