 Insecurity: G7 Nations Pledge Millions For Boko Haram Victims

The G7 group of wealthy countries has pledged 276 million pounds to assist millions of people affected by the Boko Haram insurgency in north-eastern Nigeria.

The group is expected to support efforts by the United Nations and other Aid Agencies in helping victims of the conflict.

A statement from the United Kingdom High Commission in Nigeria says Britain is leading the coordinated move by the G7 countries to provide humanitarian assistance this year.

British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing stated that G7 are trying to avert further deterioration of the food security situation for millions of people affected by the conflict.

In February, the UN had launched an appeal fund for one billion dollars to help more than eight million vulnerable people in North-Eastern Nigeria.
