A retired nurse from Nigeria has been describing how she gave shelter to 50 people who were fleeing the Boko Haram terrorist group.

The fifty displaced people ended up staying for seven months and were fed and looked after by 59-year old Aishatu Margima in Adamawa state, in the north-east of the country.

Ms Margima told her story to Fabrice Robinet at the World Humanitarian Summit which took place in Turkey this week.

She explained what happened to the people who were fleeing Boko Haram.
