STORYLINE:

Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed travelled to Borno State, in Nigeria’s northeast on Tuesday (10 Nov) where she visited UN field operations and met with Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

Accompanied by the Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum, the Deputy Secretary General (DSG) visited Banki town in Bama Local Government Area, to have a first-hand knowledge of the situation at this deep field location which shares border with Cameroon.

The DSG inspected the UN facility, the border wall and the border control. She engaged with IDPs in camp before she returned to Maiduguri.

On her return from Banki to Maiduguri, Mohammed addressed a group of students at Gomari Mega Girls School.
