Florence Pwana saw a disturbing but unsurprising sight when she walked into an empty makeshift tent at the Shuwai 2 camp for internally displaced people. The camp rests along the outskirts of Maiduguri, capital of Nigeria’s Borno state. Hours earlier, a resident at the camp helped to deliver a baby in the tent, and some of the camp’s residents showed Pwana the exact location where the woman lay on the floor, traces of blood still visible.
