In northeast Nigeria, hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by the ongoing conflict between Boko Haram and the Nigerian Armed Forces. Some have lived in temporary homes for years while others have been continually on the move. Each of them recounts a life of hardship while searching for a glimmer of hope. These are stories from people settled in the towns of Banisheikh and Pulka, in Borno State.
Young girls are most frequent victims
Over the last few months, there has been a rise in attacks by the Boko Haram terrorist group in the North East. More worrying is that in some cases, these attacks have been successful, with Boko Haram overwhelming security forces and taking captives in the process. Many of these attacks are suicide attacks targeted at Maiduguri with the University of Maiduguri coming under a serious and concerted threat perhaps for the first time. This has led the authorities to dig a two metre trench around the school. This has led to a lot of talk about a resurgence of Boko Haram.

Since 2013, acute insecurity in northeastern Nigeria has uprooted Nigerian families and generated immense humanitarian needs. In cooperation with the Nigerian government, and in light of significantly improved access to people in need, the humanitarian community has worked quickly to launch a large-scale emergency response since 2016. However, conditions remain particularly fragile in eastern Borno State, where ongoing insecurity continues to restrict access to basic services and impede relief operations.
ABUJA – As the world marks the World Humanitarian Day, the Nigeria INGO Forum pays tribute to the efforts of the humanitarian community, national civil society, and the private sector, to confront the ongoing crisis in North East Nigeria. Since January of this year alone, humanitarian assistance has been delivered to over 1.8 million Nigerians displaced by the conflict, over half of whom are children.
• An estimated 1.69 million people are still internally displaced across the three north eastern states of Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe. Of them, 85 per cent are in Borno alone.
• Between January and June 2017, the Nigeria Immigration Service registered 19,257 Nigerian refugee returnees, including 15,036 refugee returnees returned during the recent influx from April to June.
• The IOM DTM Round XVII (June 2017) estimates that a total of 1.69 million people are still internally displaced across the three north eastern states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, of which 85 per cent are in Borno alone.
• Between January 2015 and 15 June 2017, the number of Nigerian returnees registered by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) with UNHCR support reached nearly 360,000 individuals.
