Nigeria: Displaced women live in fear as incidents of rape rise

The Abagena camp in the city of Makurdi was supposed to be a refuge for the people, but most people don’t feel safe here anymore. A sharp increase in rape of women and young girls is bothering the community.

One of the world’s deadliest conflicts is taking place in Nigeria‘s central region.

Thousands have been killed in decades of fighting between ethnic groups. About 4,000 have been killed in the last two years alone.

Now another crisis has added to the troubles of those displaced by this conflict.

Al Jazeera’s Mohamed Adow reports from Makurdi in Benue state, where women in camps live in fear of their safety.
