In the contested northeast of Nigeria, the military has been able to recapture more and more territory lost to Boko Haram. DW's Adrian Kriesch has gone to the town of Mubi -- where Boko Haram terrorists were driven out exactly one year ago.
In Nigeria, Mubi is known as the city of peace; half of the population is Christian, the other half Muslim. It has now become home to 100,000 Boko Haram refugees.
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Nigeria after more than three months in London for medical treatment. His absence has caused tension and uncertainty at home.
Three years after the abduction of the Chibok schoolgirls, many are still in captivity. Their kidnappers, Boko Haram, remain active. A local religious leader talks to DW about terror, corruption and politics.
Nigerian authorities have said 82 Chibok schoolgirls have been released into military custody in the north of the country. The girls have received medical attention and are to be flown to Abuja to meet the president.
