Maiduguri, 8 June 2017 - Nigerian refugees, who recently returned from Cameroon, are now facing enormous challenges and dire reception and living conditions due to lack of food, shelter, water and sanitation, as well as limited and overstretched health facilities. This is particularly the case in Pulka and other areas of return in northeast Nigeria, where returnees who had arrived in Banki since April are being relocated.
