Sudan – Emergency Event Tracking Report Gereida, South Darfur 004

DTM teams activated Emergency Event Tracking (EET) to monitor the displacement of individuals affected by inter-communal conflict between Falata and Arab tribes in Gereida locality, South Darfur. Tensions erupted in and around Tuel village on 18 January 2021, following a violent assault that occurred the day prior. On 1 March 2021, inter-communal conflict erupted between Falata and Masalit tribes in Gereida town, due to increasing tensions over a local water source. Clashes in the Hai Aljazeera and Hai Alrahman areas of Gereida resulted in houses and infrastructure being burnt down. 

The fourth EET update estimates a total number of 8,030 individuals (1,612 households) displaced across Tuel, Dereige, Tulus, Dika, Dagama and Gereida town. Since the third update, 8,808 individuals from the original caseload have now returned to their locations of origin due to security improvements. On the other hand, a new caseload of 5,527 individuals (1,148 households) have been displaced to the Hai Aljazeera, Hai Alrahman, Hai Al Shatei and Um Dawan Ban areas of Gereida, having previously sought shelter in a military base in Gereida town. At present, the new caseload is seeking shelter with host communities, in schools and other public buildings, as well as gathering in open areas – their homes burnt down during the 1 March clashes. All new arrivals are Sudanese nationals and at least 348 of these individuals (499 in total) have additional vulnerabilities in need of assistance and support. Reports still indicate 71 individuals of the total caseload have been killed and 88 sustained injuries, whilst at least 258 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have lost personal belongings and livestock. Based on a ranking scale, the three main priority needs across the total caseload remain non-food items, food, and emergency shelter.

Nigeria — North East Flash Report (04 March 2021)

The lingering conflict in Nigeria's North East Geopolitical Zone and occasional communal clashes have been the major causes of widespread population displacement in the region. Over 2 million individuals in North East Nigeria have been forced to leave their areas of residence in search of safety and security in other wards, LGAs and states.
 
A rapid assessment was conducted by DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix) field staff on 20 February 2021 and 03 March 2021, with the purpose of informing the humanitarian community and government partners, and enable targeted response. Flash reports utilise direct observation and a broad network of key informants to gather representative data and collect information on the number, profile and immediate needs of affected populations.
 
Following the delay of the inauguration of the Mai Tangale (the king of the Billiri community), communal clashes erupted and resulted in the displacement of 1,338 individuals from Billiri LGA in Gombe State to the neighbouring ward Tal within Billiri LGA, and the LGAs Akko, Kaltungo, Balanga and Gombe. Additionally, 19 individuals were displaced from Marte LGA in Borno State to Zaki LGA in Bauchi State as a result of an attack by a Non-State Armed Group which occurred on 14 February 2021 in Marte LGA.

Nigeria — North Central & North West Flash Report #41 (01 March 2021)

Nigeria's North Central and North West Zones are afflicted with a mulltidimensional crisis that is rooted in long-standing tensions between ethnic and religious groups and involves attacks by criminal groups and banditry/hirabah (such as kidnapping and grand larceny along major highways). The crisis has accelerated during the past years because of the intensification of atacks and has resulted in widespread displacement across the region.
 
Between 22 and 28 February, armed clashes between herdsmen and farmers, and bandits and local communities have led to a fresh wave of population displacement. Following these events, a rapid assessment was conducted by DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix) field staff with the purpose of informing the humanitarian community and government partners, and enable targeted response. Flash reports utilise direct observation and a broad network of key informants to gather representative data and collect information on the number, profile and immediate needs of affected populations.
 
Latest attacks affected 2,220 individuals, including 53 injuries and 61 fatalities, in Chikun and Igabi LGAs of Kaduna State, Sabon Birni LGA of Sokoto State and Maru, Maradun, Tsafe, Zurmi, Gusau LGA of Zamfara State. The attacks caused people to flee to neighbouring localities.
