The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has said there is “little indication” of a return to normalcy in many areas of Borno State.
It said in the three North-East states (Borno, Yobe and Adamawa) affected by the activities of the Boko Haram insurgency, the Internally Displaced Persons were concentrated in 25 towns.
The UNOCHA stated this in the September, 2017 edition of its publication, ‘North-East Nigeria Humanitarian Overview’.
In a write-up titled, ‘Challenges and the Way Forward’, the UN agency stated, “Outside of Maiduguri, the state capital, civil administration and state services are limited. Most recently, humanitarian partners have noted with concern an increase in attacks in and outside the IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) locations.
