The crisis in Nigeria’s North Central and North West zones, which involves long-standing tensions between ethnic and linguistic groups; attacks by criminal groups; and banditry/hirabah (such as kidnapping and grand larceny along major highways) led to fresh wave of population displacement.
Latest attacks affected 293 individuals, including 14 injuries and 16 fatalities, in Igabi, Zagon Kataf LGAs of Kaduna State, Jibia, Kankara LGAs of Katsina State and Maradun LGA of Zamfara State between the 16 - 22 November, 2020. The attacks caused people to flee to neighboring localities.
A rapid assessment was conducted by field staff to assess the impact on people and immediate needs.
