Nigeria: INGO Recommendations on Refugee and IDP Returns and Movements

Summary

In 2017, thousands of people are still on the move across Borno state in northeast Nigeria. There are many reasons for this movement. Some are being displaced for the first time; others are moving or being relocated by authorities into LGA headquarters either from rural areas in the LGA, from already established IDP sites elsewhere and across the border from Cameroon into Nigeria, back across the border where they become IDPs.
