Cameroon: Refugee influx from Nigeria
In the northeast, the Boko Haram (BH) insurgency has affected more than 14 million people, and more than eight million are in need. After 10 years of conflict the group continues to carry out high-profile attacks against the military and civilians in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa states. An escalation of Boko Haram attacks has been observed in the last six months in Borno state.? Some 800,000 people in northeast Nigeria are entirely inaccessible.?
Violence in the northeast has caused massive displacement and at the same time restricted movement: it has disrupted food supplies, hindered access to basic services, and limited agricultural activities.?Food security, nutrition, WASH and protection assistance continue to be priority needs.
INFORM measures Nigeria's risk of humanitarian crisis and disaster to be very high, at 6.8/10.?
26/05: At least 25 people were killed and several others were reported missing after Boko Haram insurgents ambushed a military convoy that transported people from Sabon Gari to IDP camps in Damboa, Borno state on Saturday 26 May. Civilians were being moved on Saturday ahead of a imminent military offensive against insurgents in the area.?
VERY HIGH CONSTRAINTS
Access in the northeast remains restricted due to insecurity. Presidential and legislative elections on 23 February led to increased violence, impacting aid operations. Humanitarian staff relocated throughout the election period, particularly in humanitarian hubs in northeast Nigeria. Over the few past months, a marked deterioration in access was observed in the northeast due to increased Boko Haram attacks and military operations. Some 800,000 people in northeast Nigeria are entirely inaccessible. Rann town, Borno state has been inaccessible to humanitarians following the attacks in mid-January that displaced 30,000 Nigerians to Cameroon. Access in most other affected areas is highly constrained and only partially accessible to humanitarian actors.
