UK Media Reports That Nigeria Is Facing A Famine Never Seen Before ''

According to skynews,Nigeria is on the brink of "a famine unlike any we have ever seen anywhere", according to the United Nations.




Nearly a quarter of a million children in Nigeria's north east are severely malnourished, according to the UN's Assistant Secretary-General Toby Lanzer.
Millions more are thought to be starving in refugee camps that are too dangerous for aid agencies to reach.

Nigeria is already economically struggling - it is in a recession for the first time in more than a decade, inflation is at an 11-year high and oil, which makes up 70% of the government's revenue, is still suffering from a slump.
For the country's north eastern region, however, things are made worse by Islamic militants Boko Haram, who have disrupted trade and farming in the region and are also hostile to western medicine.
Mr Lanzer said that, if Nigeria doesn't get help fast, "we will see, I think, a famine unlike any we have ever seen anywhere".
Speaking at a meeting in Brussels, Mr Lanzer said of the millions who haven't yet been reached: "We can't assess their situation - we can estimate that it's awful."
 Jean Stowell is an American midwife in charge of a 110-bed feeding centre in Maiduguri, which is the largest city in the region.
The Doctors Without Borders-run centre tries to keep up with demand but, every time it grows, the extra places are rapidly taken.

Ms Stowell told the Associated Press: "These are kids that basically have been hungry all their lives and some are so far gone that they die here in the first 24 hours."

There are around a million people in Maiduguri's camps - most of them fleeing the reach of the terrorist group - and many of them are also struggling with hunger.

And yet, outside the camps, the markets are filled with fruit and vegetables - all of it far too expensive for the average refugee.
The Nigerian government is investigating claims that officials have been stealing food aid.

  1. Stella if the demographic information is based only on the North East then I am right to say UN is wrong. Nigeria is divided into 6 geopolitical zone and they are saying there is famine in the land based on statistics from one of the zone. I am not understanding.

  17. This is highly embarrassing. When the idiots in charge of the IDP camps are impoverishing the vulnerable and carting away with their relief materials and food. Heck, this is bound to degenerate.

    Can anyone blame them? When we are a house that is divided in itself. Msheew

  23. There is severe starvation and hunger in the north east IDP camps. Its most unfortunate that staff in charge divert food and materials meant for these under privileged people. Yes I said so because I have people working there.

  24. Abeg if it not farmine then what is it??on top all this Economic hardship

  25. Sterra, times are really hard o, the hike in prices of goods is better imagined than experience, sadly, that's what buhari and his cohorts have turned Nigeria into......

    ReplyDelete
  26. Western media with their useless headlines! There is no famine in Nigeria.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Which famine, this kind of report shows how incomplete some of the so called studies are. Everyone knows that the north east is suffering because of the incessant 'war of terror' unleashed by the boko haram which has led to displacement of peo in the region and by extension, loss of livelihood and homelessness. Yes,inflation is biting really hard and the prices of commodities are high but God has been good to my family. Things are better for us than in GEJ time I tell you....We still eat our regular food and honestly every serious minded Nigerians should start thinking outside the box abeg.

    For all those who are crying foul about Buhari time, please can you honestly say that your life was better during the time of GEJ????

  30. Stella has understood it without understanding it. The millions of people in IDP camps are suffering hunger starvation and famine but the surrounding communities have plenty to eat. Where do the IDP's come from? The communities around Lake Chad basin where Buhari is looking for oil. Buhari has cleared those communities and is now starving the original owners to death in IDP Camps. In other words, genocide by starvation hunger and famine.

  31. The Nigerian government and Nigerians should be taking charge and lead regarding development interventions in that region. This is a huge embarrassment to the Nigerian government. There seems to be little known about the strategy in place at the moment and more needs to be done.
