Nigerians Are Dying Of Hunger, And The World Is Ignoring Them

Attacks by the terrorist group Boko Haram are preventing aid from reaching the starving people who need it.

UNICEF warns 75,000 kids in Nigeria could die from hunger if they don't get proper aid within a year.  

And it's because the terrorist group Boko Haram's attacks  are cutting off aid. All over Nigeria, people are starving. 

In Northern Nigeria, there are seven times as many people cut off from aid as in Aleppo, Syria
