As of 02 February, the estimated number of IDPs in Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe was 1,782,490 (339,037 households). This figure represents a 4.5 per cent (79,810 IDPs) increase, in comparison with the 1,702,680 IDPs identified in Round XX (December 2017) – exemplified in Figure 1 below. This increase represents a change from the trend of steadily decreasing numbers, observed between May and December 2017 (Rounds XVI to XX). The slight increase in the identified number of IDPs is attributable to the arrival of Nigerians from neighboring countries into situations of secondary displacement, as well as communal clashes and military operations.
