Mouvement de population: Les ménages évalués sont originaires du campement Peulh de kublé Mamatra dans la commune de Chétimari situé au sud-ouest à 7 km.

Ces incursions exacerbées par les menaces d’enlèvement et la tentative d’assassinat d’un des leurs ont créé une panique générale au sein de cette population les obligeant à abandonner leurs habitations pour venir trouver refuge à Chétimari.

Aperçu de la situation

Le puits de Rijian Malam se trouve à 85 km au Nord-Est d’Abala dans la commune d’Abala. Tout autour du puits se sont installés plusieurs déplacés ayant fui les conflits intercommunautaires à la frontière Mali-Niger. Ce conflit oppose les Touaregs Daoussahak aux pasteurs Peulhs qui ont trouvé refuge autour de Rijian Malam. Certains Peulhs ont fait le mouvement à titre préventif car ils n’ont pas été attaqués par les Daoussahak. Pour les autres, c’est un mouvement postattaque.
