The rainfall in Teacher’s village of Maiduguri Metropolitan Council, left 198 emergency shelters damaged, 2 damaged toilets and an estimated 1,084 individuals without shelter. The affected population without shelter include 474 men, 610 women and 638 children.

There is a major need of shelter, shelter repair kits, construction and sanitation materials as a preparedness measure in all camps, provision of basic NFI as well as reconstruction of damaged toilets and shower areas. No casualty was reported.
