About Me


Nelly Ating is a freelance Journalist and doubles as a Photojournalist reporting
from the front lines of Boko Haram in Northeast Nigeria.
Ating uses photography to enhance storytelling, as a genre, which has gained increasing relevance in matching figures with an actual proof.

With her unique stance as a writer, Ating wades into the conflict’s hot zones to document the destruction that Boko Haram has wrought on Adamawa, Borno and the other states in which the terrorist had a presence.


Over the years, she has tactfully captured the stories of conflicts - Boko
Haram and the Farmer/herders crisis - in the northeast, extensively reported
about abductions of school girls carried out by one of the world’s deadliest terrorists groups, Boko Haram. 

Her work has been published on renowned local and foreign dailies and
blogs: CNN, Premium Times, Vanguard, Thisday.
