Nigeria Niger Refugees

Nigeria refugees rest after being deported by Niger troops arrive in Gaidam, Nigeria Thursday, May 6, 2015. Niger troops have deported more than 3,000 Nigerian fishermen and refugees escaping Boko Haram, forcing them to undertake a brutal three-day trek in which at least a dozen people died, an official and witnesses said Wednesday. Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency’s Charles Otegbabe said it was alerted by Niger and sent trucks to collect the exhausted refugees at the border, registering at least 3,000 new arrivals in Gaidam town and expect hundreds more.
