Nigeria North-East: Adamawa State Humanitarian Situation Analysis (January - August 2020)


Adamawa State continues to experience increased humanitarian needs driven by conflict, including attacks by non-state armed groups (NSAGs) and clashes with Government  Forces (GF), and inter-communal clashes. A total of 204,699 people are currently displaced1, according to the IOM  Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 32 report.

During the reporting period, four suspected cases of Lassa fever were recorded in Yola, the state capital, on 27 January. The cases were admitted at the Federal Medical Center, Yola, and later confirmed as Lassa fever, prompting state authorities to declare a Lassa fever emergency.  

Flash flooding and windstorms destroyed over 1,000 houses, four public facilities and claimed at least five lives across LGAs during the reporting period, marking the onset of the rainy season.

The state government directed the merging of Malkohi and Fufore IDP camps into one to consolidate and ease the management of the camps due to a decrease in the number of IDPs, many of whom have returned to their communities of origin or integrated into host communities. The merger will also allow government agencies to use the IDP camps for their original purposes, such as schools and classrooms for education activities.
