With the onset of the rainy season in Nigeria’s northeastern states of Borno, Adamawa, Bauchi and Yobe, varying degrees of damage have been reported in host communities, camps and camp-like settlements. Heavy rainfalls, accompanied by strong winds have resulted in floods and damage to shelters and infrastructures.
Between 14 and 26 September 2022, IOM’s DTM programme carried out assessments to ascertain the level of damage sustained in camps and locations where IDPs are residing in the host community. Overall, 7 host community locations and 5 camps were assessed. The worst-hit of the assessed sites was Alhaji Bashir Camp, located in Dikwa ward of Dikwa LGA, in Borno State. The flooding of the camp displaced an estimated 3,605 individuals to neihbouring villages and communities.
