July 2018 Overview:

Recent figures on displacement monitoring in the Northeast Nigeria shows that there are 262 IDP camps in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe State hosting 744,769 individuals and 151,451 households which is over 30% of the entire displaced population (DTM Round 23). Population movement mainly driven by voluntary relocation including government assisted relocation, ongoing conflict and poor living conditions continued in July with 24,548 arrivals and 4,059 departures recorded. The highest arrivals were in Bama (3,953), Demsa (3,136), Gwoza (2,847), Nganzai (1,646) and Numan (919) LGAs. Highest departures were recorded in Numan (698), Bama (540), Madagali (392), Askira/Uba (200) and Monguno (100). The movement also had arrivals from neighbouring countries Cameroon (1,259), Niger republic (602) and Chad (60).


Floods and storms, as a result of the ongoing rainy season, have damaged 3,000 shelters across Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states, some of these shelters are repaired, which others need to be totally rebuilt. However, the majority of the damaged shelters have not been repaired or rebuilt due to lack of resources. The sector has had to prioritize the most affected sites.

The arrival of hundreds of newly displaced people in Bama LGA continues to present challenges in providing sufficient shelters with about 5,000 individuals in Government Senior Science Secondary School (GSSSS) camp currently in need of shelter. Sector partners are rehabilitating existing structures in the camp that will be used to house some of those without shelter but this still leaves the majority in need, and additional land needs to be made available to build more shelters.

The sector is continuing to advocate with the relevant authorities for additional land to decongest and/ or expand existing camps as congestion in camps continues to be a constraint in provision of effective assistance. This is mostly due to the absence of relevant state authority in the various LGAs is delaying the process of securing additional land. The situation of BAMA, BANKI, NGALA, MAFA, PULKA, DIKWA are so critical.
