Idris Adam, who lives in an IDP camp in Maidaguri, described a series of landmine explosions he witnessed near his village.Â''We always used the road to go to Konduga. One morning a boy was taking a cow cart with maize and sorgum to market. The cart exploded outside the village. The boy was injured and the two cows were killed. Then another cart went to get the bodies of the animals and his cart also exploded, killing him and his cows. If we are able to go home, we won't be able to use the roads. These landmines last for ever, they never go away.''
