A group of former Boko Haram members have staged a protest in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State, demanding food and other basic amenities from the Nigerian government.
The former militants, who surrendered to the military as part of the government's amnesty program, claimed that they had not received any assistance since they renounced violence.
They also accused the government of failing to provide jobs and other support to help them reintegrate into society.
The protest has raised concerns about the efficacy of the government's amnesty program and its ability to address the root causes of insurgency in the region.
The protest highlights the challenges facing the Nigerian government as it seeks to rehabilitate and reintegrate former members of the Boko Haram insurgency.
Since 2009, the Boko Haram insurgency has killed tens of thousands of people and displaced millions from their homes in northeast Nigeria.
The government has offered amnesty to militants who surrender, but the program has been criticized for being slow and ineffective.
Many former militants have complained of a lack of assistance and support, and there have been reports of them returning to violence.
