Results show that the average daily number of individuals observed in June, at the FMPs in Nigeria was 869. This represents a 26 per cent increase compared to the daily average of May 2020. The increase from the previous month could be attributed to the easing of lockdown/movement restriction imposed by the Federal Government of Nigeria as a response to the increase in communal transmission of COVID-19 virus.

In addition, the main type of flows identified were: short-term local movements (43% of all flows); economic migration of more than six months (38% of all flows); seasonal migration (16% of all flows); and tourism (3% of all flows).
