Ten years since the war Liberian refugees feel they cannot return

Liberia has been marking 10 years since the end of its civil war during which more than a quarter of a million people died.

Despite the years of peace, thousands of Liberians still choose to live as refugees.

The Oru Refugee Camp, near Lagos in neighbouring Nigeria, was officially declassified as a refugee camp in 2007.

Tomi Oladipo finds out that there are still over seven hundred Liberians living there with no intention of returning back home.
