The UN Secretary General António Guterres is due to meet the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, and government officials in the capital, Abuja, later on Wednesday.

Mr Guterres is on a field trip in Borno state, where he is visiting UN agencies and humanitarian groups who have been helping thousands of families who fled attacks by Islamist insurgents.

On Tuesday he met former members of the jihadist group Boko Haram at a de-radicalisation camp in the north-eastern city of Maiduguri.

The UN says more than two million people have had to flee their homes in north-eastern Nigeria as a result of attacks by Islamist militants.
