Displaced persons in Borno, Northeast Nigeria, are increasingly becoming targets of abduction by terrorist groups. Especially those in unofficial camps, as the state government has since closed down all official camps. 

In addition to worrying about food, shelter, and relief materials, they now have to also fear for their safety when they go to their farms to plant or harvest crops. 

Women IDPs are also now being used as couriers of ransom for these abductions. This is a story of a young man who was abducted a month and a half ago and a woman who had to deliver his ransom.

The story was reported and scripted by Hauwa Shaffi Nuhu and edited by Kunle Adebajo.

Hosted by Hameeda Buhari

Voice acting by Akila Jibrin and Hajara Ibrahim

Produced by Attahiru Jibrin
