The flight to Niger takes the total number of refugees fleeing that part of Nigeria to more than 60,000 since the first wave in April last year, it said.

The deadliest attack in Nigeria claimed 47 lives in Katsina state, the agency said.
This prompted air strikes by Nigerian security forces already stretched tackling a decade-long insurgency by Islamist group Boko Haram in the north-east.
Niger is also beset by jihadist violence, notably around Lake Chad, where the borders of Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria converge.
The EFCC said it was investigating alleged corruption involving about $130m (£105m) in contracts for roads and water projects.
It is also investigating money-laundering allegations.
The contracts were awarded by Nigeria’s Zamfara state government to China Zhonghoa Nigeria Limited between 2012 and 2019.
Neither the Chinese company nor its officials have commented on the matter.
Arrests of officials of foreign companies linked to corruption are rare in Nigeria.
