In the three crisis-affected states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa in north eastern Nigeria, markets remain fragile with reduced level of activity, reduced number of traders and low volume of stocks as insecurity remain the key factor hampering movement and trade. While the threat of suicide bomb attacks in markets remain high, ambushes along major trade routes have also made travel along such roads riskier, contributing to reduced trade flows and access to markets when compared to the pre-crisis period.
