Fashion in Borno State is bold, beautiful and always bright. And every #Eid, a time for celebration and decoration, the young and old dress to impress. And in this series, we follow the Eid fashion.
An unquantifiable number of women have been abducted by Boko haram from their homes in villages around Borno State. A minimum of 40 women and young girls in each village from 2009. The women and girls are transported to terrorist camps and turned into sex slaves, maids, brides and other are used as suicide bombers. It was a brutal time.
But in recent times, we've seen intensified efforts from the Nigerian military and the youth vigilante group in rescuing women and girls. These women are brought to Maiduguri by the military, screened and kept in Safe homes created by the State government where they receive medical treatment, feeding, psychosocial support and for others, deradicalization. After a couples of weeks when they are deemed fit, a reunification commences where members of their families are located and they move in with them. Some are with their families in camps, others in host communities.
But one problem has risen, some people in the communities are rejecting these women. These are the their stories
Boko haram attacks on villages around Borno State have resulted in villagers fleeing to various communities around Nigeria and other countries around West Africa. This has left villages empty; becoming ghost towns with ruined buildings and land mines.
