Twenty-three people have been feared dead in a stampede during a food distribution by the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum at a refugee camp housing Nigerians in Niger Republic.

Over 120,000 Nigerians displaced by Boko Haram terrorists have taken refuge in Niger Republic.

Officials of the Borno State Government were engaged in the distribution of the food items to Nigerian refugees living in Niger Republic, but Zulum was said to have travelled to Diffa, a border community in Niger Republic, where he met over 120,000 Nigerians who fled their homes some years ago.

The 120,000 are among the millions of Nigerians who have been displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency in North-east Nigeria.
