NEW YORK, 17 January, 2017 – “UNICEF is deeply concerned by the loss of life in Tuesday’s tragic incident in Rann, Borno State. Our thoughts are with all those who were injured.
These deaths, in a remote area of northeastern Nigeria, where protracted conflict has caused extreme suffering and triggered a severe malnutrition crisis, underline the importance of protecting civilians in complex humanitarian emergencies.

Boko Haram-related conflict has led to a severe humanitarian emergency in the Lake Chad Basin region and potential famine in inaccessible areas of northeastern Nigeria. At least 7 million people in the region are in need of food assistance. Internally displaced persons (IDPs) and trapped populations are at greater risk due to insecurity and poor or degraded infrastructure which impede aid delivery. There are currently 2.6 million people displaced across the region.
We regret that among the casualties of today's air strikes in Ran, there are 6 Nigerian RC members killed and 13 wounded. They brought desperately needed food for over 25 000 displaced persons
We are profoundly saddened with the news of casualties among the Red Cross staff and volunteers in Ran. Our thoughts are with the families of the dead and wounded Red Cross colleagues.
The Red Cross is deeply concerned about reported casualties among civilians and humanitarian workers in today's air strikes on Ran, North East Nigeria.
(Maiduguri, 17 January 2017): The UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) today dispatched a helicopter with four medical personnel, 400 kg of emergency medical supplies and airlifted eight Nigeria Red Cross workers injured following a military airstrike that hit Rann locality of Nigeria’s north-eastern Borno state.
The ongoing conflict in northeastern Nigeria has left an estimated 1,770,444 people (approximately 313,923 households) displaced in almost 2,000 locations across the 6 most affected states in the region:
Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, etc. The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted a series of assessments in 1,948 locations in the six states in order to gather information regarding the situation of IDPs in the locations.
JANUARY 17, 2017— At least 52 people were killed and 120 wounded today when the Nigerian Army bombed an internally displaced camp in Rann, Nigeria, according to the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), which has teams in the area.
