WATCH: How Displaced children live in Uhogua IDP camp

16 May 2016, 07:39

Abuja - Extreme Islamist sect Boko Haram has been waging a war path through Nigeria for the past seven years, killing millions of innocent citizens in a bid to enforce its interpretation of Sharia law.

Over the years that followed the group's inception, Boko Haram has destroyed infrastructure, kidnapped women and children and left scores of Nigerians desolate and afraid.

At the centre of the conflict lies approximately 650,000 displaced people, who's homes and lives have been destroyed in the bloody battle.

In a video released by Naij, children are seen playing and laughing despite their deplorable circumstances, with President Muhammadu Buhari even stating that there are currently too many children living in camps for the displaced.

See below footage from the Uhogua IDP camp in Edo State, where displaced children carry on their lives as if unaffected by raging insurgency.
