There has been a noted increase in displacement at several sites along the Maiduguri-Monguno Road, namely in Gajiram, Gajiganna and Tungushe towns, over the last several months. Gajiram, Gajiganna, Gasarwa, and Burimari have been reported as destinations for IDPs since August 2016, with displacement originating from Monguno, Marte and Kukawa LGAs, with a total of 5,461 IDPs recorded by the IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix (IOM-DTM) at the end of November 20162 . As of December 2017, the IOM-DTM reported as many as 16,571 IDPs in Gajiganna, 10,741 IDPs in Gajiram, 4,948 in Gasarwa and 2,739 in Burimari3 . In January 2018, a secondary displacement of IDPs occurred from informal camps in Gasarwa and Burimari due to a related sense of perceived insecurity by the IDPs. In total, 3,457 IDPs left these informal camps moving to Gajiram and Monguno4 . In January 2018, the IOM Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) reports recorded 2,633 new arrivals in Gajiram and 350 in Gajiganna from either nearby surrounding villages or secondary displacement from Gasarwa and Burimari5 . Movements from surrounding villages were reportedly due to attacks or fear of attacks by Armed Opposition Groups (AOGs). Rapid assessments between October to December 2017, conducted by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) and Action Against Hunger (AAH), have reported the majority of newly arrived IDPs in both sites lack appropriate shelter, and need support to access food, water, latrines, and non-food items (NFIs) in Gajiram.
