International humanitarian-aid non-governmental organisation Doctors Without Borders or Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) have been active in the conflict-torn Borno state.

Borno is the state most affected by the violent activities of terrorist group Boko Haram.

The violence exhibited by the terror group has led to a loss of thousands of lives and the displacement of even more.

The Borno state government then had to proceeded with investigation on the allegations.
