Nigerian mother: 'My baby was born under Boko Haram'

The violent jihadist group, Boko Haram, is best known for kidnapping 276 girls in Chibok in April 2014.

But that was only one case among many abductions they have carried out across the northeast of Nigeria.

BBC News has heard from a woman who gave birth after Boko Haram militants took control of her village.

The woman, who wants to remain anonymous said: "The woman I was with decided to go over the wall... and that was how we escaped."
