“Mercy Corps is suspending operations in Borno and Yobe states, Nigeria, following the closure of four of our field offices by the Nigerian military,” the group said.
According to the newspaper, some soldiers camped at the entrance to the Mercy Corps’ office in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state.
