The ongoing conflict in northeast Nigeria has affected most, if not all, people who live in the area; with Adamawa, Borno and Yobe being the three most affected states. For the eighth consecutive year, the humanitarian crisis has deepened, resulting in the displacement of nearly 1.8 million people; 89 per cent are from Borno, out of which 91 per cent are within the state and children constitute the majority of the displaced population. As the rainy season approaches, potential flooding in these areas would only deepen the humanitarian crisis leaving an additional 130,000 to 200,000 in need of humanitarian support. Access to populations who are already critically food insecure would become more difficult while the spread of disease and destruction of shelters could increase.
