The journeys of millions of people in northeast Nigeria are mostly alike. They were living peacefully in their communities before Boko Haram erupted. Then, in 2014 or 2015, it got worse and they had to find shelter elsewhere, particularly the state capital, Maiduguri. So they ran. Some of them died on the way, some got detained, and others made it to Maiduguri, to IDP camps. When they first fled, they imagined it would be temporary. But it’s been eight years and they are still displaced. How do they feel about this ill luck?
