Caption : North-Eastern Nigeria. This man's son was a student at the Federal Polytechnic College in Damaturu. They had both fled from Damaturu to Kukareta for safety in 2013 before the village was also attacked and they lost sight of each other. The father does not believe reports saying that his son might have died. He copes with the void by praying, busying himself with his kolanut business and surrounding himself with friends.

"The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to reunite family members who have been separated during the armed conflict of Lake Chad. Providing knowledge about the fate of those who have gone missing during situations of armed violence is a core part of the ICRC's work. Presently, over 21,600 cases of missing persons have been reported in Nigeria and are actively being handled. This series of pictures depict persons who have no knowledge about their loved ones' whereabouts."
