Many of these attacks are suicide attacks targeted at Maiduguri with the University of Maiduguri coming under a serious and concerted threat perhaps for the first time. This has led the authorities to dig a two metre trench around the school. This has led to a lot of talk about a resurgence of Boko Haram.

Since 2013, acute insecurity in northeastern Nigeria has uprooted Nigerian families and generated immense humanitarian needs.
