The crisis in Nigeria’s North Central and North West zones, which involves long-standing tensions between ethnic and linguistic groups; attacks by criminal groups; and banditry/hirabah (such as kidnapping and grand larceny along major highways) led to fresh wave of population displacement.
Latest attacks affected 1,184 individuals, including 18 injuries and 22 fatalities, in Chikun LGA of Kaduna State and Kankara LGA of Katsina State between 07 - 13 December 2020. The attacks caused people to flee to neighboring localities.
A rapid assessment was conducted by field staff to assess the impact on people and immediate needs.
