Prolonged insecurity in the north- east of Nigeria has caused ongoing displacement with about 1.7 million internally displaced people (IDP) across three most affected states - Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. Recent assessments indicate slightly more than 1,000,000 IDPs living in host communities. Some 207,000 people have fled to neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger to seek safety from violence and unrest.
