Herdsmen attacks displaced more Nigerians than insurgency in 2019- Report

A report by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre has shown that criminal violence in North-West Nigeria as well as attacks by armed herdsmen in the Middle Belt region, displaced more persons than Boko Haram insurgency did in the first half of 2019.  

The report stated that 140,000 persons were forced to leave their ancestral homes between January and June.

Parts of the report said, “criminal violence in North-West Nigeria and clashes between herders and farmers in the Middle Belt region forced more people to flee than the Boko Haram insurgency.”

Across the globe, 10.8million people were displaced by storms, flood and conflict while 3.8million of that figure was down to conflicts.  It added that climate change-powered natural disasters drove 7million people out of their homes.

“These figures are alarmingly high, particularly as we are only half way through the year. They show that the causes of conflict and inequality are not being addressed, and that displacement is creating cyclical patterns of crisis and vulnerability,” Alexandra Bilak, IDMC’s director said in a statement.
