In northeastern Nigeria, it is not that strange when you say a person is missing. There are tens of thousands of people who have not been accounted for since they left their home communities because of the Boko Haram crisis.

In this episode, we take a look at the story of Bakura Ali Gajaw, who went missing alongside his brother in 2015, when the family fled Nguro Soye, a community in Borno State. His wife, Yakawu Bulama, says she does not plan to remarry as she is still hopeful of his return.


Scripted and Reported by Kunle Adebajo, Edited by Hauwa Shaffii Nuhu.

Produced by Attahiru Jibrin

Voice acting by  Rukayya Saeed.
