By sending female officers to its internally displaced persons camp in Maiduguri, Nigeria hopes to get to the bottom of sexual abuse cases on residents who fled Boko Haram insurgency. The cases have been reported and pinned on some of the male officers who aid in the camps. The report that sparked the move said that officials either raped women and girls or lured them into sex in exchange for financial and material benefits. Nigeria has been dealing with Boko Haram and the trail of destruction they have left behind including the kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in 2014.
