The Nigerian army has shut down the office of a Non-Governmental Organisation, Action Against Hunger, in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
The army took the decision after six employees of the organisation were taken hostage by jihadists.
“They came and asked everyone in the building to leave. They said it was an order from above,” a staff member from the aid agency told AFP, on condition of anonymity.
