Thousands of students continue to attend the University of Maiduguri in northeastern Nigeria despite at least a dozen attacks by the Boko Haram insurgency since the start of 2017. Chika Oduah reports from Maiduguri on how the university has been able to stay open and some would say even thrive amidst the constant danger.
Nigeria has the world's highest occurrence of fistulas - abnormal holes in the birth canal. Between 400,000 to 800,000 women in Nigeria developed the condition while giving birth. The Nigerian government says addressing early marriage will help to reduce fistulas, but health workers say other cultural factors are also to blame for the high rate. Chika Oduah traveled to the cities of Sokoto, Jos and Kaduna to visit fistula treatment hospitals and meet women afflicted with the condition.
