Aliko Dangote visits IDPs Camp (Photos)

On Sunday, Nigeria’s richest man, the businessman Aliko Dangote, along with the Irish rock star Bono visited camps where some of the 2.5 million displaced by Boko Haram are now sheltering.

Dangote told BBC that the international community should give Nigeria help: "If we don’t rebuild their homes, their schools, their lives, two million people could actually become a danger to the world."

Bono said he was there because this story of malnutrition not getting out. "Fifty thousand children are going to die round here if they don’t get what the UN is looking for. These are just abstract concepts until you meet a malnourished child and until you meet a child bride and you think - oh that’s the face of Boko Haram, it's not men in battle fatigues out in the bush, it’s what they leave behind."
