UN says some children in the North East risk dying of hunger.

The United Nations has said that some 75,000 children in the North East risk dying of hunger in “the few months ahead”.

UN Humanitarian Co-ordinator PETER LUNDBERG said that overall, 14 million people need humanitarian assistance in a region that was the former stronghold of Boko Haram militants.

He warned that the UN did not have enough funds to avert the crisis.

LUNDBERG added that this figure included some 400,000 children, and that 75,000 of them risk dying in the few months ahead if nothing is done rapidly and seriously”.
