Social Commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi, is set to release his “hard-hitting” documentary Coping with Boko Haram.
The two-part documentary focuses on the Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria, especially after the hoopla of the Chibok kidnapping.
Part one which focuses on Maiduguri examines how the people are trying to survive and coping with the Boko Haram insurgency in the town. It looks at the contributions of volunteers from a variety of sectors including healthcare and education as well as NGO organizations that refuse to leave the supposedly dangerous areas.
It also shows the relic of the mosque which was founded by the late leader and Founder of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf, where he used to live, at the railway compound.
The second part of the documentary focuses entirely on the Internally Displaced Persons; their new lives as refugees, their living conditions, their experiences of being displaced, their suffering and how they have overcome the challenges and how corruption remains an issue in the IDP camps.
It is filmed entirely in Nigeria.
Coping with Boko Haram will be broadcast exclusively on www.saharareporters.com, Premium Times, and BEN TV SKY 182 tomorrow October 1, 2015.
