Desert Encroachment: Picture of Yusufari Sand Dunes in Yobe State Goes Viral on the Internet

The Yusufari sand dunes image above is surely a beautiful sight to behold of natures wonders. It is one of many natural and human wonders within that Boko Haram devastated northeast.

Abubakar Gambo said on faceBook: This is neither North Africa nor the Middle-East, this is Yusufari in Yobe state, Nigeria. 

“While we shouldn’t underestimate the seriousness of desert encroachment, we shouldn’t forget that some parts of the Nigeria have been desert regions for centuries. I think in our effort to stop the encroaching Sahara we shouldn’t end up losing the diversity of the terrains across the country. By the way, this is Kuri-Wakko dunes in Yusufari, I think either MTN or Glo has once used the place in their adverts.”
