Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency. ― Google

On 9 February, the humanitarian hub, which includes aid workers offices and accommodation in the northeastern border town of Damasak, close to Niger, has reopened, enabling them to stay and deliver critical assistance to over 120,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) and refugee returnees in the area. The hub had closed in April 2021 following multiple non-state armed groups (NSAG) attacks that directly targeted the facility, resulting in serious damages. Although aid provision resumed after a fourweek suspension following the attacks, humanitarian operations have been limited due to the closure of the hub. The reopening will support the ongoing scale-up of humanitarian aid in Damasak, where spontaneous refugee returns from Niger continue to take place
