Boko Haram arrests worsen Cameroon prison conditions
6 January 2016 (IRIN ), Detention conditions in Cameroon's prisons are worsening as thousands of people suspected of having links with Boko Haram are thrown into jail. An ill-equipped court system fails to process the cases, while suspects languish indefinitely, and more and more arrive from the Far North Region each week.

A cold wind blows for Nigerians made homeless by Boko Haram
5 January 2016 (IRIN ), The temperature is dropping across northern Nigeria as the seasonal Harmattan winds blow in a haze of dust from the Sahara, blotting out the sun for days on end.

This year's neglected migration crises
21 December 2015 (IRIN ), In 2015, all eyes have been on the Mediterranean and Europe's so-called migration crisis.

Is education Boko Haram’s biggest victim?
7 December 2015 (IRIN ), The mass abduction of schoolgirls, the displacement of millions, and the relentless suicide attacks have received most of the Boko Haram headlines, but the exodus of teachers and the disintegration of the education system could be a longer-lasting legacy that sets northeastern Nigeria back a generation.

Africa’s meningitis A vaccine: how partnership replaced ‘Big Pharma’
17 November 2015 (IRIN ), For years, the unwillingness of big pharmaceutical companies to invest in treatments for diseases that primarily affect the poor has hampered epidemic management in the developing world. But now an experimental partnership working without the support of 'Big Pharma' has delivered an incredible success: a vaccine that has all but wiped out meningitis A across Africa in less than four years. Is this the future of medical research and development in lower-income countries? Elizabeth Blunt reports:

Nigeria says ‘go home’, but is it safe from Boko Haram?
17 November 2015 (IRIN ), The Nigerian government plans to start closing camps for those displaced by the Boko Haram conflict by the end of December, forcing thousands of people to return to the very places they fled.

The Quiet Americans
9 November 2015 (IRIN ), Kitting out a Nigerien army unit is not what most humanitarians would consider the best response to Boko Haram. But for the NGO Spirit of America, it is precisely the sort of muscular aid – along with more traditional wealth-generating development projects – that’s needed to tackle the militants.

Crude awakening: can oil benefit the people of the Niger Delta?
4 November 2015 (IRIN ), The thick, acrid smoke billowing above the tree line is the telltale sign of local refining of stolen crude oil in Nigeria’s troubled Niger Delta, but environmentalists are looking to find less environmentally damaging ways for communities to benefit from the oil.

Since you've been gone: the families migrants leave behind
8 October 2015 (IRIN ), Every migrant who sets out on a journey leaves behind a family. Our natural focus is on the odyssey, and the crisis that drives people from their homes. But migration is much more than just about people fleeing conflict or seeking asylum. It affects many more people than those actually on the move and navigating hostile borders. Those left behind, out of the media spotlight, also carry a burden – both financial and emotional – in supporting loved ones on their journey. This special report focuses on two such families.
