Maryam Sofo is an 80-year-old widow, now living in a camp for displaced people in Bama.

Two years ago, her family left their hometown of Banki, near the border with Cameroon, after frequent attacks made daily life extremely difficult. 

Several thousand people have fled Rann in northeast Nigeria following a violent attack on the town on 14 January.

On December 26, non-state armed groups attacked a military base in Baga, Northeast Nigeria, forcing as many as 40,000 people to flee to safety in Monguno and more than 25,000 to flee to Maiduguri. Action Against Hunger is on the ground in both towns helping the newly displaced.
