At least 175 people have died due to cholera outbreak in northern Nigeria since the start of November, a humanitarian group has said.

The group said it recorded some 10,000 cases of cholera, mostly in camps for displaced people in the northern Nigerian state of Borno.

According to the Norwegian Refugee Council, 440,000 people were forced to leave their homes because of attacks by the terror group, Boko Haram. They now live in overcrowded camps in Jere and Maiduguri.
