Pick up you @nytimes today for @sarahtopol 's epic story of four boys and the decisions they make to survive. Thanks to @nytmag and the @pulitzercenter for their support and the opportunity to do this work. Link in profile.

Civilian JTF (joint task force) are locals who arm themselves and assist the military. Though sometimes they work together, they often work apart. This group, the Youth Vigilantes of Borno State, prepared to accompany a convoy on Damboa Road. Photo from January 2017 on assignment for @nytmag

A convoy lines up at the end of Maiduguri early in the morning to drive to Damboa, a small town just a few hours away. Civilians are not free to move around Borno state as it is under the control of the military and the roads are incredibly dangerous. The convoy is escorted by military vehicles, though that doesn't stop Boko Haram from attacking them at times. Photo from January 2017 on assignment for @nytmag

Elders gather at Teacher's Camp, an IDP camp in Maiduguri home to over 7000 people, to discuss young men who had been abducted from their community in Baga. Photo from January 2017 on assignment for @nytmag

Drawings of guns and helicopters are on the wall of the men's room at an Internally Displaced Persons camp called Teacher's Camp on the outskirts of Maiduguri. Men and women sleep separately, everyone in incredibly cramped corners. The camps in Maiduguri are often in abandoned public works projects. Photo from January 2017 on assignment for @nytmag

Families get ready for nightfall at Custom House, a large IDP camp on the outskirts of Maiduguri that is made up of unfinished public housing buildings and semi-permanent structures. There are more than 1.7 million displaced in Northern Nigeria alone, and the number of shelters at refugee camps does not meet the needs of the huge population. The camps that do exist are often difficult places, cut off from town and markets, and frequent sites of suicide bombs.

While I was in Maiduguri, Northeast Nigeria, I was able to accompany the military on counterterrorism operations in the fight against Boko Haram. Read about these and more about working in Borno in this week's Notebook column in @nytmag. Link in profile. Thanks to the @pulitzercenter for their support.

Earlier this year, I spent nearly a month in Maiduguri working on this story for the @nytmag Please give @sarahtopol 's deeply reported and nuanced story a read. Thanks.

Four boys from Baga, a fishing village in northeastern Nigeria, were among thousands of children abducted by Boko Haram and trained as child soldiers. They learned to survive, but only by forgetting who they were. @glennagordon photographed one of the boys, Zanna, for this week's cover story by @sarahtopol. The names of the children were changed to protect them against retaliation from Boko Haram, the Nigerian government and their own community. For the same reason, @glennagordon's photos were cropped. “That small part of the face of this boy who was kidnapped at 13 by Boko Haram is all that was safe to show,” writes Jake Silverstein, our editor in chief.
